When the Kids Go To Sleep

Another episode of Finish the Sentence Friday, where bloggers link up and finish the sentence.

Finish the Sentence Friday

This week’s prompt is When my kid(s) go to bed, I…

When the kids go to sleep, I…

1. Go to bed myself

2. Stay asleep (I was already in bed before they were because I’m old)

3. Watch a grown-up movie (violence, sex, cussing, sexy men like Bruce Willis… we need these things once in a while)

4. Make the husband rub my feet (foot rubs are much longer if I ask him while watching a movie because he gets so much into the movie, he forgets he’s rubbing my feet).

5. Eat food I was hiding from the kids, i.e. chocolate, cake, ice cream, Swedish Fish

6. Sex and Vodka, preferably followed by hot hot wings or a medium rare steak.

7. Shower (I only skipped one day, or has it really been 3 days?)

8. Shit, I forgot to do that load of laundry so the kids have pants tomorrow. Maybe I’ll just go to Walmart and get new pants.

9. Internet. Finally uninterrupted internet service. Too bad I’m too tired to write anything.

10. Stare at my kids. They are so cute when they aren’t demanding shit and fighting and destroying the house.

    I have totally been guilty of eating chocolate in the bathroom at ten at night.

    Swedish Fish? YUMMMMM and OMG I’m so jealous that your husband forgets he’s rubbing your feet when he’s into a movie. Mine ALWAYS remembers. And he’s not that good at it in the first place. Also? Yeah. Watching our kids sleep is maybe one of the best reminders of how much we love them..

    Yep, seems like we’re operating from roughly the same list. Although we don’t have a WalMart near us, so I’d have to do the laundry instead. I’d also add blogging to the list. Can’t get enough time to actually sit and think and write until the little guys are in the Land of Nod.

    Very cute. I love that we all hide the good food from the little buggers 😉

    YES! All those things. My husband and I rub each other’s feet and watch Breaking Bad after the kids go to bed. It’s my favorite part of the day.

    I don’t care for feet rubbing, but I can get my husband to watch anything I want if I scratch his head while it’s on. Sad, yes. But useful!

    I love this list and Swedish Fish! 😉 Hubby and I like to catch up on our shows when the kids go to sleep and on weekends I do it with a glass of wine or two cuz I like to live no the edge like that.

    I like the idea of asking my husband to rub my feet. I don’t think he has since I was pregnant. I love watching my kiddos sleep. It reminds me how much I love them, no matter how hard that day was.
