Usually, it takes me a good half of an hour to get relaxed after Rowan goes to sleep. I am always a bit wired from the dinner/playtime/bathtime routine that occurs between 5:30-7:30.
Once I leave Rowan’s room, I usually grab the emergency chocolate chips that I ALWAYS have in the freezer and putter around cleaning up the messes from the day. Usually by the time I am done, I am just relaxed enough to realize how tired I am. As I am writing this, I am laughing at how different (boring) my evening routine has become.
