After finishing dinner, we go outside for a little while. Sometimes we take a walk, sometimes we go to the crabbing pier to watch the fish jump, and other times we head over to the playground to slide and climb. Tonight, we took a moonlit walk (dinner was later than usual due to some calls Papa got) and even saw little toads on the sidewalks and driveways!
Once we come back inside, we head to the tub. The babies tire themselves out splashing and playing with their sponges, rocks, and shells. I wash them and put on their pajamas.
I recently read about this yummy sleepy-time snack and it works like a charm for us. I make a small mug of warm milk with honey and cinnamon and toast some bread topping it with butter and honey. I also try to tell a story to the children while our daughter eats. The characters are named after our children and the storyline usually comes from something we did that day.
Time to brush teeth and hair!
