A couple of tunes helped make the difference tonight.
The first was on repeat as I started the after-dinner dishes.
We got this party started.
Meal with the kids, a typical dad dinner: New York beef hot dogs, and vegetable options: tonight it was green beans, carrots, or corn.
Dessert was simple, treats mom brought home from the store recently. And then there was a mix of self-guided activity to round out the evening. Everyone was tired this morning, so I was trying to angle for early to bed.
It was tricky.
Somehow we had lights out before 9 o’clock in the evening.
