There's a Party Going On

No, not really. Sorry to disappoint .  But I swear that's what my kids think happens every night after I tuck them in and kiss them good night.

You would think at 7 and 9 they would know the dirty truth. Seriously dirty.  When they go to bed mommy cleans up the little ( and sometimes big) messes around the house. There's dishes to do, last minute loads of laundry, leftover toys hidden and forgotten about to put away, counter top crying for a good scrubbing and even lunches to be put together ahead of time.
Mommy is seriously not rocking out and partying hard after you go to sleep. Heck, where would I even find the energy?

If daddy's home sometimes he can convince me to put my feet up and snuggle on the couch with him. But that's rare.  The only weeknights he's home are Monday and Thursday and since he has to get up at 3:30 he's usually already fast asleep on the couch by 8 pm.  So I quietly go about my work without waking him until it's done. 
If it's a really good night I may actually watch a show on television or curl up with a cup of hot tea and a good book.

How's that for mom the party animal?  Disappointing, isn't it.
