Wine with Friends

Last night I got together with several of my favorite preschool moms for wine and conversation.  A couple of them won’t be returning to Cutie Pie’s school in the fall which makes me a little sad.  I hope that we are able to keep in touch though.  They really are a great group of ladies who helped me keep my sanity when I led the parent volunteer group.  It was a much needed night out.

I left there feeling so relaxed only to arrive home at 11 PM to my kids who were still awake.  To J’s credit he was busy cleaning up the back porch from the pool parties and setting up our old laptop for Wildman.  But still, I kind of lost my cool when I heard little kid voices at such a late hour.  I am with them all day long everyday.  I really don’t want them to be up during the night which is our only quiet time.  I just wanted to come home to J and talk or hang out.  Is that selfish?  Instead of spending time together, he could not understand why I was annoyed and we fought…

The children did go to bed as soon as I got home but it really wasn’t what I wanted to come home to.  The kids were up at normal time this morning and are tired as a result of their late night.  *sigh*
