<span style="color:#FF6666">Annika has gotten wonderful about going to bed. 9 and she's out. Shawn and I will usually spend about 30 minutes or an hour talking and hanging out. Afterwards I head for a hot shower, then lay in bed reading my book then off to night night land.

Matthew is in bed usually by 7-7:30. Justin is suppose to be in bed by 8, but we have been letting him stay up alittle longer so he can have some one on one time with me. He tells me when he is tired and then heads off to bed. I then either head to bed myself, or catch up watching my dvr'd shows.
I usually go to bed when the kids do or thereabouts ...maybe I stay up and watch the news or surf the internet some. My toddler has been SOOOOO bad about going to bed lately!!! Last night I fought with him from 10pm to midnight to go to bed and then he was back up at 5:30 AM !!!!! aaaaaahhhhh!!! He kept crying and screaming for no reason other than being stubborn... The kids are supposed to be in bed around 9:00...
We're very laid back about bedtime here, though when the boys were younger I was very strict on following a routine and having a set time. Most nights Cam goes to bed around 10:30ish and Branden usually heads to his room between 11- 11:30, and will watch a movie or read until after midnight. My rule of thumb is he can stay up as late as he wants providing he can get up in the morning and function civilly!
Edited because I forgot the first part of the question! Blaming my preggo brain!
It depends really. We usually end up watching a movie, reading, playing games, playing on the computer, or just hanging out and talking while we cuddle on the couch.
