World Record: Kids in Bed by 8:45!

Well, I don't know about you folks, but at my house getting dinner on the table, kids bathed and in bed before 8:30 just doesn't happen all that often. Pre-kids the hubs and I used to have a rather night owl-ish schedule. We'd wake up at 11 a.m. and the day wouldn't end until around 3 or 4 in the morning! We used to photograph ourselves in bed with coffee in hand, and then take a picture of the clock reading 10:54 a.m., we'd send the pix to all of our 9-5 'er friends at their work email addresses just to rub in how great we had it. Well, lemme tell you something folks, PAYBACK is REAL! 
Our youngest usually wakes up at 6:30 a.m.(we're not certain he is really ours!)  our oldest wakes at 8:30-9:30ish (Atta Boy). Anyhow the day is full, and we look forward to that quiet time after the boys are in bed. I've been craving an earlier bedtime for them, but we just haven't been able to get structured enough to pull it off. Well tonight, the hubs is out of town and all that changed.
7 p.m. Dinner: check. 
7:45 bathe kids: check, 
8:00 feed the little guy: check, 
8:15 read books: check 
8:30 in bed: CHECK!

Yay!! Getting kids to bed early feels so good. Mama and papa NEED that grown-up time to feel sane. Although I must say I am envious of your former schedule -- noone should have it that good! ;)
