Should have clarified. 2 older kids are teenagers. They are home with the younger one after she goes to bed at 8pm, and usually me wife and I are home until she goes to bed. Quite often we go out after then, or she does, or I do. This dynamic is soon to change as the 2 older kids will be moving out in a few months to go start their own lives, so I'm not sure how that would have worked at that point.
