Bedtime: My favorite time.
Okay so I've got a little time before I take shower (finally) to write something that I thought some of you may be interested in & I also would like to hear your bed time routines with your children (either on here or facebook!)
Step 1: Bath
Giving 5 kids a bath is kind of crazy especially when they all want to take one first....I wish we had 2 bathrooms!
Step 2: Kisses, hugs, & stalling.
After about the 5,000th kiss for each kid & 10 millionth hug you can guess that SOMEONE has an excuse. My foot hurts, I got hurt, they hit me, I need a drink....& the list goes on...The famous quote of the night is always....Get your butt back upstairs NOW or I will take away ______!
Step 3: Repeat step 2 for about 10-20 minutes
It's true. I know every single child stalls! I think our kids have got it down to an art if you will!
Last but not least Step 4: Enjoy the peace and quiet
It finally happened. They are asleep. Their tiny angelic faces are at rest for real this time. They aren't hiding anything or getting into anything. They are in dreamland and SOON we will be too....G'night!
