Everyone has their own bed time routines. Some could be the same or completely different. Since becoming a mom my routine got longer.
Since I work on a farm and have to be up early my son and I are in bed by 8:30pm. So my normal routine starts at 7:45pm. Here is a break down:
- make sure my son and I both have our drinks for bed
- brush teeth
- get my sons movie ready for him
- set out work clothes
- get snacks and drink and ready for work
- bathroom break
- change my sons diaper and get him in his pjs
- put my son to bed
- the off to bed for myself
Even though just looking at my nightly routine it may look like it doesn’t take 45 minutes. You are correct! I always give myself extra time because either my son won’t let me out of his sight or he’s throwing his temper tantrums. If there are days where my family and I have plans after I get off work I will set out clothes for my son and a change of clothes for me. So how similar or different is your bed time routine to mine?
