Happy Fun Detail Friday! I can’t wait to hear all the details or tips that are making your day better!
Today, I’m sharing a tip about bedtime. Routines, in general, are a big part of what makes my family work. But bedtime routine is the ultimate, because bedtime = soon-to-be adult time if all goes smoothly. How many of you can relate to that?
We have a very solid bedtime routine, filled with bath time fun, books, and snuggles. My little tip today is about what to do before bedtime. It’s my pre-bedtime routine (oh gosh, did I just say that?!?). I spend 5 minutes (that’s it people) laying out towels, washcloths, pajamas, diapers, etc. sometime between dinner and bedtime. I find a way to sneak away and get things set up for bedtime.
I get everything ready in the spot where it will be needed. Towels and washcloths in the bathroom, baby bathtub in the tub, pajamas located where kids will be dressing – we’re ready! I know to some of you this might sound a bit too much, but trust me, it makes bedtime even smoother. Everything is in place. No carrying baby-chasing toddler-gotta get the diaper before the baby pees-moments when I do my pre-bedtime routine.
Even when I’m sans daddy, I find a way to do this. Not every night goes this way, just so you know, but when I take the time for this little detail, it’s a nice ride into bedtime routine.
So, tell me! Do you have a pre-bedtime routine? Or a tip or detail you are loving on this wonderful Friday? I’d love to hear anything that makes your day better or easier!! Have a great weekend!
