Right now, as you read this, I (Erin) am over 1000 miles away from my current home, searching for a new home to purchase. I love the new Blogger function of scheduled publishing! Anyway, I started realizing that my kids' bedtime routine is going to be pretty messed up the entire 10 days we are gone.
Also, if you remember from a couple of weeks ago, we had a poll on the sidebar asking what time you get your children to bed. I wanted to know whether you had firm bedtimes, and frankly, I was surprised so many of you have your children in bed before 7:30. I'm pretty jealous!
So this week, I decided to make the theme of the week bedtime routine. I want to know what books you read, who brushes their teeth (them or you), whether you sing songs, take baths, and just how you tuck your precious ones into bed at night. I know that routine helps children feel secure, and I also learned (well, remembered; I already knew this) in church last Sunday that traditions strengthen family ties. What works for you, and what do you do that might help or benefit the rest of us?
