This week, Sally asked us to focus on our routines.
This summer, our routine has been a bit bumpy, to say the least. The time I generally had to myself during the school year is now spent driving to swimming lessons or playing games with the kiddo.
The routine that has stayed the same, though, is the kiddo's bedtime routine.
First, there is the jawhawk.
Then, there is the music.
The jayhawk is a blanket given to the kiddo by my in-laws. The kiddo loves this blanket and, every night, she tells it (and my husband) about her day. It gives her a chance to unwind and remember the cool things we did.
Her music is just as important to her. I don't know why, but the kiddo loves the song from "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." We start with that, then listen to whatever the ipod decides to play next. She loves the songs and listening helps her relax and (hopefully) sleep better.
Okay, so this isn't *my* routine. However, my husband and both love the kiddo's bedtime routine and it really is a family routine. :)
