–Bedtime Routine–

It’s been a day mamas… do you agree? Does it feel like it’s been a week already and tonight should be FRIDAY? Yup — me too.

Here’s what we just got done with, Chase’s bedtime routine:

6:30 p.m. Get home from work and unload baby, carrier, his bag, my bags, coffee mugs etc. Get in door and hunt for the keys for 20 minutes.

6:45 p.m. Put Chase in his room for some play time while starting his bath. Watch him perk up as he here’s the water running (see the bath time video from last night if you missed it — it was a hoot if I do say so myself).

7:00 p.m. Get Chase in his seat in the bath tub and let him splash me and himself for about 15 minutes, upon which he’ll try to climb around.

7:15 p.m. Put Chase in his PJs and try to keep him “contained” on the changing table — make sure he doesn’t fall off.

7:20 p.m. Read some bedtimes stories and say some goodnight prayers.

7:30 p.m. Kisses and cuddles and then it’s in the crib for Chase.

7:35 p.m. Turn off the lights, close the door and do a dance. Because it’s bedtime mom, your favorite time, and it’s all yours… all 2 1/2 – 3 hours of it.

8:30 – 9 p.m. (the timing is a little elusive) Try to read, paint your nails, catch up on life, read a book, netflix, in this time span. But will most likely end up drifting to sleep on the couch too little too early.

You rock mamas!
