What’s your bedtime routine with the kids? When did you stop tucking your little ones in?
My partner and I were reminiscing our childhood and I realised I wasn’t tucked in from a pretty young age – My parents said goodnight from where they were and i’d take myself to bed. My partner was tucked in for a long time.
We currently have 5 kiddos – 4, 6, 7, 8 & 10 and each of them get hugged, kissed, 3-5 days a week lullaby/story and sometimes a chat (for whoever needs it that night). Sometimes it’s 5 hugs and kisses before you’ve left the room but most of the time it’s lovely. Sometime’s when we buggered we consider the fact that it would be nice if some of them took themselves to bed but we know we want to enjoy it while we can!
Some nights we break it up and let the older ones read in bed while we put the youngsters to bed too.
