Bed time is actually pretty tame around here. So many people complain about their kids not going to bed at a decent hour or about the kids fighting bedtime. Paige has a bedtime, for the most part. It varies between 7:45 and 8. It depends on how late we're running with dinner & how long she plays in the bath.
Bed time has been the same for close to 2 years now. Paige puts herself to bed. What can I say? She's her mother's daughter and likes to sleep. My Paw Paw could sleep sitting in a chair in the back of his grocery store. It's a family thing. Our routine has varied a bit and evolved over these 2 years. I must say that the latest version is by far my favorite.
Paige is finally old enough to sit and listen to stories now. She's listened to stories for a while, but is now sitting longer and longer at a stretch. Paige purchased this book with a gift card she received for her birthday. Each night we read the story for that day. After that we read a Dr. Seuss book to her as well.
We alternate nights of reading to her. Tonight was a daddy night. It was so sweet to see him sitting there next to her bed, reading her a story. I think it's one of the cutest things I've seen.
