I love bedtime. I love my kids and I cherish the time I get to spend with them, but I LOVE bedtime. There is nothing better than a quiet house with children nestled safely in their beds. As a mom, down time is a precious commodity. Since my daughter stopped napping in December, it has become even more sacred to me. That being said, there is nothing more irritating than kids who are not cooperating at bedtime. My daughter is about to be three and her negotiating skills are quite impressive. She doesn't take no for an answer and has a long list of tactics to extend her bedtime routine. There are nights when I find this cute and enjoy reading "just one more story". There are others when all I want to do is pour myself a glass of wine and see what the Kardashians are up to. My cousin recently sent me a link to some bedtime reading material that may come in handy on such an occasion. Pre-order yours on Amazon today;)
A sense of humor is an important tool for motherhood. I hope that this appeals to yours.
