The bedtime routine takes a while, and when I’m busy I’ll grumble that I could use that time. But when I think about it, I wouldn’t trade it for all the time in the world. You’re right -it’s when everyone’s connected. Joella fineandfair November 2, 2012 at 12:53 pm With a new baby on the way, I have tried to be more conscious of not rushing bedtime with my daughter, and using it as a time to connect and bond while we sing songs, read books, and she tells stories. The genuine snuggles and kisses at the end of the day are so precious! Amy EnjoyMothering November 3, 2012 at 1:54 am Thank you for this, just lovely. And true. 🙂 Laura November 11, 2012 at 12:56 am Appreciate the focus on connection. I used to dread the lengthy bedtime routine, but I’ve come to appreciate it as a time to connect. Momma Jorje MommaJorje January 10, 2013 at 3:49 pm What a lovely post! I try to create real connection among the entire family at dinner as we play “High / Low.” There is still dinner, though, and things happening. I have trouble taking the time at bedtime because one is 3 and one is 1… I usually need to go tend to the baby or he is on my back fussing to go to sleep, too. Bedtime is all too often a struggle for me, but this sounds so beautiful. I’m going to try to keep it in mind and see if I can work some of this peace into our relationship. Momma Jorje MommaJorje January 18, 2013 at 12:26 am Well, I’ve been working on this time for the past week and every night is good, restful results. We often just talk about the stars projected on the ceiling.
