Bedtime is hard work. It is multi-player game that evolves over a lifetime.
Congratulations on the routine that is mostly working for this season. Even more, kudos for all of the effort and trials and teaching that has gone into tonight’s bedtime. Here’s to you for brushing countless teeth and running lakes of tubs, helping with jammies, kissing all those lovies, singing the songs, praying the prayers, answering silly questions, listening, reading the same book (with no edits allowed), snuggling, and tucking in with (mostly) patience every night.
Hurray! You’ve gotten them settled with all that they need. Again. Happy evening to you.
