  • Eat, try not to rush. We all share our fav and least fav parts of the day.
    Wash up (baths or showers in the spring & summer for both kiddoes)
    Put on pjs, brush teeth
    Meet on the love seat with 3 books, one chosen by me, and ea. kid
    After stories, if my husband is home, he will read a little to them, if he is working (out of town), it's bedtime. We have a CD player in the hall both kids can hear. We take turns choosing whose turn it is to pick a CD.
