  • I just give my daughter kisses, tell her goodnight, and tell her to have "good sleeps". That's it. Pretty basic I guess. =)

  • We do bath time, quiet time, bed time. I put her in bed, tuck her in, kisses and say good night. LOL

  • But if he tries to make excuses and keeps coming out of his room....then I tell him to get his butt back in his room or else!! lol

  • My daughter is 5, until recently I would tuck her into her bed. Lately she has just been giving me a kiss and putting herself to bed because her room is a disaster, and I would rather not risk my life walking into it. lol

  • We read first, then we have a little tickle fight (which probably is a bad thing since it gets him worked up) but he thinks its so funny. I say how old are you? and as he counts to four I tickle him on 3. It's something he does with his dad when dad is at home. I give him about a dozen kisses, he squeezes me tight. I tell him goodnight, sweet dreams. I have thought about doing the good night, sleep tight, dont let the bed bugs bite, but bed bugs are a serious thing these days! haha
