Wordful Wednesday ~ Bedtime Routine

First ~ A gazillion stories.

Then, some funny faces and goofing around to get the sillies out.

A kiss for sweet dreams . . .

Settling in.

Winding down.

A temper tantrum or two if we've waited a liiiiiiitle too long.

And one more attempt at stalling. Another drink of water, a second {or third, or millionth} kiss.

And then . . .

Off to dream land.

That's how we do it at the Fraijo house. How about y'all?

Your girlies are too cute! That sounds pretty similar to what happens at our house during bedtime too:)

Your girls are super cute. We need to read much more than we do and really make that a priority in our routine. We also could use a better routine...hmmm...sounds like I need to do some tweaking!

Your girls are so darling! How do they sleep in jewlery. That's the first thing I take off when I come home.

Michael does most of the bedtime routine. :o) I'm going to take over the teeth brushing/flossing though.

That tantrum face made me smile. It looks like Bailey....a LOT. :) With three, we have found that it's harder to get everyone down at the same time, so this summer has been a bit more laid back with bedtime. The girls are allowed one movie at night before bed and the last few nights they have all 3 fallen asleep during it in my bed. So then we just move them to their beds. I do miss the story reading and snuggles but the break has been a bit nice too. :)

We have that same beginners Bible in our house!

Sounds much like our night routine!

iKeith is the putter to bedder. He tells or reads stories and then does this thing called Rock-a-by *insert child's name here*.

They don't like when I put them to bed because I don't know the stories or the routine.

Awe, your girls are soooooo cute!! That's similar to our bedtime routine...when we get to follow it. It's been so crazy busy lately. There are some nights we all come home and just go straight to bed...but always lots of kisses and hugs...and bedtime prayers, of course.

Hope you're having a great week!♥

Jenny said...

LOL at the tantrum face!

Looks like so much fun~ Beautiful girls

Don't you love the stalling? Riley is constantly asking me for more kisses and hugs...how can I say no? *sigh*

Excellent pics of all of your beautiful girls.

Happy Wednesday!
What fabulous photos. Your routine sounds similar to ours. Though it sometimes takes forever to get everyone to bed. I think those are the moments I will miss the most when the kiddos are grown.
Have a fabulous day!

Sounds about the same. Bedtime is always interesting and never the same around here. Cute pictures.

So fun, what a great routine! We love Judy Moody too!!

This is one of the sweetest posts I have ever seen!! =) I wish I had taken a little pictorial of our nighttime routine back in the day! Adorable!

We do the tickle monster to get them up the stairs. You know, I'm the tickle monster and they run away from me screaming...it's pretty good! Then once in bed we do prayers, blow a kiss to Jesus and Mary, and "Cuddle Cuddle Kiss Kiss". Lights out, and time for me and the hubs begins :)
