I've been super tired lately, and wondering to myself, why don't I follow these bedtime routine rituals myself! I think I would be a much happier well slept person if I would stick to a routine. Lately, I'm erratic. Bedtimes change nightly, some nights I read, sometimes a movie or a phone call with family, or sometimes I craft too late. I've noticed on nights when I'm in bed by 10, I feel so much better the next day, alert and not so moody. My patience increases and I'm just a better person all around.
So, I'm going to try real hard to abide my bedtime routines this week for myself, and add back in reading a book or taking a nice long bath to relax. How about you all? What bedtime routines do you have in your home? What books are you reading at night these days?
PS - Next week, I'm headed to Seattle for work, and man oh man I'm worried about my sleep! The jet lag! My routine will be all whacked up, but hopefully I can get back in the groove quickly when I return. Any tips on places to eat or shop downtown in Seattle? I only have a few nights, but would love to hear your recommendations.
PS again - I 'll have to post more about our bedtime story rituals at some point. Cooper really enjoys me telling him stories of when I was naughty or got in trouble as a kid, but I'm running out of those quickly.
