bedtime

 I thought I might share our bedtime routine. Starting with bathtime!
We still bath them separately because on the occasions when we try to bath both boys together they literally nearly drown each other. 

So lets start with Isaac. 

He absolutely loves being in the bath! He often requests a story to be read while he floats about...

He's really started to imagine and play rather than just splash about... 
'Here fishy fishy...' 
It's times like these I remember how much fun I used to have in the bath when I was a kid. I think I was usually a beautiful mermaid or something. And everybody does the whole Santa beard thing with bubbles right? These days having a bath is a luxury I rarely have time for and if I do have time I haven't got the energy to get it all ready. But remember how much fun it used to be?

Now its Lucas's turn. He's still in splash as much as possible phase. 
As you can see he also loves bath time!

Momentary break in splashing to look at toys...

 And were back to the splashing...

Just in case you missed it...

Then its time to brush our teeth...

Get dry. Lucas is already flagging probably as a result of excess splashing...


Story time...

Milk for one little man...

Lastly its time for songs and kisses goodnight.

Aw they are so precious especially when they are asleep! So then we close the door and crawl down stairs to relax. Because quite frankly putting two little boys to bed is exhausting especially when hubby is away on a ski trip for the week (which he is this week). 


Night Night every one. Sleep tight. Don't let the bed bugs bite.

  2. I used to pretend I was a mermaid in the bath, too! Sebastian hates baths, I don't understand it since he loves swimming so much. When we finally convince him to take one without fighting us, it only lasts about five minutes before he starts crying for his towel because he wants out. We've bought toys to try and entice him to play, but they don't work. Well, the bath crayons & markers worked for a while but as soon as he gets the tub covered in scribbles he wants out again. Le sigh.
