Bedtime Routines

Hey guys! I had a different bedtime last night than usual, and it got me thinking and now I'm super curious. Does anyone have a bedtime routine? What's it look like?

Normally, Daddy and I go to bed at the same time. He tucks me, and then crawls into bed with me. We go through kisses (lips, nose, forehead, and my stuffie- Pippa). Then it's 'I love you' and 'sweet dreams.' And then lights out. Last night was a little different. I'm currently working two jobs and I had to be up super early yesterday (5:15 am  O.o), so by 9:30 last night, I was barely awake. Instead of the usual bedtime routine, Daddy tucked me in, went through kisses and good-nights, turned off my light and then went back downstairs to continue what he was doing on the computer.

 

It wasn't a bad bedtime or anything, just a little different than usual. It got me to thinking this morning about the differences and now I'm curious about what other littles bedtime routines are like :)

i have a bedtime routine!


 


my alarm goes off for my meds at 10 pm, so that's when we go upstairs.


the giant's other partner, butterfly, stays with us during the week, so he'll go + tuck her in first (unless he's sleeping with her that night), 


while i shower/get ready for bed.


i wash my face (when i remember. >_>) + brush my teeth + put coconut oil on my scar. 


then, we read silently in bed together for about a half hour, + then we read aloud together before shutting off the light.

I would say my bedtime routine is pretty standard! My Daddy does not let me stay up past 4AM(The reason why it's so late is because we both work late jobs, we get outta work between 12AM-1AM).

 

Once I am ready for bed(which can be anywhere between when we get home from work to 4AM), he watches me take my baby prevention pills(that's what we call them heh..) that way I don't forget. He reminds me of potty time then he brushes my hair and as he does that I wash my face. After that we both brush our teeth, I pick a song and we have to brush our teeth to the entire song, so we do a lot of dancing and goofing off too heh...

 

Then we finally get to bed! He tucks me in, turns on Game Grumps on the TV, he asks me which stuffy gets to sleep with me tonight(Last night I picked Yoshi!!). We do kisses which goes in the order of forehead, nose, lips. 

 

Sometimes I won't be tired and be really silly and goofy, but sometimes I will fall right asleep. Those nights that I fall right asleep and my Daddy can't sleep, I know Daddy goes to play video games and stuff! Which is fine because it's Daddy's own schedule!

 

Sorry this was so elongated! But this is my normal bedtime routine! c: ^^

My bedtime routine (when I do it) is pretty simple. I brush, floss, and rinse my teeth and mouth. Then I wash my face with a facial brush, then I use noxema cream, then I brush my hair. Then I stretch my legs, and Daddy goes through the checklist with me to make sure I did everything, then I go to sleep!

Daddy and I turn off the TV around 8:30pm. We go upstairs and brush our teeth, floss etc. We get in bed and cuddle or just talk until 9:30 is when we go to sleep

I think that depends on the rules you and your caregiver go by.

Personally, I think an earlier bedtime can be good after a punishment because I often get very exhausted (both physically and emotionally) but a lot of it depends on the circumstances.

The important thing about a bedtime routine is that you get settled down for sleeping and aftercare can get you in a nice relaxed state.
