It's 8am and all four of my kiddos are still sleeping. I've had 2 hours of quiet time and I have savored every second of it. But the downfall of them sleeping so late is that they give us such a hard time going to sleep at night. Last night it was so tough getting them all to bed. This frustrates C because, while I am a morning person and I like my quiet time in the morning, he is a night person and he prefers quiet time at night. And when the kids are up, it ain't quiet. During the school year, we start bedtime at 8pm (and I usually follow not too far behind) I don't want the summer to be a time of strict bedtimes and waking times, but we do need some semblance of routine.
Oh, I hear Ava coming now. She peeked around my door and said, "I been coming for you". Nothing makes me smile bigger than that freshly woken up face. So Sweet.
Okay, now I just got finished cleaning David after a nosebleed. Guess quiet time is over, let's get this day started.
What do your kids' bedtimes/routines look like during the summer??
