I think it’s important for children to ease into a nighttime routine with gentle calm and lulling quietude. A warm bath, books read in a soft voice, and then tender kisses before being tucked in under a cozy blanket, that’s how we do things in our house. Last night, Child Harbat got to play a role in getting Number Two calmed down for bed. The children had eaten dinner and the settling of nerves so the digestive process can operate in peace was foremost on my daughter’s mind as she transitioned her young brother into slumber mode. Take a deep breath, sit back, and be careful you don’t drift off to dreamland as you see this video of our nighttime calm-down ritual.
