Bed Time Routines



A routine provides so many benefits for the children, especially young children.  Here is how we do it:

Bed time routine starts around 8:00.
  • (Baths every other day or nightly if needed)
  • Clean up house, including bedrooms
  • Pajamas
  • Brush teeth.
  • Wash faces (if donít bathe)
  • Read scriptures all together in family room.
  • Review following dayís activities
  • Family prayer, also in family room
  • Family hug & family cheer
  • Be sure everyone goes potty
  • Tuck each into bed, (check on each saying personal prayers. They love to chat about anything & everything before sleeping/or to stay up later/ or maybe they just like the individual attention.  What ever the reason this is my favorite part!  Enjoy!)
  • no bedroom or bathroom lights on, doors open or closed as they want it. Nightlights are automatic.

9:00 pm or so: Heads on pillows & lights out.  Theyíll whisper & giggle, but I think its sweet & let them, as long as we canít hear them from the kitchen, older siblings can sleep through it..

Here is a great little list for getting that bedtime routine set up: Sleep remedies and sleep tips for children

Your Shopping List

Ya, ya, I know what you are thinkin, "why do I need to read about a shopping list?"  Because you want to spend LESS time in the grocery store, LESS energy, have LESS stress, and spend LESS money.  Am I right?  Using a shopping list will help you get in and out of the store faster and spend less money because you are NOT making spontaneous purchases, but rather buying what your family actually needs.
