Day Two: What is your bedtime reading ritual?
I try to have one, but it is impossible. I hate to blame it on my situation again, but I have five kids. In my dream life, everyone cleans up after dinner, washes up, brushes their teeth, gets into pjs, and is ready for bed by 8 PM without me having to tell everyone six times what to do next. Then we read a few books together, and all children are in bed by 8:30. Afterward, I get to put my feet up and read for an hour or two or three.
But it doesn't happen like that. I am grateful if I even have energy left to read with my kids at the end of the day, if we even make it that far.
BTW, that is why I try to find time to read during the day while they are playing - or why I don't mind visits to the doctor's office. Someday I hope to have more energy to read at bedtime.
What about you: do you read before bedtime?
