Bedtime

Bedtime is a wonderfully predictable time of day in our house.

We figured out early on with our first girl Harper that having a steady rhythm to the end of our day made for a more peaceful (and successful) transition to sleep.

Once the girls are in their pjs they each chose a book to read. Then either their Dad or I reads them their books with time to stop to ask or answer questions- or deviate into chats about the day.

…Daddy’s story times are a lot longer than mummy’s.

After books are read, lights are out and prayers are said it’s song time. Our girls are lucky enough to have a whole selection of Lullabies written just for them but over time they have chosen one they like best of all- and we sing this every night with both girls singing along.

I love our bedtime routine as no matter what challenges the day has brought us – we end the day in calm harmony with one another.

Well…. most of the time!


Testimonials

I started taking my eldest child to Julie’s classes when she was 6 months old and are still attending now taking my third child, 8 years later. We love Julie’s warmth with children and her lessons are totally engaging with full parent and child involvement. The routine and structure of the lessons following the children’s interests and activities have taught me how to incorporate music and singing into our play at home. It’s neat to hear the children making up their own songs during their play and our youngest child’s first words were sung! The children have also loved dancing around the lounge to Julie’s CDs and they’re great for sing-a-longs in the car. Julie’s classes have also laid the foundation to help our eldest learn her first instruments, the viola and ukulele. We’re sure Julie’s classes have created a life long love of music for our children! Thank you Julie, we love coming to your classes!
