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

We recently had Sarah, from Julie Wylie Music come to run a wee music session at my daughter’s second birthday party. Zahara beamed from start to finish at the incredibly engaging songs and activities Sarah had them do. All of her wee friend’s Mums have since come back to me to tell me it made them realise how much their child loved music. I was moved to see how much my daughter loved her music party, and I loved being able to join in with her. I would thoroughly recommend Sarah to anyone in the future. Thank you, from Us.
