Why I Love Bedtime

Why I Love Bedtime

Tucking in my tween is a wonderful time for

Affirming him

Showing physical affection

Taking turns talking sharing gratitudes

Saying ‘I love You.”

Listening to feelings, plans, ideas

Laughing at silly things

Relaxing in comfort

Reading a book together

Complimenting a positive choice

Giving personal attention

Laughing at jokes

Reinforcing bedtime

Smelling tooth paste breath

Arranging the pillows

Calming uncertainty

Welcoming quiet

Falling asleep talking

Telling stories

Creating connection

Solving riddles

Expressing curiosity

Ending each day peacefully, and with hope for tomorrow
