Bedtime Routine

Just so I don't forget I want to list our bedtime routine with Cooper. After books, devotional, and prayer he wants me to carry him into bed. I pray again, he prays. I give him a kiss to rub in and a kiss for his pocket. He gives me a kiss to rub in and for my pocket. He tells me his favorite thing for the day and I tell him mine. He tells me what Steve's and Cameron's favorite things were. I tickle his back. He gives me 3 or 4 hugs, tells me if I need anything he will be right there, and tells me to tell Steve that as well. Finally, I get to walk out the door while he is still talking to me and telling me these things. If I don't say goodnight and walk out he will have me in there for another half hour. I love it!

Aww! I love this. Our bedtime routine is a lot like this and it is my favorite time of the day. Great idea to write it all down!

Funny. Sounds like Hope. She is literally still talking when I walk out the door, and that's after we've talked for 10 minutes, I have to walk out or I would be there all night. Kids are great. Exhausting, but great :-)

My boys talk as I am walking out the door too. Bed time routines are so special. I still remember mine from when i was little!
