Cuddle with your Peeps
Posted By Jessica Fisher On October 9, 2012 @ 11:04 am In Memory Making,Parenting and Family | 3 Comments
Forgive the blurry Instagram photo. It’s what happens when it’s late at night and you’re not using a flash. This is me and my girls, following a new ritual.
In an effort to get myself to bed earlier, I’ve invited the kids to come tuck me in.
I realized that I was neglecting making the rounds because I was so tired by the time the kids’ bedtime rolled around. Some of them are big enough to put themselves to bed. But, I didn’t like that trend of not really wishing them all good night.
So, I started going to bed earlier and inviting them to come to me to wish me good night.
It hasn’t worked out too well to make this a nightly thing, but a couple times a week to cuddle and talk about the day is working really well. And I’m trying to be good about making the rounds on the other nights, too.
How we end the day matters and sets the tone for a good night’s sleep — and a better tomorrow.
The days are long, but the years are short. I don’t want to miss them! For more short and sweet ideas on how to stop and smell the roses, to enjoy the little things in life, check out my 31 Days to Smell the Roses series .
