Meals, Mayhem, and Miracle Memories (Part 2)
BQ (Before Quads) I envisioned tucking my little one into bed for the night by saying a prayer, giving a kiss goodnight, and perhaps reading a bedtime story.
Peaceful, Warm, Tender Moments.
Step into our reality and it resembles mayhem, a 20 minute chaos that leaves us breathless and spinning. A routine that includes hugs, kisses, stuffed animal swapping, jumping, joyful shouting, tears, songs with hand motions (Oh how I love a man who is secure enough in his masculinity to do hand motions!), and other various performances.
Here’s a sampling of our "Bedtime Greatest Hits". (I’ll have to check with itunes to see when these will be available for downloading. *wink*)
Side Note: I converted this video to black and white to reduce the symptoms of motion sickness while watching this clip.
It’s not exactly the bedtime routine that I pictured, but treasured moments, nonetheless.
Is your nightly routine mayhem or a soothing bliss? What are some ways that you keep it concise and peaceful?
