Hey friends! Mother’s Day is around the corner. Establishing a routine has always been hard for me. I partnered with The Company Store to talk about our routine. We are partnering with their campaign, Why is bedtime so special to you? One things for sure and that is my bedtime routine with Harper Grace!
The world could be chaos and the house in huge disarray but Harper is guaranteed a good teeth brushing and a bedtime story! I remember all the nights my parents took the time to read to me and it was so important. It made me feel special. I want Harper to feel the same way. I want her to look back and see the love around her.
We cuddled up with our favorite vintage book. It’s called My Goodnight Book and I read this same book as a child. We love it. There are several books we have read the past five years but this one is our favorite. On a perfect night, dinner is homemade and I run Harper’s bath afterwards. She plays while I clean up and then she washes her face and brushes her teeth. Sometimes I help her get ready for bed but a lot of the times Miss Independent wants to do it all herself! We then read a bedtime story and say our prayers. Other times we might be in a hurry but we still make time for brushing teeth, bedtime stories and sharing our gratitude!
Speaking of gratitude, I love for us to say at least three things we are grateful for that day. This opens up other conversations and she can talk about anything that could be bothering her or whatever she feels like saying. I love her so much.
Although, no bedtime routine is perfect. We are all doing our best as Mothers. Raising our littles is a big job.
It's worth every minute though.
I am blessed with this opportunity to call her my daughter. Happy Mother’s Day mamas! You make the world go round. Xx
I would love for you to take a second to read the other stories mamas are sharing here and I would love to hear your story too! I am blessed with this opportunity to call her my daughter. Happy Mother’s Day mamas! You make the world go round. Xx
Big thank you to The Company Store for partnering with us on this post and for creating gorgeous sustainable home decorations that I can share with my family.
