Every night we have a nice little family routine. It is funny how things become routine so quickly. Ever since Eva was born Allison and I have a great little prayer that we say. For the longest time we would say, “God Bless baby Eva”. When Eva turned two we started saying “God Bless Eva”. The thing is I had the muscle memory of saying “Baby Eva”, so I ended up saying “Beeba” so many times.
The funny thing is that Eva sets up some of these nightly routines too. One day she was holding onto Allison and shouted “Family Hug!” So, now the family hug is part of our nightly routine and I have to tell you, this is something I look forward to each night.
Eva continues to add little things to our nightly routine. When she gets her step stool she has to turn on the light in the bathroom, even if it is already on. She also now asks for a cup of water before bed and she needs a couple of stories before bed. The last thing is a rendition of the Mickey Mouse song and Paddington on the iPod and then she is out.
I think she is learning how to stall her bed time. What do you think?
I’m in no way complaining about the nightly routine because it is one of the best times of the day for me.
