Our evening bedtime routine is my favorite time of the day because after a long day at the office this is where I get to hear about my boys day and wind down with some quality snuggle time. For us bedtime has a rhythm accompanied by some of our favorite products to make the time together really special.
Bath Time: Our bedtime route starts with a fun play bath filled with Honest Company bubble bath, shampoo and conditioner. After mountains of bubbles, splashes of joy and giggles we brush our teeth and head off for bed.
Pajamas: Our favorite Pajama are Hanna Anderssons. We have numerous pairs in cute and fun prints. I love Hanna pajamas because they are incredibly soft and fun. I buy Hanna pajamas two sizes bigger than my boys and they last up to three years as the kids grow. We top our pajamas with a cozy robe and cute slippers to ensure maximum warmth.
Calming Aroma: I am a firm believer in the benefits of essential oils. I found this beautiful marble one from Saje called the "armonabreeze" that fits well into the style of my home. Use a couple drops of the "Aroma Fairy" blend to settle your little ones before bedtime. The child-friendly blend will bring a sense of calm into your lively home and set the stage for blissful sleep.
Story Time: Before bed each one of my boys gets to pick a book to ready. We like to all cozy up with our favorite "stuffs" and a warm blanket as I ready to them and my oldest son Nicholas (6) reads to me. Some of our favorite books right now are "if you give a pig a pancake" and "Poke-a-Dot 10 Little Monkeys." If you have a chid like my little Henry (3) who has trouble sitting still for story time a book like the "Poke-a-Dot" series is a great option; this series allows the kids to "pop" plastic bubbles on each page keeping them engaged in the story.
