Who's Going to Put Her to Bed?
Okay, I need to know--Who puts your children to bed every night? Is it mom or dad? Does one person take one kid and the other take another? In our house, we have two daughters, ages nearly 5 and nearly 2. Mom (that is me) stays home with the children and home-schools our oldest for Kindergarten. Right now since my husband is really busy with school (he is a teacher), the play (he is the assistant director), and his seminary class, I am making dinner, cleaning up from dinner, bathing both kids, and putting the younger one to bed-- stories, songs, the whole bit. I must say that by the end of that day (especially if it is a soccer night), I am just a bit overwhelmed and putting our oldest to bed and going through the whole story, song routine again is hard for me. For a little while my husband was putting her to bed, but now he DOES have a lot going on, so.... Who is going to put her to bed? I guess I could read to both of them at once, but they kind of like different books right now since they are three years apart. What does your end-of-the-day routine look like? Any ideas?
