Kids - Fighting Bedtime
Wednesday, November 28, 2012
Why does it always seem like you have to battle them to go to bed and then once again in the morning to get them going? It gets so very tiring to always try to get them to bed at night. A typical night is:
Get home about 5:30-6:00pm and start dinner. While cooking, it's checking to make sure all homework is done. Once dinner is eaten, it's time bath time. The girls take a while and splash around for awhile until I call time to get out. They then decide it's time to get washed up.
It takes another 5 minutes to get that done. Once the girls are done, it's my son's turn. He's not too bad but we do have to remind him to use soap and shampoo (not sure if this is a boy thing or his autism kicking in).
We then fight to get them to be for the next 30-40 minutes. Hopefully we get them all to bed (not asleep, just in their beds) by 9pm. That doesn't even touch the morning. Maybe I'll talk about that tomorrow.
Maybe this is their attempt to help me exercise.
