I usually do the bedtimes around here...the kids and I figured out a system that works for us all whilst D was away travelling so much, and since we're in the groove and have a nice little rhythm going, it's usually just easier for me to do it. But sometimes I do cherish a little slice of time when someone else can be in charge, and having D do bedtime is quite a special treat for all concerned.
These three always have so much fun together that sometimes bedtime takes on a whole new life of its own...
Tonight Cole and Immy inducted their Daddy into their current favourite game, parents and babies.
D was the baby, Cole and Imogen his adoring mama and daddy. They cooed at him, showed him how to suck his thumb, gave a dance party performance, and finally, took him to bed, gleefully leading him as he walked down the hallway on his knees.
Then they tucked him in to Immy's bed, where our little Mama proceeded to read him a bedtime story.
Of course, about 30 seconds after that all manner of bedlam and mischievous mayhem broke out, and the fits of giggles could still be heard a full 45 minutes later.
I wonder how long it will take for those little parentals to get to sleep, and whether I'll find their baby asleep and them still going strong!!
