Mommy Cubed: BEDTIME

Mommy Blog Hoppers

Bedtime is a lot different here than in most households.  Until this school year, the Beanie Babies didn't go to bed until about 11:00pm.  CHILD ENDANGERMENT you scream?  Why?  They didn't wake up until 10:00am.  They didn't go to school or day care.  We didn't start their day until 10:00pm.  I had to get up and go to work, be there by 8:30-8:45am, but they had no where to go.

Now that the Big One is in Kindergarten, things have had to change.  She goes to mornings, which is 8:45-11:15am (I know, not much time).  Her school qualifies for free breakfast, so she gets to go to breakfast at school (this has been a blessing because she was throwing a fit about not being able to have lunch at school, and a bunch of her little Kindergarten friends have breakfast at school).  She has to be there at 8:20am for breakfast.  8:20am doesn't exactly mean 10:00am.  So, the Big One and Ms. Middle go to bed at 9:00/9:15pm now, and get woken up about 7:45am.

We have never really been a huge bedtime routine family, but we are getting better.
