We had tea together tonight and washed the pots then went up to start bedtime mommy was suited and booted and ready to go to book club (even though “there is no book club”…? lol
I bathed Reagan and had some fun splashing and playing the silly games we play every night and mommy said goodnight and kissed Reagan and left us to it. When she left we carried on as we always do with washing hair cleaning teeth a bit more play and then we get wrapped in a warm bath towel and go to her bedroom and even without mommy it all just fallsReagan knows the routine and accepts that it’s how it is…always.
I read her a story every night and she lays in her cot watching me explain the words I saying pointing out the characters and situations in the illustrations within the book as her eyelids become heavier. Once the book is finished I get up switch the light off and return to her brush her face and hair telling her I love her and night night then leave the room. Reagan just accepts this as the end of the day and quietly drifts off to sleep as she did tonight.
We are aware that the imminent arrival of Linc will upset this routine but I reckon Jamie will be mindful from the offset when he will be ready for the routine (she started Reagan on a routine after 7 weeks and I have just told you all the benefits of that) I accept we are 50-50 in the parenting of our children but I have to admit I follow Jamie’s lead on most sibling related issues because sh is ‘mostly right’.
It will be a big change to introduce another person into our lives and I know it will take time to get back to where we are right now but I can’t frickin’ (as Jamie says) wait…although the sleepless nights are a bit of a worry lol
