Confession: We have a pretty crappy bedtime routine.
I seem to read everywhere that a bedtime routine is important: “bath, bottle, book, song, bed.” Well, we do a bathe, feed, sleep routine. Call me a bad mom, but I don’t read a book to my kid every night. I don’t sing to her every night either. I’m tired by this point. I can’t form a complete sentence! All I am focused on is bathing her, feeding her, and getting her to sleep so I can get stuff done. Do you know how hard it is to sew or craft while baby is awake?
I feel guilty about it sometimes because I’m already afraid that baby girl will be behind all the other kids (irrational and random mama paranoia).
Then I think… really, how important is it anyway?
