Our Bedtime Books #PositivismoBy
I’ve shared earlier a bit about our bedtime routine and that at times, there hasn’t been much of a routine. Having two kiddos in school has helped us getting in to a routine and also the mandatory getting 20 minutes of reading per day. I like to read stories to my kiddos before bed, but making sure they are getting almost half an hour of reading has meant, we’ve had to add to our collection.
I shared with you last week about Otros Cuentos and their free downloadable books. The kids have loved reading the books and we’ve read every story in both in English and Spanish. It’s allowed us to get 20 minutes in and helps ease us the kiddos into a goodnight sleep.
I love the California Milk Processors initiative that encourages parents and kiddos to help get a great night sleep and allow the little ones to be more alert and in our home, also in a better mood! I don’t like grumpy kiddos in the morning and I know when they didn’t get enough sleep. In our family 11 hours seems to be the magic number for my kids. Anything less than that and they are grumpy, sleepy and our mornings are not very pleasant. That’s why I’m making sure that we are sticking to our schedule and our bedtime routines.
