Bed time story {The Ordinary Moments} #28

This week I’m heading back inside for our ordinary moments after a few weeks over sharing some of our outdoor ordinary moments.

Bed time story

I’ve always loved our bed time routine for Arthur. Something that’s been consistent for him since he was tiny. It’s amazing really how it gives him a signal that it’s the end of the day and time to go to sleep.

We always used to snuggle up all together while Arthur had his milk, then do his story before we put him into bed. Now he’s 16 months old and running around all over the place, we’ve made a bit of a change. Arthur was getting distracted by anything and wandering off!!

So now what happens is that Arthur has his milk, his teeth cleaned and then he puts himself into bed for story time. We are really enjoying this new change. Even though we are not getting full on snuggles, Arthur takes turns going from me to Mark giving us a cuddle and a kiss while we read a story.

With Mark being at work all day, this is a true highlight for his day. This lovely time of day with us all together.

We are in love with The Gruffalo in this house, in fact, all of Julia Donaldson’s books, so these definitely dominate the bed time story choices! After this we do Arthur’s lullaby, the same we’ve done since he was ever so small. Then it’s off to the land of nod for our little guy!! A little ordinary moment for us, one that I’m sure is similar for families all over the world. I like that although we live somewhere very different there are lots of moments in our day that would be very similar wherever we lived in the world!
