Bedtime at Routines 'R Us...and a Random Beat Street Reference

B&W Zo and Dad Bedtime floor
A smooch for the smooch collector...Wait, does smooch have a letter "t" in it?

We're not so very used to routines around here but we're adjusting. The routine of late has been this...

Munch dinner with the family...

Kill some time...

Jump in the bath...

Naked time...

Play time with Mom & Dad...

Attempt at bed #1...

Cry a lot...

Attempt at bed #2...

Cry more...

Attempt at bed "ad nauseum"...


It works for us...but then it's all we really know. Thank God there are weekends to run amok and mucho plenty sporting events to distract us, otherwise the current routine might, you know, cramp our style a little.

Zedder is some serious fun during the post- naked floor play time...That sounds weird, I know.

I'm guessing that this bedtime stuff doesn't get much easier until they're, what? 16 or 17? And of course, by then they're going to bed only so that they can sneak back out again, right? Wait...are we reading the wrong books? I'm not reading anything...maybe I should be? I think I've got a copy of "The Catcher in the Rye" somewhere around here.

That's Mom and Zed doing their ritual bedtime dance...it's kinda like the Roxy scene in Beat Street...only better and with less Kangol and Puma...plenty of Grandmaster Flash though.

I love reading your blog. Bedtime is fantastically easy at our house and never takes longer than 10 minutes. Parenting is definitely more art than science, and even though I did buy some books, I haven't had a moment to read them (or the need...yet). :-D

The only piece of advice I can give you, is you will NEVER be short of parents telling you how to fix it, with what worked for them and their kid. And in the end, the thing is you figure out what works for you guys cause there's no miracle fix that worked for someone else that applies to everyone.

P.S. You need a broom to sweep up that Beat Street name drop!
