Last night while I was laying in bed this overwhelming feeling came over me. I got tears in my eyes and had a feeling of dread in my stomach.
Jacob's childhood is passing me by so quickly and I don't feel like I am embracing each moment like I should be.
Some nights ... ok most nights ...
-we don't read before he falls asleep
-we don't pray to God and thank Him for all the good things in our lives
-we don't just cuddle up
-we don't eat dinner together (well we it around the coffee table)
I want to start doing things every night so when he grows up and has children of his own he can say "My mom and I prayed and read each and every night".
During the school year we barely made it home before it was time for him to get into bed. Now that it is summer he doesn't have to be asleep as early but I am still not taking advantage of the time we have together.
I want to get on a schedule with him. I want to make the most of the time we have together.
So, I am interested.
What kind of bedtime schedules do you have with your children?
