With back to school in just two weeks, getting on a sleep routine has never been more important. Somewhere around May when summer hits, we become super lackadaisical with bedtime.
- Staying up past normal time? No big deal.
- Movie running late? Not a problem.
- Late night swim at our pool? We got this.
Then August happens. It sneaks up on us so quick we do the required “Where did summer go?” whine and realize the time is now. Get the kids back in shape or we will all be worse for the wear come the first days of school.
Truthfully sleep is an important part of everyone’s day and mood around here. More work gets done, more chores are done, and our ability to interact with each other is just better when we all get a great amount of sleep. And getting to that sleep? Well, it can be quite a chore itself. Personally, I rely on routine to get us all through the evening. Keeping my 4 year old and 11 year old on task can be quite a challenge some days and with everyone knowing what to expect each evening, our frustration can be low.
