everyone has a little routine they do before they go to sleep. it might be something small, or something with multiple steps.
i tell Aa goodnight, then i look at Mr Bix and ask him “wanna go to bed?” his response is to run up the stairs & jump onto my bed. from there, it’s brush my teeth & wash my face. finally, i climb into bed and read for at least 30 minutes while Bix curls up & enjoys his chew bone.
it’s that perfect, quiet little moment where all of the excitement, stress, and whatnot of the day just melt away.
