Summer is in full swing and bedtimes have flown out the window.
During the school year, M began her bedtime routine at about 8pm. By 9pm, all of us were in bed and the kids were usually sleeping.
That meant they woke up relatively early, even on the weekends.
Once summer hit, that routine just ended. Bedtime has started around 10pm, and there are times M won’t sleep until almost midnight!
It’s not like I wanted it to be that way.
We went on vacation to Las Vegas about two weeks ago (hence the blog silence), and bedtimes don’t really exist on vacation…
The one thing about late bedtimes means that the girls are sleeping in until about 9:30am now. It’s pretty nice. Sleeping in feels nice. It’s just that simple.
Honestly, I don’t like the super late bedtimes for the girls. I’ve been trying to get the bedtime routine started about 9:30pm, but she’s just not used to it yet. She’ll be in bed by 10pm. Then she’s tossing and turning until almost midnight!
She’s lucky that she gets to sleep in!
I’m hoping that I can start getting her on an earlier bedtime again.
But it’s summer! There is just too much to do!
