Bed Time Change

A few things are changing around here, and quite frankly I like the change.

I've forgotten how nice it is to have a "bed" time.  For so many years, I have always had little babies and little people that pretty much dictate when I would go to bed.  But no more!

Our, as in Chris and I have a bedtime of 10pm - where we are to be in our room and lights out in the rest of the house.  Which isn't a bad thing.  I find myself getting a lot more sleep - (and I've only done this the last two nights)  The girls have to be in their rooms by 9:30 and that gives them 30 minutes for reading until lights out at 10pm.   The younger kids are to be in their rooms with lights out at 8:30.  The baby by 8pm.

I think my kids need an example of what's important to me for them to do the right things.  They are resisting like crazy but with my husband and I both on board with this, I think things will change around behaviorally sooner rather than later.  And that things will be a lot more enjoyable to us as a family.
