Weird title right? Let me explain...
So our bedtime routine for the boys every night is for Ken and me to pair off with one of them. We read four books, sing some songs and lie down with them.
It is a great routine that we all love. The problem here is that both Ken and I wind up passing out in their beds. We try to stay awake but inevitably we fall asleep with them.
I usually wind up waking up around 11:30pm, go find Ken, wake him and we both stumble into bed. Now there are a few problems with this scenario...
- We lose the few hours at night we have to get stuff done.
- The boys have become accustom to us being there to go to sleep.
The one great thing about this scenario is that Ken and I get snuggle time with Cooper and Cole. We love that time and realize how precious that time is and how quickly it will go.
I guess we are trying to take in as much time with the boys as we can, even if that time is when they (we) are asleep. That could be our reasoning, or it could be that we are so exhausted that we are just passing out.
So what do you think? Is it OK that we pass out with the boys every night? Any suggestions on how to break this routine, or should we?
