How can you speed up your kid’s bedtime routine so they go to bed earlier?
It’s getting late. I’m getting tired. My toddler needs to sleep. But he wants to stick to his bedtime routine and won’t skip bedtime stories. Plus, he has to pick the thickest book! So what do I do as a smart mom to speed up bedtime routine? I summarize paragraphs and skip pages. It’s true! I shorten up their bedtime stories, summarize and paraphrase long paragraphs and call it a night, lol. Sometimes my toddler notices and picks another book. But in a lot of cases, if he chose a thick book, skipping and flying through pages become not noticeable and can greatly expedite the process. Cheers.
