#THEBEDTIMETAG

Lee, from the brilliant blog Dad Download, nominated me for #TheBedtimeTag. A chain blogger nomination type thingy... The questions are around your bedtime routine, i answer the questions below!

1. Describe your usual bedtime routine.

We love a routine in this house, so once our son is in bed every day by7-7:30pm. Then it's usually workout time followed by a shower followed by dinner at about half 8. Once we've eaten and tidied up we might stick on the latest episode from a box set we're watching or maybe i'll write, read, scan social media or just listen to music and catch up. My husband loves to draw so he will often be at the table putting the finishing touches to a masterpiece! We're usually in bed by 11pm. If I go any earlier I just lay awake. 

2. What are your favourite pyjamas?

I have more 'lounge wear' like sweats and a baggy jumper that I wear after showering to chill in in the evening. 

3. What is your current bedtime reading?

'The happiest kids in the world' by Rina Mae Acosta and Michele Hutchison. So far i love it. It's all about raising children the Dutch way... which i feel i do a lot of myself actually anyway.

4. What would I find on your bedside table?

A lamp, a glass of water, my book, my phone and a framed photo of my little family. 

5. What scent makes you sleepy?

Mmm I don't really need a scent to fall asleep. I just love nice, clean sheets.

6. What is your usual bedtime and wake-up time?

11pm-6:30am. It's built in me after years of working and my son beautifully fits into the 6:30 wake up routine! 

7. What are your top three bedtime products?

A glass of water, moisturiser and... that's about it! 

8. What is your most common sleeping position?

Definitely foetal position laying on my right hand side. 

9. Do you have anything you like to take to bed with you?

No! Just me (and my man). No distractions on the bed/bedroom! I'm not even allowed a TV in the bedroom!

10. What is your worst bedtime habit?

I think I'm pretty lucky that I more often than not fall asleep within 20 minutes and don't wake at all in the night... so i have no opportunity for bad habits. But maybe snoozing my alarm in the morning if my toddler isn't awake yet. Never a good idea when you all have to get ready to get out the door! 

Right! Who shall i nominate? I really love seeing the updates from LesBeMums (Kate) at the moment, such a beautiful LGBT family. I would also like to nominate the lovely duo from The Blended Parent Network, David Shaul (DadvWorld) and Luke Woodhouse (The Woodhouse Life) to share their bedtime tag! You're up!!
