Peace and quiet

When you have three kids who are four and younger, bedtime is one of the toughest times of the day.

Finn: Daddy, can you put Gray to bed first?

Me: It actually works better if we all read stories and sing songs together.

Finn: Noooo! She’s the worst at bedtime. I just want peace and quiet with you for my story time. I don’t want any loud noises or screaming or kicking. I just want for you to read the words and for me to peacefully listen.

Me: (laughing) Okay, buddy.

I guess bedtime is a little tough on all of us.
