And do you want to know the best part about this little routine of ours?? Our kids think they are pulling one over on us! We say our good-nights, turn off lights, and head downstairs only to hear footsteps a few minutes later. They sneak out of bed, flick on their lights, and return to their bed with a book. Or in some cases, a gigantic pile of books. They are sneaking in extra reading time.
WhenSchizz and I head upstairs for the night, we are met with illuminated doorways at the end of a dark hall. We open the door to find our children, sleeping soundly, with books everywhere.
