Home Rhythms: Bedtime
We're working on bedtime so much harder than we used to. Z seems to really struggle with fears, and we're doing our best to adjust our routines to become much more relaxing and connected. We find a lot of help from Nicole's suggestions on her own wonderful blog, Frontier Dreams. Soon to come is an Owl Bedtime Rhythm Chart from A Kid's Day. We'll refer to that to keep us all focused (especially with school resuming all too soon). Snoedels to help them have that soft, scented presence with them. We use lavender on them. Sleep Fairy and a set of audio bedtime stories by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. Becky Kelly does some beautiful art featuring children, fairies, little animals etc. Here are two prints that we'll try to incorporate into what we look at during our lulling times. Her shop has adorable cards etc.
