Bedtime is for Daddy. He's always taken charge of this routine and whether it's for my benefit or his own, I generally welcome the reprieve. The kids are bathed, jammies donned, teeth brushed and the "Storybook Train" arrives. They each climb on, the train does a couple laps and then pulls in to the story station where the three of them climb into Brendan's full size bed and the bedtime routine commences. A story from Daddy, a story from Brendan, a story from the Bible and a bedtime prayer. On the best of days I sit listening, unseen to the three of them, overwhelmed in my feelings of love and blessedness for my sweet little family.
