Bedtime Books | Go to Sleep, Sheep! book GIVEAWAY

I don't know about you, but bedtime at our house can turn into complete chaos in an instant.  Take last night for example.  The evening was moving along normally.  I was planning out next year's curriculum so Warren took the four youngest fishing.  Emily was gone.  Nick was working on his truck and Amber was working.  The house was QUIET!!!

I was working at wrapping things up so I could get out the pajamas and put toothpaste on the toothbrushes when Peter came running in with a full bucket of Perch.  He and Maria were each telling stories about fish caught and lost and how they out-fished Dad...at the same time.  It was loud and completely disrupted my nice peaceful evening.

One look at the clock told me it was going to be a late night.  There were fish to clean, toys to pick up, and bodies to bathe.  All while the kiddos were hyped up and reliving every fish's story.

Warren cleaned each and every fish while Peter jabbered a mile a minute, the toys were put back onto the shelves and I filled the tub with kids and soap disregarding age and gender.  Everything got done.

The kids know we always read bedtime stories so they each had a pile of books, but I just wasn't up for it.  The clocked showed it was past 9:00 and I still had a few things on my to do list.  Joseph opened a book and said, "read, Mama."  So I described a few of the pictures and then it was prayer time and lights out.

But you know what, it didn't feel right.  I missed our snuggle time where they dishevel my bed blankets and whine about their book being read first.  A routine is a routine and life doesn't feel the same when that routine isn't followed.

Tonight we're going to sit down to a pile of books (even if it's late I keep telling myself).  One of the books we'll definitely read is Go to Sleep, Sheep!  It's a super cute book about sheep who just don't want to go to sleep.  They're not tired, they're hungry, they're thirsty, they want tuck in time.  Sound familiar???  As Mama urges them to go to sleep they meet up with all the other barnyard animals, too.  But, after they pray and snuggle in the hay they finally fall asleep.

We love farm books so this board book, although new, is already a favorite.  Maria especially loves it.
