Longtime readers of this blog will know that Wilf and sleep were a combination that didn't really go together all that well. We spent around 18 months of torturous sleep deprivation and then things started to get a little easier. Now Wilf is a two and a half years old he sleeps through the night and bedtimes have been pretty easy for the past eight months or so. Tom actually has been doing the bedtime routine for the past year and I come up if he calls me for a cuddle. It's pretty lovely hearing them chatting (Wilf loves to draw out bedtime by 'chatting').
One of the loveliest things about listening to Tom put Wilf to bed is listening to him reading his bedtime story. Or rather his two or three bedtimes stories! We were given a lot of my old childhood stories by my parents so it's even more special to hear my son enjoy them!
This Saturday between 8-9 I will be hosting a twitter party with Betta Living all about bedtimes and bedtime stories. Saturday the 13th would have been Roald Dahl's birthday and what better a day to celebrate wonderful authors and children's stories! If you fancy it then do join us, you can find the chat under the hashtag #bettabedtimes and two tweeters will win £50 to spent on the Betta Living Roald Dahl collection.
Hope to see you there! x
