We have a nightly ritual. Do you? I love it and hate it. Well, I don't hate it, but sometimes I don't feel like going through all the motions. Sometimes I wish I could just say, "Alright, off to bed!" and have them run off, not to be seen till the next morn, and I can do whatever I please for the night. But I realize that day will come, and these days won't stay. So every night, we go upstairs and brush our teeth, put on our pajamas, read at least three stories, and say our prayers. After that, I turn out the lights and they whine and they whine ;) And then I say, "If you are very good, and you keep your head on your pillow, I will stay here with you and knit." So they try to stay still, and sometimes forget, but mostly, they fall asleep to the click-click-clacking of my needles.
