An ode to bedtime…

I love my kids, but other mothers of small children will understand exactly what I mean when I say that bedtime is often my favourite part of the day. The moment I walk back into the lounge with the baby sleeping peacefully in his cot and his brother passed out in the other room, I feel a sense of elation and relief that we survived another day. I check my emails, do a quick workout from YouTube, pour myself a drink (the contents of glass very dependant on the kind of day we have had; therefore it is often wine), and collapse on the sofa. Oh yes, I like bedtime a lot.

To be fair, there are lots of other things I like about bedtime. It’s little boys in the cutest pyjamas, the smell of baby shampoo in their hair, the cuddles as we read a story, and the squeals of “I love you” as I pop the big one down in his cot (I taught him that; he has no idea what he’s saying, but I’m keen to keep it going). So to celebrate this simply wonderous time of day, I have compiled a selection of bedtime buys for boys below. Goodnight all.
