a bedtime routine you MUST do with the kids before they'll settle in for sleep?

At 830 we start getting quiet. I read Annika a short book. Change her diaper. At 9 we go upstairs and brush our teeth and then sit in the rocker and read with the lights dimmed. After the quiet book I rock her and then have her in her bed. She's gotten very good at going to sleep on her own.

Mattie likes to cuddle when he is tired. I usually take him to his room and rock him until he is almost asleep and then put him in his crib and turn on his musical aquariam. He smiles back and holds his blankie and I say "Sweet Dreams, I Love You" and then leave. Justin likes to cuddle in my bed. We talk about the best and worst parts of our day and do our prayers. Lately he likes to play spelling bee, I think it might be just so he doesn't have to go to sleep right away.

The boys must have a snack, get pjs on in Cam's case, brush teeth, and have story/cuddle time. Branden also really likes to chat about EVERYTHING that happened in his day right before lights out. I'm so on to him!

I use to do the same thing with my mom when it came to bedtime. I'm sure mine is coming with Annika just give her time.
