Is there a special ritual or thing you do with each of your children?

Justin and I cuddle each night before he goes to bed. We have started a new thing now that I ask him what was the worst part of his day, then what was his favorite part of the day. I really enjoy the time and I think it will keep our line of communication open too.

When Mattie is starting to show the signs of being ready to go down for the night, I bring him in room and rock him to sleep and sing a little song I made up when Justin was a baby. Just a simple lullaby how much I love him. Justin knows that I sing it to Mattie now.

I have a theory that you need to be very good to your children because they choose your nursing home!!

The boys and I have quiet time before Cam goes to bed where we all share in reading stories and talking about our day; what we did, what we liked, disliked, etc. And somedays we also have rowdier times during the day where we play silly games and run around outside. Okay, I don't actually run now, I waddle after the boys in an attempt at tag! And as a family we love to play board and video games together too!

I have plenty of snuggle time with my 20 month old but my 10 year old kinda keeps to himself. We do play battleship about once and week and he loves it.
