Do you check on your kids before you go to bed?

I only really do when we've been out for the night. The oldest kids used to complain that it woke them up so I quit doing it. When I was talking to my friends I realized I was a minority (mind you, their kids are younger), so I wondered about the rest of you.

Yep! Every night before I go to bed myself, I go into each room and give each kiddo a kiss on their foreheads. I even climb up the ladder to reach the kids that sleep on the top bunks....I can't go to sleep myself if I don't do this lol

both dh and I do it, and now Nolan expects it He doesn't wake, but he knows we come in to give him a kiss before bed, esp when dh comes home after they've gone to sleep. The best part of my day is going into both rooms and seeing my sleeping, quiet angels I'm also a nurse and its a habit to do regular rounds at night, lol

Lucky mother to five!

No to the baby because I don't want to wake him. If I need something from his room he "senses" me and will wake no matter how quiet I am

Yes to the other three. I mostly check to make sure they are asleep. My oldest loves to read so sometimes I will find his lamp on and he won't realize it's already midnight.

Yes...I usually peek in on them....I dont kiss them once they are asleep every night...but I do look in on them from the door...make sure they are breathing....and then turn off the hallway light which they insist should stay on! LOL

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

I check on them every night or I wouldn't be able to sleep. I usually end up having to cover them back up, move them from the end of the bed, or put a leg back on the bed LOL
