What is your bedtime reading ritual?
I don’t actually read before I go to bed, but I do read when putting my kid to bed.
Whenever it gets dark outside (around 8pm this time of year), I tell my kid to go pick out a book from his bookshelf and then I read him the book. If it is short, then I’ll grab another one. After that, I turn off the lights and stay with him until he falls asleep. While I wait for him to fall asleep, I read from my Kindle, since the light is soft enough not to bother him. Sometimes I stay until he falls asleep, but more often I’ll stay longer because I’m so engrossed in the book I’m reading…and by the time I get up my legs are all cramp and I have to pee.
I then go online and do my blogging/writing until my kid wakes up at 2am (he picked this time, not me!) and we spend the rest of the night sleeping in my bed. I’ve tried putting him back in his own bed, but usually I fall asleep before he does and his bed isn’t as comfortable as mine.
