Growing up I had my routines. I would eat the same breakfast based on the day of the week (bless my mom). I watched some of my favorite athletes and they seemed to have their routines. I would later serve a mission and found myself in routines. I find great comfort in routines but struggle to keep myself in them. As of late Melissa and I have begun a new routine. Here is our routine:
9 PM - Parker get his version of a late night snack
9:30 PM - We give Parker a bath
9:45 PM - Reading from the Book of Mormon (Parker has his own book in hand to not feel left out)
10 PM - Say night prayers, turn the humidifier on, turn the Primary hymns on
10:02 PM - Parker gets his "Night noogie" from dad (more to come later), kisses from mom and dad good night and mom lays Parker to bed.
10:07PM - Parker temporarily asleep while listening to the Primary hymns for the 10th time. Mom closes door behind her bidding her son "sweet dreams"
