They always say that routines are important for children. Maybe this was just a coincidence, but tonight I was convinced. When it was time to put Jackson to bed, I forgot to do his bedtime routine.
After he's in his pjs - I walk him to Schuley and make her sit. Jackson waves as I say, "Night Night Schuley. I love you." Then Jackson blows her a kiss. We repeat this with Ruffles and then Daddy.
When I tried to put Jackson down without the routine, he was not interested AT ALL. I tried for about 10 mins to get him to settle down, and he wouldn't. After realizing my mistake, we went and said our goodnights.
After that - Jackson was asleep within two minutes.
Coincidence? I guess we'll never know.
