Every Wednesday I participate in Works For Me Wednesday. It’s a great way to meet new friends and get some great tips on everything from parenting, to cooking to crafting to well…everything! Even if you aren’t a blogger, I encourage you to go check out the link up. I’ve found some GREAT posts through this link up!
My kids go to bed early. Like really early. 7pm…sometimes 6:30pm. This gets some criticism from friends and family. We hear a lot of:
- If you put them to bed later they won’t get up so early (they are up by 7am…and no, if we put them to bed later, they simply get less sleep)
- You don’t get to do anything fun since you always have to be home before dark (we do make exceptions, but for the most part yes…we have kids and they are our priority. That includes them being well rested)
- You always have to leave family functions early because the kids are tired. We do not ask anyone to work their schedules around ours. So yes, sometimes we have to leave early because the party started at 6:30 and by 7:30 our kids are DONE
