Aaaahh bedtime! It can be the most heavenly and the most devilish words to parents. For us the word bedtime was the devil reincarnated up until about 6 months ago. We had moved into a new home and the boys were not dealing with the change well. It was hard for them to get settled in their new space and bedtime happened around 11:30 at night and everyone would just fall where they would drop! It was rough stuff, especially because I really wanted to get some ‘me’ after bedtime.
I finally broke down one night after too many almost nervous breakdowns caused from sleep deprivation, and decided that a routine bedtime was exactly what we needed! I found that books and cozy bedding were the solution to the chaos that was bedtime. I am happy to say we can get the boys down for bed WHEREVER we are... even our own backyard! I finally understand why moms want to get their babies up from bed after they have fallen asleep just to cuddle them. It really is a bittersweet time of day, but really sweet when you finally have bedtime figured out!
I always love the week of Mother’s Day because each year my husband pulls out the tent and we have a little backyard getaway. It’s perfect because it’s warm enough to spend the night with the kids-especially cuddled in The Company Store goodies, it lets us getaway without having to pack bags, and it allows us to still stick to our bedtime routine- plus it’s the first sign (for our family) that summer is near. The boys love it, I love it...the dogs even love it! Plus if you’re like me sweet gestures, like taking the time and setting up the tent filled with the cutest products from The Company Store, is the best gift I could ask for!
This year along with the products from The Company Store, we bought a new book which always makes everyone excited; especially when it’s one we love so much we can read over and over again; Ones that can bring a tear to my eyes, and help me to realize that no matter how draining this motherhood journey can be there’s nowhere else in the world I would want to be. It just makes the chaos that is bedtime worth it and the cozy cuddles that much more sweet.

What wonders you choose to see,
I will always belong right here with you,
And you’ll always belong with me”
