Bedtime Rituals

Do you have a bedtime ritual?  Something that you do every night before Mr. Sandman visits you?  Me being a piggy – Ireally demand a schedule.  When my schedule is off, so is my cute little personality – snorts!.  For instance, every night mom starts putting me to bed around 8:30pm.  I say start because I have a routine here at the Hotel Thompson.

At 8:30pm, mom tells me it’s time for bed.  We go into the kitchen to get my bedtime snack and a drink of water.

At 8:45pm, I’ll start wobbling down the hall to my bedroom.  I’ll take care of my ‘business’ and get into my toddler bed.

At 9:00pm, mom com20130601-001219.jpges into my bedroom to tuck me into bed and kiss me good night.  Sometimes she tells me a story.  Sometimes she sings to me and pets my back until I fall asleep.  Other times, she sets the timer on my television so I can watch one of my favorite shows for a while before I fall asleep.

At 9:15pm, mom puts Houdini to bed.  He’s not one for bedtime stories – he thinks he’s too big for that.  Can you believe it?  So, she rocks him and puts his onsie jammies on and tucks him in for the night.  Rotten little guy – rolls piggy eyes and snorts with laughter.

At 9:30pm, mom and dad go to bed.  Mouse Girl and Hemi follow them cause they sleep in their room on the big bed.  Hemi snuggles right between mom/dad and has to touch both of them.  Mouse Girl sleeps at the bottom of the bed and stretches as far as she can between mom/dad’s feet.

So, do you have a bedtime ritual?

Funny Piggy Song

Every once in a while, I just can’t sleep at night.  I’m not sure what it is.  Mr. Sandman skips the Hotel Thompson and we’re all stuck watching television and playing on the computers until wee early in the morning hours.  Which isn’t bad for the weekend but during a week night, it hits mommy kind of hard.

Last night was one of those nights.  None of us could sleep.  We all got back up and started watching info commercials on the television and surfing the net.  I’ll tell you something.  Mom/dad came across a video and was laughing so hard at 3AM that I thought the neighbors were going to call the police department on us for sure.

I’m not sure what language the song is being sung but it’s cute and catchy.  What had mom/dad laughing was the video. I don’t get it.  Mom watched the video first and almost fell off the sofa laughing.  Hey, she nearly knocked me on the floor and I was sitting right beside her.  Then she had to show it to daddy who started laughing as well.  Heck, I think those pesky purr things were laughing too.  I don’t know what the big deal was all about.  Daddy asked mom, “Who does that remind you of?”  Everyone turned and looked at me.  What?  I don’t get it.  You?
