Your Children’s Bedtime/Stage Time Experiences Cartooned

My son’s bedtime routine is pretty standard. We put on his PJs and sleep-sack, read him some stories, say goodnight to his stuffed animals, kiss him goodnight, turn off the lights, and shut the door.



A switch is activated in his focused little, noodly brain.  He arises slowly from his back grasping the sides of his crib to pull himself upright.  He’s on his feet. It’s a wide stance. His chin begins to elevate. It’s pointing to the far corner of the ceiling. An arm follows. An index finger follows. He stands there posing for all (and none) to see.  Then bang. His index finger is pointing at his stuffed animals and it’s show-time.

About month ago I documented my son’s moves in a post entitled, “It’s Bedtime. It’s Stage Time!”. Thank you to those who checked it out. As promised here are some of your children’s bedtime/stage time antics:

Rylan has a few things he does but one phase he went through after he turned 2 was get out of bed and open and slam his door shut (and it’s a definite slam).spiderman bedslam

The other thing he does, is have a light show with his flashlight. Or he calls it his “flash”.flashlight child saved merchandise

The “climbing out of the crib and hanging off the side because I’m too scared to jump down” game. 1 foot drop

My daughter is 14 and we still have a heck of a time wrangling her at night!
