Our Favorite Bedtime Stories

Putting the kids down for bed can be a struggle. At times, a bit impossible! To ease the process, bedtime stories are a must. Not only do they soothe my little ones and help them unwind but it’s also the perfect way to spend quality time together after a busy day.

Since we’ve made it our routine, they look forward to it! Scarlett isn’t quite old enough yet so Brooks’ is normally assigned “book duty.” Once the books are picked we cuddle in, dive into a story (or three!) and drift off to dream land. I have to admit—our bedtime reading is definitely soothing for me, too. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve fallen asleep in Brooks’ bed after closing the final page!
