Creating a Bedtime Routine for Big Kids

When you think of creating a bedtime routine you probably think of babies and toddlers right!?! Well, it’s just as important to create a nighttime routine for your big kids too. As I’m writing this post, my kids are in elementary school and middle school. Over time I’ve made adjustments to their routines and bedtimes according to their age or if they’re on school breaks.
