I have 2 girls, ages 3 and 5. We have a bedtime routine...bath, brush hair and teeth, story then tuck in from daddy. Then they get up about 500 times. They share a room because they want to, and they really find comfort in having each other there. I am wondering how to get them to fall asleep before 9:30 when they go to bed at 8:30. My 5 y/o gets up at 7 to get ready for school and then I expect her to be tired the next evening but she's not. I have cut out naps for my 3 year old and she doesn't seem to be any extra tired either. I think I probably need to wear them out more but it's hard this time of year when we can't go outside. Any tips on how to get them to fall asleep at a decent time so our mornings aren't so terrible?
