"We Got This!"
Pro-tip#1 It's been said that being at home with the young ones can make
days feel like years and years feel like days.
At bedtime, make an agreement with yourself to cherish what sometimes feels like a daunting chore...bedtime. Tell yourself, It's not forever, it's just for now.
If you are calm, instead of preparing for a power struggle, you might find peace in the process
(I know, easier said then done, but give it a try).

Want to create ritual at bedtime?
Pro-tip #2 - Use "The Rose and the Thorn" practice of sharing what was the best part of your day and what was the hardest(not to be confused with the worst).
Light a little candle with your child, allow each person to share the rose and the thorn of the day, then have the child blow out the candle and crawl into bed. ZZZzzzz....
Pro-tip#3 Use the personal bedtime story written above ;)
or the Bedtime poem read out loud once young ones are tucked in.
