Goodnight, Sleep Tight!
By June N. Foster

I would love for this post in particular to be very interactive, hearing your time-proven goodnight routines for young children!

At the end of Lulu and Malek Sail Off to Sea, you see our two characters sound asleep dreaming about adventures to come! They indeed had a fun-filled day full of excitement, but on normal days, how do you wind your children down and prepare them for a good night's sleep?  

All the bells and whistles electronics had not yet been invented (or) were not purchased when I was a little girl, so my parents didn’t have to insist our phones or hand-held games were turned off. I’m glad for this. For me, knowing the sun would be going down soon after our family dinner had finished and the dishes dried and put away, I knew the inevitable bedtime was around the corner. I dreaded this because I was certain I would miss-out on something exciting! Yet, everything seemed to fall into place after bath time, brushing teeth and kneeling beside the bed to say prayers.

Afterward, mama or papa read us a story, and on many nights, we would make up a story–this was a favorite thing to do! Papa would start with: “A long, long time ago (he would pause here), when I was a little boy (he would emphasize and quickly say these words and we would laugh) . . .”. After his starter sentence, he would say, “In a land far, far away . . .”. 

Next, my little sister would add something funny or suspenseful on to the story, and then it was my turn to add a few sentences. Soon, our story turned into an adventure with twists, turns and laughter. Rarely did I want the story to end, but after 30-minutes or so, Papa found a way to end the story on a happy note. He would then kiss us, turn off the light, and say, “Goodnight little ones. I love you!” My greatest wish is to have children one day, and to tuck them in for a night of peaceful bliss!

Your ideas for winding excited little ones down for sleep would be fantastic to hear! Please share with us your endearing bedtime routines!

Just a bit about me. I live in Arizona, but for most of the year, I travel across our beautiful earth as a deckhand and yoga instructor in the yachting industry. I love the serenity of the sea, exploring treasured caves, hiking through lush green forests, immersing myself in different cultures, and meeting new friends. I recently launched an online retail store (www.yachtieinspired.com) that offers conservation and yachtie inspired designs through my Sea Our Love and Silent Whispers Collections. You can also purchase a Personalized Signed Copy of my books on my online store, or please visit junenfoster.com to learn more!

My co-author, Rob Scheer and I have completed two beautifully illustrated, heartfelt children's books. Rob is the Founder and CEO of Comfort Cases. Since 2013, Comfort Cases set out on a mission to eliminate the use of trash bags and provide children entering the foster system with brand new essential and comfort items.
