Sometimes Rhys will read his latest book from school, other nights they’ll have 3 stories read to them.
Sometimes they’ll get into Rhys’ bed together, sometimes Nerys will switch ends of her bed so she’s closer to him.
Sometimes they’ll go off to sleep quickly, other nights there’ll be shouts for drinks, and teddies and one-more-hug.
But the part of the evening that’s pretty consistent is the bath.
We’ve found that they seem to need that signal that it’s time to start preparing for bedtime. And they’re both big fans of being in the water, so they play with their bath toys, pretend to swim, sing with Daddy and generally have a good time.
I love this photo of Nerys enjoying bathtime, partly because you can really see how her hair is finally starting to grow longer, with the lovely little curl around her ears. It’s taken a long time to get to this point!
