The Unexpected Blessing of Bedtime Chats

Hey there, lovely! So, something kind of amazing happened in our house recently, and I just have to share it with you.

Our Cozy New Bedtime Routine

It all started with a new bedtime for Jackson. We’ve coslept with Jackson since he was a newborn, a phase that we’ve really loved. However, since Jackson can’t fall asleep without us laying with him, his bedtime has been much later than it needs to be. This isn’t great for him and it isn’t great for us either. So, we’ve started hitting the hay earlier, sans screens. And guess what? It’s been a game-changer.

Beyond Serious Talks: Finding Joy in the Everyday

In these quiet, screen-free nights, I’ve stumbled upon a beautiful truth: real communication in a relationship isn’t confined to the “serious talks”. It’s found in those spontaneous, light-hearted moments too. The kind where we share a laugh over the silliest things, like ‘would you rather’ questions, or when we dream out loud about the future. These moments have reminded me of our dating days – those initial sparks of love, where every conversation was a blend of depth and playfulness.

It’s in these everyday exchanges where we find joy and connection. These chats, as trivial as they may seem, are the threads that strengthen the fabric of our relationship. They remind us that not every conversation needs to resolve conflicts or issues; sometimes, the best talks are those that simply celebrate being together, basking in the warmth of shared laughter and love.

Cultivating a Home of Gratitude and Joy

Embracing our role as Christians, as helpers to our husbands, and as mothers, I’ve come to understand the significant impact we have on the atmosphere of our homes. We are, in many ways, the heart of our households, setting the tone for our family life. 

Listen mama, I’m saying this with love when I tell you that your words, both positive an negative, will impact your entire household. Grumbling about the dishes, passive aggressive statements about daddy, and that occasional word that slips out a little more often than you’d like are all affecting the atmosphere of your home

If communication is key, then we have to be intentional about what we are communicating to our family. 

Gratitude, I think, is the answer to this. It’s about shifting our focus from what’s lacking to what’s abundant. 

Sorry, rant over.

A Little Challenge for You

So here’s my little challenge to you: rediscover the joy of simple, heartfelt conversations with your husband. Ask those silly questions, share your dreams, and listen with an open heart. You might just find yourself reconnecting with your best friend in a whole new way.

I’d love to hear from you – what simple changes have you made that brought joy to your relationships?
