Bedtime in my house would be disastrous without a routine to abide by. Getting all three littles in bed, at a decent hour, can be tricky tricky so we stick to a pretty tried and true schedule to keep things smooth sailing. Our night time routine starts after dinner and looks a little like this:
- 1 hour of screen time after dinner to wind down
- baths commence shortly afterward
- pick out and read a story or two
- brush all the buckies
- rub backs, give night night kisses
- mama showers, relaxes with a cup of tea or wine, comfy slippers, and works until sleepy
With said schedule, I can usually get everyone down for the count by 8pm (10pm on a super rough night). As part of the Arm & Hammer Influencer Network, I have the opportunity to test out products that make the day to day a little easier. Arm & Hammer fits nicely into our nightly routine when it comes to keeping smiles bright and mouths fresh. Adam loves brushing his teeth while jamming out to some One Direction. The Arm & Hammer Tooth Tunes allows me to keep track of how long Adam is brushing his teeth. How? Easy! It’s the only tooth brush that plays 2 full minutes of hit music, encouraging a good, long brush.
The Tooth Tunes toothbrush is great from a mom perspective because it’s a rather muffled sound (really, only Adam can hear it while he is brushing his teeth) so it doesn’t become a distraction. They are available in some catchy tunes, with jams from Black Eyed Peas to Queen so kids can pick their favorite song to brush to!
Arm & Hammer is an essential name in our house and plays a key part in winding down my family at night. From their Spin Brushes to their toothpaste, Arm & Hammer products are a stable in my bathroom and the only brand I trust.
