Bath, brush teeth, bedtime stories. Then Water! Mommy! Owl! Potty! Daddy! Thirsty! Blankie! Hair hurts! Story! Etc. We *just* moved to a “big girl bed” from a crib in Mommy and Daddy’s room, and the transition has been a bit rough.
If there’s a magical book to cut this process down to a more manageable ritual, I am SO in.

It depends on the child and the night–the toddler generally gets into her pajamas after her bath,has a little Paw-Paw time and then just goes to bed–not always happily, but is asleep almost immediately. The first grader, on school nights, tries to drag it out as long as possible, but after bath, teeth, drink, snack, etc., will usually conk out after about 10 minutes of otherwise restricted video game with his uncle.
