Bedtime Routine

Hello, everyone - it's me, Cammie!  We have a lot of great routines here at Ao4 Headquarters.  I'd like to tell you a little bit about the bedtime routine today!  A long time ago, my great sister Stormy told you how she, Ammy, my Dave, and Zimmie had a set formation!  Zim and I aren't that organized (yet), but I thought I'd tell you about our drill.

I know it's close to bedtime when Mom makes the the coffee for the next morning.  After that, she takes Zim and me outside to go potty.  When we come back inside, she puts together our bedtime snack, then says, "In the bedroom, you two!"  Sometimes I talk to her while she gets our snack - just to  make her go faster  encourage her!  I know she likes that!

When we get the green light, Zim and I run into the bedroom and wait for Mom and Dad.  After we have our snack, Zim does a security check out all the windows, Mom and Dad do their biped stuff, and me?  I see what Zim's doing, then I get on the bed.  Usually Dad has turned the TV on, so ... well ... you know who controls the remote, right?  Yes.  The alpha in the family.

I'll leave it there.  Have a great day, everyone!

Cammie!

  7. Watching TV in bed is pretty luxurious, Cammie! My mum and dad don't have a TV in the bedroom. They just like to make me feel deprived.

  8. I'm glad to hear that you get going-to-bed treats too! But we must talk to mom about a tv in the bedroom! She doesn't need to read those boring books!

  9. I love having routines. When momma turns off the TV, it makes a chirp sound which is my signal for last call in the yard. Afterwards, even though I know it is bedtime, I don't get on my couch until momma says "beddy byes" and tucks me in properly with a snuggle and a smoochie.
