So, so, sleepy

I've been putting my toddler to bed this week, and reading him quiet books has thrown me into an early snooze-fest! I get so relaxed reading the same books, in a hushed and slow rhythm that I'm unable to wake up - at 8pm!
On the current playlist is the above lovely pop-up, illustrated by our very own PBJ Alicia Padron. All Year Round is so sweet, and soft - even the pop ups are soothing. We've ended our reading on this book the past few nights.
We're also reading:
Rolie Polie Olie, by William Joyce
The Wheels on the Bus, by Annie Kubler
I'll see you in the morning, by Mike Jolley, Illustrated by Mique Moriuchi

Does this happen to other parents? Do you find yourself nodding off with your little ones?

As a Dad of 4 (2 older and 2 younger) I remember my daughter nudging me to wake up during our reading time. I think we have all been there :-)

I swapped with my husband so I could be more productive tonight - we'll see if it has the same effect on him tonight!
