I certainly make a production of mine.
For starters, my bedtime routine starts pretty early. About 3 hours before I plan to go to bed. First I watch an hour of a television program, either Strawberry Shortcake, Sofia the First, or Lalaloopsy. Really important to shut off all the adult worries of the day, I make sure I engross myself with it. By the end of it, little Angel is all that's left and that's just how it should be.
After that the bigger preparation starts, getting myself squeaky clean, brushing out my hair gently and lovingly as a princess deserves, brushing my teeth, and in general doing all the good girl stuff. Mommy being involved at this portion is important, but doesn't always happen unfortunately. Even though I'm going to bed I like to spray myself with a fruity glittery spray to go along with my sweet smelling lotions. It just makes me feel pretty, and feeling pretty at bedtime is still worth it.
I try to finish this an hour before bedtime because all the parenting books say that a sweet little princess like myself needs an hour of "quiet time" before bed, nothing big happening, no TV, just relaxing with some quiet.. a nice little book, is important. I get myself comfy and relax.. letting myself get more and more sleepy. My favorite thing about this is when mommy wants to read me a story, but again.. sometimes I'm too shy to ask her to read. I'm 6 though, and an read.. I'm a big girl.
After that it's bedtime. Of course I have some plushies and dollies with me!
