Parents,<br><br>
My DH needs some time to himself. He's a SAHD. I want to take over the bedtime routine for my 16 month old twins so he can go out with friends or something.<br><br>
Any suggestions on how one adult can manage two toddlers to bed? Our current routine is bath (DDs and me in the tub together), then DH and I lotion and diaper them and get them in their jammies (if this takes long, they both pull off their diapers!). Then quiet play and reading books, bottles of milk with lullaby CD playing, and sleep.<br><br>
I'm scared cuz I work all day and then will be on double duty at night. But DH really needs some time for himself.<br><br>
Suggestions needed badly, please respond.<br><br>
Yours,<br>

okay first off I don't have twins... so I really have no "real" ideas but ... here i go the momma that i used to baby sit for had 3 kido's twins b/g (18 mo) and a 4 yo ds she bathed with all the kids in the morning... (she was a ft sahm.. I baby sat so she could have some "alone" time at the gym) anywho... she and all three kiddos were in the tub with the door closed and lots of rubber backed rugs in there... and when they were clean she would plop them out on the rugs and they knew they had to stay there until momma was out of the tub... then they all went to the twins room...(all nekkid ) and the 2 boys played while girly got dressed and powdered and then it was brothers turn (twin) and he got dressed and powdered etc... and then they all trooped into big brothers room where he got dressed... and then into mom's room where they got a "special" movie... while momma got dressed<br><br><br>
so... anyways... I don't know if that's helpful... but this momma loved her nekkid time (it always shocked me coming from a very private, only nekkid alone, type of family)
