I had decided on a variation of Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep (with the "if I should die" referenced changed). But now we've been using a pretty little picture book called Night Night Prayer. It's a great winding down routine. You go through and say good night to the sun, the birds, the flowers, the trees, the dog, the cat, Mommy and Daddy, then a little thank you to God. Each page has "Night, night xxxx" and DS repeats it back. (NOTE: I'm not Christian, but DH and family is. I was the one that found the book though and it's been great at setting the bedtime tone. If he says "night night" even once in the whole process, we know he'll go to bed pretty happilly!) We ended up getting another copy for our neice as well (just 10 days apart from DS). I found it at Target, but I'm sure Amazon or other bookstores carry it!
