Mary, I sure agree with your bedtime routine and timing. I sure agree that they can benefit from structure, even at the older ages as well!

I assume there have been no shortages of spankings around bedtime when the bedtime routine or its timing is not followed! With Donny being the oldest, just curious if he has had any bedtime related spankings recently or how long it has been?
