A new night time routine

I have instilled a new night time routine basically consisting of a bedtime. which is something our kids never had, but needed. We are now having dinner at six thirty baths around seven and bed at eight in their beds. It was a struggle, because the kids weren't prepared for "super momma" but that is what they got. Only 3 times did I have to put Maddie back in bed and she realized this was the way it was going to be. Kenzie on the other hand was a bit harder and I ended up having to lay with her to get her calmed down. She was so upset that she was getting really winded.. I didn't want her falling ill because she wasn't prepared to have to go to bed in her room. She kept crying that she was scared to be alone. I don't know what is up, but I will keep working on her and I know it will get better. Maybe I will do the sit by her bed and just inch my way out of the room technique. I have heard that it does work but it takes a while. We will just have to see how the next few nights go. As of right now, I have two sleeping lil girls in their beds and the house is quiet which is a rarity here. I am about to go to bed myself!
