That ONE time I invented a bedtime story with my daughter
I can’t tell you how happy I am to introduce you to this new personalised bedtime story! The concept is so unique and well-defined, that you won’t see the bedtime routine with the same eyes EVER.AGAIN. Pinky promise!
Long story short, after navigating through all the stages of babyhood and toddlerhood, trying literally everything I could to put my daughter to sleep without whining and clinging, I have finally decided it’s time to put my super-power to work.
I am a writer and I am actually incredibly surprised it hasn’t crossed my mind way earlier. Only after going through the lockdown and the intense feelings of anxiety and fear that I have realised just how much I needed THIS bedtime story.
Books were already a part of our bedtime routine, but, trust me, this one is unlike any other bedtime story you’ve ever read before.
In all honesty, I have come up with this story one night, after turning the lights off. Ilinca, my little girl, wanted another story. We usually review everything we did during the day and we discuss our own favourite activities and maybe plan the day ahead.
But this particular night, I felt inspired.
I felt propelled to tell her a new story.
It’s like I had this bedtime story was just waiting to bloom like a spring flower.
Me and Ilinca – we put together different scenarios, we tried out some peculiar characters, until eventually, we reached to a version that we both liked so much. She fell asleep incredibly happy, thinking about the “Dream team” that we both made up.
It was a fantastic feeling!
I just knew I had to bring this bedtime story into the world, so that other parents and kids could enjoy a nice time cuddling up before going to bed, gently guiding the little ones to sleep.
I added the customisable feature to the book so that every child could identify with the story.
I can’t wait for you to try it out too!
Until next time,
