The Winner Has Been Chosen for the St. Eve Kids Blanket

I'm not sure if you remember, but  a few weeks ago we had a short little contest where people described their 5 Useful Tips for Bedtime Routines.  The prize was a gorgeous wearable blanket from St. Eve Kids.  The blankets have arrived and they are adorable.  So, it's time to choose a winner.  Thanks to all for your participation.

Random Org picked #3 and the winner is:

Supermom said...

We have a very regimented routine here LOL
7:30pm- Timmy time (fairly odd parents) and a small snack
7:45pm- mommy brushes teeth
8pm- into bed with 2 stories (Sometimes I like to Curl up in a Ball and The Very Hungry Caterpiller- gawd I'm sick of reading these sammmmmme stories every night). I lay on the bed while daddy reads and then we both hug/kiss goodnight
8:10pm- CD of classical tunes goes on and her white noise machine with a night light goes on. she gets to pick the colour the night light shines.
