All Ages

May 25, 2020

Over the years I’ve had the honor of working with many military families. As a part of our continuing series of “How others do bedtime routine” we’re sharing how two families with deployed husbands do bedtime routine for their multiple kids. In this podcast two Little Z’s graduate families share their story of how they complete bedtime routines for their families, and what a good night of sleep means to them.


Alex Arnold is a mom of 3 kids whose husband is in the military and is currently deployed. Her kids are 3.5 years old, 2 years old, and 5 months old. Alex shares how she manages dinner, bedtime, and everything in between all by herself.
