Jerry Seinfeld Aptly Pokes Fun at Kids’ Ridiculous Bedtime Routines and Their “Stuffed Animal Semi-Circle of Emotional Support”

If you, like me, are exhausted by the time you FINALLY get the kids in bed, then you’ll appreciate this clip from Jerry Seinfeld’s appearance on Jimmy Fallon last night. Skip ahead to 3:50, where Seinfeld — whose kids are 8, 10 and 13 — makes fun of the elaborate bedtime routines that us parents host for the kids every night, comparing the ridiculousness of it all to when we were kids and parents just, you know, tucked us in and turned out the lights. THE END.

Oh my, so true. Heck, sometimes my daughter even demands a dance routine as I’m heading out the door — and, even worse, I DO IT FOR HER. No pride. No pride at all.

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)
