What time do you put your kids to bed? My cousin, Shannon, once told me, “there’s summer bedtime and then there’s winter bedtime.” This could not be more true.
In the summer, Brian and I are carefree parents…8 or 9 o’clock to put them down, usually whatever goes. But come winter, we get a little crazy about sleep…7:30 or 8 o’clock is as late as it gets. And if we don’t get them to bed on time in the winter, I blame myself for every tantrum the next day. Apparently during the summer, I’m much easier on myself. Is this a universal thing, or do you keep the same bedtime for your kids no matter if there’s a lot to do vs. nothing to do?
In related news, have you heard Samuel L. Jackson read Go the F**k to Sleep? My mom sent me this one. I am not sure what is funnier, my mom’s humor or Samuel L.’s reading.
ps- Who are those young people in the photo?
