As I've posted before, one really fun thing about parenting is discovering all the goofy stuff that adults do in the name of kids, or kids' entertainment. This video of Ricky Gervais putting Elmo to bed cracks me up. It's both Gervais's delivery and the surprise at 1:36 that makes my nearly-3-year-old laugh at it every time too. (Okay, it's also funny because frankly, sometimes I think my husband basically does this when I am trying to get our kids to bed. What it is about dads and kids that wrestling happens at the end of the day?) I'll admit that I'm ambivalent about a lot of screen time, but I still love YouTube for showing my kids what dolphins look like swimming and so forth. We also sometimes find ourselves playing a round of "oh let me show you this thing" after dinner. That's why my older son is convinced that Freddie Mercury is still alive, and also why he knows many of the Schoolhouse Rock songs.
