Funny places kids fall asleep: 24 kids show that they can sleep anywhere

All the funny places kids fall asleep

As parents know, sleep is often so elusive. We buy swings and soothers to lull them them to dreamland, and invest in bassinets and co-sleepers and cribs and beds to help keep them asleep.

And then what happens after our careful preparations and expenditures? Our kids nod off randomly wherever they happen to be, as these 24 children prove!

1) A new use for a toy bin!

9) Kids + Culture = ?

From a mother: “Kids, you are going to come to a play tonight with Dad and I…” Kids: “Cool, what movie are they going to be playing?” Mother: “Oh, it’s not a movie, it’s a play…sort of like a movie except it’s in real life.” Kids: “Well, I don’t know…” Mother: “Oh come on, it’s good for you. You need to learn how to do grown-up things for once. Life’s not all about watching TV and playing Nintendo all day…”
