There is much to be jealous of when it comes to kids and their ability to sleep.
Like, how the heck do they do it? How do they possess that magical ability to be babbling and doing somersaults off the roof and running around one second and then, ten seconds later, they are up to their eyelids in the deepest sleep ever known to mankind?
I don’t understand it. I really really don’t.
But, I envy this incredible group of Legendary Nappers something fierce.
In this day and age when people seem to consider their ultra-busy schedules to be some strange sort of badge of honor it comes as a relief to me to occasionally witness the incredible natural ability to nap hard and fast that babies and toddlers have. They are a reminder that we take ourselves way too seriously; that while we’re so often busy-busy-busy doing nothing much at all, they refuse to buy into the hoax and just drop where they’re standing.
And it cracks me up to see how originally they often execute their skills.
I mean, kids can pretty much sleep standing up, like a horse. They can fall into a powerful slumber during the middle of a booming parade or a fireworks show and never even flinch as atomic bombs go off above their tiny heads. Show a tired kid a pillow hung from the ceiling with a piece of fishing line and they’ll more than likely find a way to rest their weary noodle on it, huh?
So, in honor of the millions of kids all over the world whose sleeping superpowers ensure their membership in the the Legendary Nappers, I’ve collected some pretty hilarious pictures.
Prepare to chuckle.
