When Your Kid Falls Asleep On A Ride


kid asleep on a chairliftDear Babble,

I never thought it would happen to me.

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about 12 cute and adorable videos of kids falling asleep in the strangest places.

Well, this weekend, I lived it.

We took the gondola to the top of Big Mountain in Whitefish, Montana for some sight seeing. On the chairlift ride down, our 2 1/2 year old fell asleep.

Passed out. Dead to the world. Zonked.

The best part is the chairlift only took us half way. We still had tickets for one more ride on the alpine slide.

Charlie stayed crashed on the chairlift.

He stayed crashed as we unloaded.

He stayed crashed as my wife got in to the alpine slide AND .. he stayed crashed out cold the entire ride down.

It was hilarious.

When we went to get our action pictures from the photographer (with my son still crashed out in my arms) afterwards, he was already legend.

“Oh, is that the sleeping baby?”, everyone at the kiosk asked.

Yes, yes it is.

What about you? What’s the best ‘fell asleep in action‘ story you’ve got from your kids?
