This is a good one…

I stumbled upon this old video totally by accident, while posting the last Naps Happen video.  I had completely forgotten about it, which amazes me.  What could be better?

I think it was Allison at Motherhood WTF   (Edit: Nope – it was Kim at Let Me Start By Saying…sorry Kim!) who requested live footage of how naps “happen.”  What I am showing you here is a very early sign of what was coming, before the first nap I ever photographed even happened.

Important: The music is not a track I laid on.  It was in the room, coming from the keyboard muzak function.

Enjoy.  If you can stay awake.

    I always wondered how the naps happened. What is it, your kids have something against their beds?

    • Pretty much. They never want to admit it’s time to slow down. And then they collapse.

  2. I watched this video and giggled, reminiscing about an old video I have myself of my daughter doing the exact same thing!!

  3. Ok. That was me actually begging for video footage. And now my life is complete.
    That was AWESOME.

    • Aw, crud. Sorry! Edit made…

      • No worries! In the end, i got my way. That’s all that matters. *watching it again*

  4. I could watch this all day.

  5. He’s just like a Weeble! Weebles wobble but they won’t fall down. I do love how adamantly he protested the instant you tried to pick him up; “If you put me in bed, how will we have a good ‘Naps Happen’ post?!?” 😉

    The Muzak in the background is AWESOME. Hideously perfect.
