What happened here?

I really sat sort of speechless in front of this photo for a few minutes and thought, “What, exactly, happened here?”

It looks as if my five-year-old was playing a two-player Xbox game, when he was suddenly buried under an ottoman and a toy box.  And then…he got tired and fell asleep?

Yeah. I got nothin’…

How does a person prepare a bed of pillows and wrap himself in his blankie before being surprised by an avalanche of playroom furniture? Sadly, there wasn’t a good samaritan in sight to help pull him out of this awkward situation. Perhaps he played each controller until the batteries ran out and then succumbed to exhaustion, hoping a parent would find him.

Don’t give up hope, William!

The worst part is that he was just a couple of feet from his half-eaten grilled cheese. He can almost reach it.

Hang on, my man. Mama is coming!



  1. I’m very confused.

  2. It’s amazing! Maybe he was playing ‘fort’ and then fell asleep. I wish I could nap like your kids 🙂

  3. Is it possible that another small person put the objects on him after he fell asleep? If not, then I have no idea how this happens.

  4. Kids are weird. And I love them for it.

  5. Please. How many times have I been washing the dishes only to wake up two hours later … disoriented, wet and soapy and on the floor in the front of the sink with the faucet still running? Dude, when you’re tired, you’re tired.

    Carpe nap!
