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?
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.
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!
