It was so hilariously bizarre, Tia had to take a photo: She found her 4-year-old daughter asleep. Covered up with her blanket. On the stairs.
How does that even happen?
No parent knows — but it happens often enough to warrant an entire website of photos of kids asleep in the weirdest places. The website: NapsHappen.net. Beware: It’s addictive. So wait for the next time your little one passes out in perfect plank position between two pieces of furniture before you start browsing.
On the topic of kids napping, there are so many amazing nap mats and sleeping bags out there that it’s a wonder kids would prefer to sleep on the kitchen table in a bowl of cereal.
Pottery Barn Kids makes the cutest pink little kitty nap mat, $55, made of comfy, fuzzy fleece and quilt-lined. Pay an extra $7 to personalize it with your kid’s name. Save money with these Pottery Barn Kids coupons. Read more articles about saving money at Pottery Barn Kids here.
Looking for something a little, uh, wilder? This Melissa & Doug sleeping bag, $25.99, looks like an alligator is gobbling up your kid. Cute or kind of scary? Maybe a little bit of both? Maybe it depends on how your kid was behaving before nap time.
Pair the sleeping bag with a fun tent, like this Melissa & Doug Mollie tent, $39.99, designed to look like a big ladybug. Or even better, how cool is this Pacific Play Tent Teddy Bear Tee Pee? Yup, it’s designed to look like a surprisingly authentic mini teepee, $179.99. Can mama sleep in there?
Or you could get a real bed tent, designed to fit over your kid’s bed, like this Pacific Play bed tent that looks like a darling little cottage, $47. Pacific Play offers a variety of other themed bed tents, too, such as castles, tree houses and even an “under-the-sea cabana.” Ooh, fancy.
