35 Kids Napping In The Most Ridiculous Places

At some point in our adult lives, napping became a luxury.

I don’t know about you, but as a child, I would fight tooth and nail against naptime. My revulsion was so real that I’d stay awake for as long as possible… until finally crashing with the familiar thud of exhaustion. My photo albums prove I was a pro at finding silly sleeping spaces, but the kids in the list below might just have me beat.

If you’re in need of a laugh, check out these 35 kids falling asleep in absolutely ridiculous places.

1) “In the middle of a haircut. She said it was definitely a first!”

Snoozing away… He just didn’t want to stop.”
