Hilarious Proof That Kids Can Sleep Anywhere
We’ve all seen the kid asleep in the middle of a crowd, calmly snoozing amid the chaos. While children have enough energy to play nonstop for hours, they also need to rest and recharge their batteries. Luckily for them, they have the ability to do just that, no matter the bizarre position they are in or the unlikely place they might be.
These pictures of sleeping kids are simultaneously entertaining and mind-boggling — so much so that it's difficult to believe they're actually asleep. But The Sandman has indeed won, allowing us to enjoy this sleepiest collection of napping, zonking out and generally resting wonky that the internet has to offer.
