37 Photos Of Kids Taking A Quick Snooze In Odd Places

Perhaps "sleep like a baby" should be changed to "sleep like a kid."

Though kids are notorious for keeping their parents from sleeping, they can apparently pass out almost anywhere for a quick snooze. Whether they’re at the grocery store, at a restaurant, or just in the hallway, many kids seem happy to make due with wherever they are to get some sleep.

We asked the HuffPost Parents community to share photos of the random places their kids have fallen asleep. Check out the hilarious and impressive results below:

    This is a chair in our dining room -- her mid-day nap was not long enough I guess, so she fell asleep again after waking up :

    This is a chair in our dining room -- her mid-day nap was not long enough I guess, so she fell asleep again after waking up :) She slept there for another 25 minutes. I checked up on her a couple of times, just to make sure she does not fall off of the chair...
