This Father Took Photos Of All The Places His Little Boy Fell Asleep. And It’s Hilarious.

When reddit user Scevans09 posted a gallery of his son sleeping, I expected it to be boring. We've all seen kids sleeping. But I'm pretty sure you've never seen a kid fall asleep in this many awkward, crazy positions. His naps are basically an artform - and one I'm jealous of. I want to fall asleep literally anywhere. Just like him: Sitting up in a chair. Laying awkwardly. On the kitchen chairs. In the car, thinking. Under his brother. Mostly on the bed. In a Jean Claude Van Damme split. ...

Parents Speak The Hilarious Truth About Dealing With Kids On Thanksgiving

Funny
After a long day of slaving over a stove and nearly burning the bird, parents look forward to finally getting a chance to sit down and enjoy the fruits of their Thanksgiving labor. Unfortunately, as most parents have learned by now, dealing with children on Thanksgiving could leave anyone feeling a little less than thankful. These moms and dads took to Twitter to vent their frustrations, and if you have kiddos, I have a sneaking suspicion you'll identify with what they have to say. 1. The verdict is in. Next year we're going to Chuck E. Cheese for the holidays. I love Thanksgiving.

This Crafty Mom Keeps Her Kids Entertained And Educated With Their Lunch.

When parents send their kids off to school with their lunches packed, sometimes they'll throw in a note of encouragement or some other small token to make sure they remember how much their parents love them while they're away. For Tokyo, Japan, based mom Maiko Takahashi, the entire meal becomes a blank slate for creative ways to keep her kids entertained, educated and healthy. She frequently crafts cartoon characters and cute animals, but she was also inspired to add in a geography lesson with these beautifully prepared bento-boxed lunches.

Great parents will go to any length to protect their children. Whether it's answering the door with a shotgun before their first date or catching a baby free-falling from a window, parents can truly be amazing.

You know those cheap fireworks that you can buy at the grocery store? The ones that fizzle, pop, and, if we're honest, don't seem to do much of anything? After a terrifying accident, this mom has a warning for parents. Stephanie Row purchased the fireworks for a fun evening with her kids. The instructions said to stand at least 15 feet away, but her four-year-old daughter, Maisie, chose a spot well over 30 feet from where the fireworks were being set off. No one expected that she would be put in harm's way. That's when tragedy struck. A rogue firework launched sideways, striking Maisie and embedding itself into her scarf before exploding.
