Atticus didn’t want to wake up today

My son Atticus, three, is a deep sleeper. Much like his father. He also tends to choose interesting places to sleep. Today we discovered him asleep in a laundry basket on his bed.

Then this happened:

I'm just going to see how far I can move him like this.

Got him downstairs.


Inside his cedar play house.

In the hammock.

Difficulty level: Moses.


Finally got him to wake up.

I showed him the photos and videos. He went from sleepy to bemused to incredulous to recounting stories about his adventures.

And that was the end of his adventure. Then, as I was about to post this, this happened:

And… he got stuck in a trash can.

Oh, Atticus.
