Father, please give us a break. As you may know (you’ve had far more experience with it than we have) this life can be exhausting. And we don’t always get all the sleep we need to prepare ourselves for the coming day because, yes, sometimes we stay up reading when we are not supposed to be, if we are even at the age where children are supposed to be able to read, but then you pile all these activities on us that we barely even enjoy and it’s like, what are we even supposed to do? Not fall asleep in our skis while standing and around a bunch of other people in the bright light of day? The least you can do is not make a spectacle of us. Just let us get through it, and maybe take us home and give us a nap. And then wake us up when the hot cocoa with marshmallows is ready, because we want that too. And also a grilled cheese. And also some TV time. Thank you for understanding. (Via DailyPics.)

  1. He should meet up with that coffee making baby.

  2. Must be cross-country skiing. That shit puts me to sleep, too.

  3. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. It is truly remarkable how much children are like me when drunk. This must be what it sounds like, when doves cry.

    • My best friends have a couple month old baby and I’m constantly surprised at how much like a drunk college student he is.

      Also, from now on, when I’m wasted at work and passing out on my feet, I am telling everyone I am asleep.

      • “THERE IS NOTHING FUNNY ABOUT A DRUNK TODDLER.” — my brother and sister-in-law to me all the time.

        “Tee hee hee hee.”‘– me.

        • Ugh. Your brother and sister-in-law have no sense of humor. I insult my friend’s child all the time, and even threaten him while playing card games. Say maybe one of them has a card that can hurt me or another player, and I’m the one holding the kid, don’t think that I remind parent that I am holding their child, and don’t you think parent plays the card against another player?

          • “Ugh. Your brother and sister-in-law have no sense of humor.”

            Are you my mom? Just kidding, that is actually common knowledge at this point. I’m honestly worried about my nephew.

  4. I tried not to laugh when he fell down, but I’m only human.

  5. Is he asleep or is he in a trance? That’s the risk you take when you ski on VOODOO MOUNTAIN.*

    *In your head, read that last part in a scary Dracula voice for maximum enjoyment.

  6. They named him after the skier Bode Miller and made him ski. I wonder what sports their kids Shaquille, Venus, and Tiger fall asleep while playing?

  7. Great. Now I want a grilled cheese.

  8. Do little kids not get naps anymore? I guess they do, even if you ton’t take them to their beds! Poor kid!

  9. I just got back from swim camp (yes, it’s a real thing) and this is EXACTLY how I feel.

  10. This seems cruel to me. To video your poor child while he’s literally falling over from exhaustion. And to name him Bode.

  11. Rich babies have all the problems I tell you. He is going to be so cranky for his baby-masseuse when he gets back to the lodge.
