Knocked Out!

Aaron was such a terrible sleeper as a baby that until today, I am still amazed to watch him sleep. This is especially the case if he falls asleep outside his bed.

We took him to a huge indoor playground at a mall recently. That place was any child's heaven! There were ramps, tunnels, multiple ball pools and best of all, the slides looked like they were 3 floors tall.

Aaron was non-stop in there for nearly three hours. He really wasn't faking it when he told me that he couldn't walk out to the car. We no longer use a stroller with him and he's too heavy to be carried so the best I could offer was a shopping trolley.

Literally 2 minutes after I put him in there, this is what I see...



Oh, the pink striped socks? The playground insisted that all kids and parents wore socks so, they were the cheapest pair I could find in the nearby shops. He didn't seem to mind.

Love the pink socks! What a fun place. I love when I can have my kids play themselves tired! Great fun!

In about 14 years he's going to shoot you for taking this picture.

Ahhh, poor little guy!

Oh dear!!! He probably would have got away without any mental trauma over socks, being such a tender age, BUT now they are all over the internet. I can see therapy coming.
You have to admire kids, they sleep when they need to and the place doesn't matter.
cheers

great pic! I remember taking our kids to a similar sounding place. I'm not sure who had the most fun...I am sure that I wasn't sleeping on the drive home!

Oh my goodness, that is a HOOT! I swear if that happened to me I would have purchased and taken that cart home! What a sweetie!
