Anyone who has ever had the challenge – err, joy – of sleeping with a small child knows that while your kiddo might be getting much-needed rest by being close to Mom or Dad, the adult in the bed is likely not getting the best shut-eye in the world.
Because kids in bed are one of two things – barnacles or octopi who take up every square inch of space.
26-year-old Trajuan Briggs started an adorable thread dedicated to the struggle of parents-of-toddlers everywhere when he posted an image of him “snuggled” with his kid, Isiah.
“Fathers, we should start a thread of pics showing how our kids sleep on us.”

And start they did.
Silly kids, thinking they’re allowed to grow up on us.
The first one was real. The second one we recreated for his 11th birthday. He wouldn't do it for his 12th. 🤣🤣🤣 pic.twitter.com/hWW8sLdwZT

Kids can sure do that to you.
Child we was tired that day. Hard to believe that was 7 years and three kids ago. But I can't imagine life without any of them now. Thank you for this thread pic.twitter.com/SNemWT2wss

Personally, I hope it’s never finished.
