I like to think I am up on all humorous baby happenings around the internet, but sometimes I miss things. And when that happens, I BLAME YOU GUYS FOR NOT TELLING ME ABOUT THEM.

Back in November, Esther Anderson from Story of this Life posted this hilarious video called “Escaping a Sleeping Baby” which shows her and her husband’s various attempts to move quickly and quietly away from their slumbering newborn.

I remember doing ALL OF THESE THINGS. Especially memorizing the creaks in the floor. I knew exactly where NOT to step.

If I ever have the time, I’d make a follow up video of how NOT to escape a sleeping baby, which includes sneezing as soon as you lie the baby down. Happened to me more than once. Sigh.

In what ways have you failed to escape your sleeping baby?
