Wordful Wednesday-Occupational Hazard

Welcome to Wordful Wednesday……for more information, see “WW” inΒ  my handy dandy tabber box in my right side bar.

See what happens when one “falls asleep on the job” and is too lazy to make their children go to their own beds?

Jeff had a “late night” with the kids, which means they got to stay up late watching a movie together.

He was the only one that stayed on the couch.

  1. You’re brave! I give up when two kids join me (why can’t they EVER sleep straight?) . That’s when even the love seat is more comfortable.

    The legs tucked under the shirt make me laugh.

  2. That is too cute! Did you have to move them back to their beds or did they stay there the whole night? πŸ™‚

  3. That is so funny… all I can do is laugh. I have been there and done that! :o)

  4. I think that’s too cute, Angie! Did you show them the photo when they woke up? πŸ™‚

  5. Lol — DADS!

    My kids are NEVER in bed on time when my husband is in charge. NEVER.

  6. I love those moments when they are all asleep

  7. aww How Adorable!!! Did they sleep there all night?

  8. Precious! I’ve always said my boys are at their very best when they’re sleeping! πŸ™‚

  9. That actually looks like a wonderful way to spend the night. Well, maybe with a few more inches of space.

  10. I’m guessing you’re using the term “slept” (for yourself) loosely… πŸ˜‰

  11. haha! I can so see this in my family too… hence why we won’t watch tv in bed. LOL

  12. Love this. Seriously. It’s they way I always wind up on the floor.

  13. seriously – you crawled in there? I can’t sleep with three kids in my bed, I have no clue how you did it with 5!!

  14. MommyNamedApril says

    that picture is absolutely precious.

  15. Amazing. I have a hard enough time with just one. If only they didn’t sleep sideways!

  16. The question is…How much sleep did YOU get?

  17. That happens when I sleep with my son…and there’s only one of him! That couldn’t have been a comfortable night!!

    Did any of them end up moving off the bed? This picture is darling!

  18. Bed hogs πŸ™‚ But adorable ones at that…

  19. Omigosh I think I’d weasel my way in the gaps and hunker down, too!
    Adorable moment captured, Angie. πŸ™‚

  20. That is a nice family shot.
    That’s not amount of space, even for little old you.

  21. {giggle} so cute! Love how they are SPRAWLED all over.

  22. The Penny-Pinching Mama says

    Too funny!!!

  23. I just found your blog. I had to laugh out loud because I just wrote a blog about Wordless Wednesday and how no one seems to remain wordless. I am so pumped to be able to use words on Wednesday. So, when you check out my blog….scroll down and read my snarky comments about Wordless Wednesday. I think you will like it. Loved, loved, loved the photo! It reminded me of my life with four kids. They are all grown now and my husband and I have the bed to ourselves (unless you count the dogs who think they get to crawl up there too). That was TMI

  24. haha. I don’t know how you slept. I have trouble with just one three-year-old. Somehow I end up on the very edge of my king-size bed when she shares it with me.

  25. ha ha… poor thing… i think i’d have opted for one of their empty beds to sleep in!

  26. Just look at that pile of cute kids!

    That wouldn’t happen at my house because my kids know that the big bed is MINE.

  27. How cute!! But, I would’ve slept on one of their beds.

  28. Ah, how sweet it is to have all your babies snuggled up in your bed.

  29. Oh MY!! That is too adorable. Great moment captured. Happy WW!

  30. So funny. I’m getting sleepy just looking at that picture!

  31. LOVE it! I’ve done that before with my son.

  32. How could you have possibly slept there??? OUCH!

  33. That is too cute, a bit crowded, but still cute!

    I probably would have slept on the couch.

  34. As annoying as it might have seemed, it is really charming seeing them all curled up like that together. Some day they all won’t be in the same house and certainly not all in the same bed. How wonderful you could capture this moment.

  35. laurie Johnson says

    Brian will so appreciate that pic! He is usually ready to take them right back to bed. Me? on the other hand, usually pulling back the covers for them but even that might have been too much for me…Are you sure you meant to use slept? Seems like the couch might have been a better spot. Next time join Jeff:)

  36. How sweet. I am officially not going to complain about my 2 kids hogging the bed anymore πŸ™‚

  37. I have a few pics like this… only not all the kids are mine! LOL!
    If you only had a sliver, I’m thinking you didn’t get to sleep in then???

  38. How cute & cozy!
    However, I think I would’ve stayed on the couch too. OUCH, my back hurts just thinking about sleeping on that sliver.

    ps Are you still having trouble viewing and commenting on my blog?

  39. OMGoodness that is so cute!

  40. Precious! This is a scenario I know well in my own home.
    And before that…as a kid, I remember waking up crammed into Mom’s bed with a ton of my siblings. Snug!

  41. Too cute!! Love the pic.

    Happy Wednesday!

  42. That is the cutest picture ever!!

  43. that would drive me crazy….good luck with that! πŸ™‚

  44. love it!
    I love it when ALL of us sleep in my bed. but with new born I don’t think we can do it now πŸ˜€

  45. Woo Hoo! Slumber party, hey move over… where do I sleep???? LOL
    They look so cute!

  46. Oh my bed looks the same – minus a kid or two, lol! The worst is when they pee on my bed! What starts out as a nice gesture on my part turns into a lake in the middle of the bed. Not cool boys, not cool at all.

  47. Oh, this is such a keeper. The best of WW I’ve seen so far. Thanks!

  48. Such a cute picture….one you will cherish for many years too come. Except when you think about how uncomfortable you slept that night. You didn’t really sleep there did you? I would have crawled into one of their beds πŸ™‚ Love Garrett’s legs tucked into his shirt too!

  49. That is so cute!

    Thanks for hosting!

  50. did u get any sleep tho? and is one of the boys wearing a pillow under his jumper? so cute!

  51. Too stinkin’ funny!! I have experienced many a night like yours… Consider yourself lucky to have it recorded in such a fabulous picture. πŸ™‚

  52. Too cute! I doubt that you were very comfortable, but it looks like the kids were.

  53. Oh ,y, brave dad and cute sleepers.

  54. Shouldn’t have thought there was much room for Jeff to come back too! LOL Cute pic!

    Here’s mine – slightly different to the usual photo but I wanted so much to share this to everyone, it’s such an important book for women.

    Please come and visit by clicking here!

    Thank you!

  55. That is seriously darling!

  56. Aww, that’s such a sweet and cute pic but then again my reaction was “OUCH” after you pointed out where you were sleeping. I can’t imagine how your back, side, legs and arms must’ve felt the next day. The things we do and go through for our kids… πŸ™‚

    Happy Hump day chica!

  57. That would be SUCH a great holiday card!

  58. LOL That’s a familiar scene. I do the same thing on Friday nights when my husband is working late. The girls and I have a movie night in my bed. Love it!

  59. Oh that’s just way too funny! And they’re adorable! Did Jeff end up getting more sleep than you on the couch as opposed to that little sliver of space? πŸ˜‰

  60. I love that pic! I don’t have enough kids to replicate it, but it is amazing to me how our room attracts our two like a magnet; we have three full baths but our DD must use our shower every night — usually right about the time I am heading that way!!

    In my wordless, I share my friend Ann’s art of sumi-e (Chinese bamboo brush painting)!

  61. At least you got that little sliver, right?

  62. I have that happen to me all the time. I move the kids who are small enough to move. So how was your night’s sleep?

  63. Susie's Homemade says

    So sweet!!

  64. That would be a rough night!

  65. omg That is the best photo EVER! You have the sweetest sleeping children!

  66. I love the legs tucked up into the shirt. But I’m betting you didn’t get a lot of sleep.

  67. That’s terrific. What moms do for the sake of their kids, or for their own sanity of not waling sleeping kids.

  68. omg, how precious! that is so cute!!

  69. Hehe! Been there, done that! Happy WW!

  70. That is just too cute!!

  71. Oh my goodness! Too cute. All I can think of is that storybook “The Napping House” when I see this picture! If you don’t know the book I’m talking about you have to check it out. It will make you laugh.

  72. OMG – I LOVE this picture! Too funny. How did you ever sleep in that teeny tiny space!?!?

  73. That picture is absolutely HILARIOUS! I don’t know how any of you got any sleep.

  74. Aww, too cute!

  75. first time linking up here. your picture is hilarious!

  76. Nice! I have trouble when it’s just my three year old hopping in bed for the morning. I hope you have a king bed at least!

  77. I’d have left them there and gone to sleep in the guest room. That may be the only time I’ve ever seen 5 kids in the same place without a big fight!

  78. Such a cute picture! This reminds me of growing up and all of us siblings (9 total) would try to fit on our couch and eventually fall asleep there. Though, It may have just been 5-6 at one time!

  79. I don’t know how you do it!! Just one in bed with me kicking and squirming drives me nuts! Why can’t they stay in one position when they sleep?

    Cute picture!

  80. THIS PHOTO IS BEAUTIFUL! And that little space was a slice of heaven on earth. Surrounded by so much warm and fuzzy beauty.

    Lucky lucky woman.

  81. Add two big dogs and you have my bed, but so much love!

  82. This is a beautiful sight indeed!

  83. This makes me giggle alot. I am the one who usually gets a little sliver of space to sleep.

    It is a good memory πŸ™‚


  84. I love it! πŸ™‚ Look how peaceful they all are!

  85. Did they stay there all night? Too funny!

  86. and i complain when the 2 year old is in bed with me and Rob LOL

  87. Oh my! They each have their space and look so comfortable although your space allotment looks a little tight and close to the edge for comfort πŸ™‚

  88. Totally precious…..from a mom of six!!! Enjoy, they grow so fast!!! Wonderful memories,
    stopped by for WW

  89. Been there.

    Done that.

    Got the t-shirt.


  90. Too cute!! First time doing WW, exciting!

  91. That’s too funny! My husband does the same thing. lol Happy Wordless (or in your case, Wordful) Wednesday Angie. Have a good one…

    Kristi, Live and Love…Out Loud

  92. How did you ever sleep? I would have been up all night!! Cute picture!

  93. I love he Wordful Wednesday. It gives me a chance to share my photos and ramble about them with my blog friends. Thank you for hosting this.

  94. Love it!! So cute! I’m either a genius or missing out, my sopn refuses to sleep in my bed, ever!

  95. Love it!! So cute! I’m either a genius or missing out, my son refuses to sleep in my bed, ever!

  96. That is amazing!! I can’t even sleep with one child. LOL.

  97. Awwwwwwwwwwwwww! Angie! I love all their red sunshined cheeks : ) So sweet!

  98. I don’t see how you got any sleep.

  99. aww, i love it…

  100. reminds me of a photo somewhere around here that was from when I was little. A few families must have all gone to an amusement park together and saved money by cramming all of the kids into one bed. We were all sunburnt and sleeping like we were dead. Kids can sleep anywhere!

  101. This is my first time visitng….but dang! Thats a lot to fit in bed w ya :o)

  102. Too funny! My cats and husband take up enough room as it is – I can’t imagine adding kids to the mix!

  103. Space is overrated! When your bedmates are so cute

  104. I love it! I actually can’t wait until those days that we can all pile in bed and watch a movie together. How sweet!

  105. I’ve seen that many times in the living room, it always look like we had a camp out.

  106. I feel for you! I’ve had many nights in that little sliver on the edge of the bed. It’s one of the many mysteries of children. How can they sleep so well like that?

  107. LOL! Oh, my goodness. It reminds me of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

    Happy WW!

  108. oh. how perfect.

  109. My first time participating in Wordful Wednesday! Looks like I need to get here earlier next weekβ€”so many participants!

  110. I love this photo — what a sweet moment! I’ve got to give you credit for clinging to that little sliver of space. More often than not, if my son climbs into bed with us halfway through the night, I wind up moving to his empty twin bed. It’s amazing how much space just my one child occupies in bed, I can’t imagine five!

  111. Ack! My first attempt at linking up (#177) was an “oops.” I re-entered my link, please feel free to delete my first try.

  112. LOL. Not much room left in there, is there. My kids are old enough that they rarely end up in our bed these days.

    Most of the time I don’t miss it.

    My photography is available for purchase – visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

  113. Awwww….little angels.

  114. That is so cute. they look adorable and very peaceful. thanks for the resource links…very useful and helpful

  115. I am impressed you were able to get ANY sleep. Your sliver is smaller than my sliver is when both of my girls and husband all crash in our bed. Oh the things we do for our kids πŸ™‚

  116. That sliver isn’t much! Did you get to sleep at all πŸ™‚

  117. Hi! My bed has looked like that! πŸ™‚ I’ve been reading and enjoying your blog for a while now but just realized I wasn’t following! Since fate deems it important enough to pull me here every day I am now your newest follower!

  118. Ha Ha! This happens at our house a lot!

  119. What a priceless photo! Love it!

  120. Love it! Looks like my kids and I missed one heck of a party!

  121. Why disturb that many sleeping children? I love it!

  122. Awww, that’s adorable. I’m sure it wasn’t a comfortable way to sleep, but they look just like a litter of puppies.

  123. That is sooo cute!!

  124. Space — what space? Too cute! Thanks for hosting such a fun meme! πŸ™‚

  125. That is too cute and sweet! I can’t believe they all slept!

    And, your space? Yeah, I would have taken over one of their beds!

  126. Lauren @ Hobo Mama says

    That is super adorable! What a loving parent you are to take the leftover sliver. πŸ™‚

  127. Oh that looks so fun and cozy….well, for a moment anyway. I think I would have moved to one of their beds! πŸ˜‰

  128. Wow…and I thought having just one of my kids in bed was tough! LOL!

  129. LOL gotta love the family bed!! I’ve been known to get up and go get in one of THEIR beds since it’s empty!
