This Adorable Baby Took a Snooze on the Toilet

When you're too tired to potty train...

After potty training three kids, I'll admit that on many occasions, I've wanted to fall asleep from boredom. I mean, there is so much waiting for something to happen! I can only imagine how many hours of my life were spent staring at my kid on the toilet, hoping against hope she will go.

So I had to laugh at a new viral video of a baby who fell asleep while sitting on the potty. Because, yeah, he was probably really bored. And maybe a little over supporting his weight on the toilet without a potty seat.

The video was posted by an Instagram user known as ChefP_Alday, and has since been viewed almost 18,000 times. In the short clip, we see the Tennessee chef's son, who goes by Junior according to the adorable tot's own Instagram page, like, totally out cold while his little bum dips into the toilet.

When Junior hears his dad's voice saying his name, he comes to, and doesn't seem to know where he is. It's pretty funny. And hey, loving that shower curtain by the potty, incidentally!

Commenters loved the video, saying that it made their day, and that it was the funniest thing ever. On a serious note, I'm just hoping the baby was supervised the entire time he was sitting on the potty, because otherwise, this moment could have played out differently, and wouldn't have been so funny.

Of course, we're glad it turned out the way it did, and want to thank this dad and baby for giving us a good laugh today!
