Perhaps "sleep like a baby" should be changed to "sleep like a kid."

Though kids are notorious for keeping their parents from sleeping, they can apparently pass out almost anywhere for a quick snooze. Whether they’re at the grocery store, at a restaurant, or just in the hallway, many kids seem happy to make due with wherever they are to get some sleep.

We asked the HuffPost Parents community to share photos of the random places their kids have fallen asleep. Check out the hilarious and impressive results below:

My husband sent this to me shortly after I went back to work, still cracks me up! She was a chronic non-napper until she hit this age, so it was totally unexpected for my husband!

Dozing off behind the wheel.

My daughter a few years back. Totally wasn't expecting to find her like this, but it made for a great memory... and possibly future blackmail. LOL

Sadina Marjanovic
This is a chair in our dining room -- her mid-day nap was not long enough I guess, so she fell asleep again after waking up :) She slept there for another 25 minutes. I checked up on her a couple of times, just to make sure she does not fall off of the chair...
31
Alissa Harris
My daughter, Lucy, sleeps in the most bizarre positions! So much so, that my Facebook friends think I should make a book of all of her sleeping poses. Here she is after sleep-walking into the living room, where she promptly fell back asleep like this!

Because what parent doesn't love coming out of their room at night to use the bathroom, only to be scared shitless by a body at the end of the hallway!?!?
33
Keith Layne
During the fireworks at Disney.

36
Melanie Resch
She falls asleep everywhere. Coloring in her dreams....

Mandy Pom
He didn't have his afternoon nap, so he fell asleep on the drive to dinner at Chipotle. Stayed sleeping in my arms while I ordered, slept through dinner on this bench at Chipotle, still asleep when transferred back to his car seat, and ultimately went to bed at 6:15 p.m. and was out for the night!
