Why don’t we eat dinner in bed?

eating in bed

Almost every time my wife breastfeeds our son, he falls asleep eating. Sometimes she keeps waking him so he can finish eating. I’m sure a belly full of warm milk to someone already prone to naps is the reason why… but it makes me laugh.

When was the last time you ate a giant Thanksgiving banquet in bed? Why do we let kids eat and fall asleep, but not parents? I’d love to have a giant sandwich or cheesecake on my nightstand and then slowly eat as I drift off to sleep. Aside from waking up when I rolled over into a bowl of cereal, I don’t see any problems with this plan.

Did you fall asleep eating as a kid? Any funny photos asleep at the dinner table?

  1. Hmm…come to think of it, I don’t think I have ever fallen asleep while eating. But you may have just given me a new goal in life, if only I could get that one scene from the movie “Se7en” out of my head.
