Baby Epically Ruins Mom's Nap Session

Mom attempts to nap with baby; baby has other plans

In case you missed it, going viral this weekend is a one-minute clip that brilliantly captures just one of the many reasons why getting some shut-eye with a baby in the house is damn near impossible. Aside from being woken up at all hours for middle-of-the-night feedings or inexplicable crying jags, there's also the fact that the whole "napping when baby naps" concept sounds great in theory, but is tactically futile when it comes to execution.

I think I'm not alone in this."

Sigh. She's certainly not.

Check out the full clip below. We're sure you know this routine all too well.
