Dad Took Instructions To Put Daughter In Bed Literally—And The Internet’s Cracking Up

Well, that's one way to do it!

Aaron Cade and Ashley Nicole Williams are the parents of 2-year-old London. When Cade came in with the tot asleep in her car seat, Williams asked that the father put her to bed to let her sleep. He did exactly as she asked, and when Williams went to check on London, what she found surprised her.

Williams walked into the bedroom to see London asleep in her car seat, which had been placed on the bed. She was covered with a blanket, at least. You see, Cade had done exactly as Williams had asked. He’d “just put her in the bed,” without ever removing her from her car seat.

Williams couldn’t help but find the whole situation funny. “Literally, I walked out of the room to laugh because I didn’t want to wake her up,” Williams told Today. “I asked him, ”Really, dude?'” In fact, she found it so comical that she decided to post about it to Twitter. Her tweet has since gone viral, garnering over 40,000 retweets and over 100,000 likes.

Cade didn’t really understand what the big deal was. “He looked at me with the funniest facial expression, like he didn’t see why I was laughing,” Williams said to Today. “He said ‘What?'” He was just doing as he was told, after all.

Moms and dads proceeded to chime in on Twitter, some joining in on Williams’ laughter, while others shared similar stories:

Parents online know the struggles of getting a child to stay asleep once they’re removed from their car seat, so there are those who think this was a smart move, indeed:

There are others who are cracking up over how literally the dad took the words “just put her in the bed.”

Considering how tough it can be for a parent to get their child to bed, we might just consider this one a win?

There’s no denying how truly funny this is, and parents everywhere get it. As for us, we love when dads show off their major parenting skills and life-with-a-toddler hacks. Here’s to hoping there are even more moments—just like this one—to come.
