Ingenious dad challenges kids to draw him sleeping so he can nap

A Colorado father came up with an ingenious idea that would allow him to nap while simultaneously keeping his four children entertained.

The mother of the four kids, Monica Weber, explained in a now-viral Facebook post that she had gone to the shops to get some groceries, with the understanding that her husband Michael would look after the kids. Only when she came back, she found him fast asleep on the couch while the kids sat quietly and well-behaved as they drew their dad.

It turns out that Michael, desperate for a bit of shut-eye, asked his kids to draw him while he "posed" on the couch.

Alongside a photo of her husband sleeping on the couch, Monica wrote:

"'I'll keep the kids so you can grocery shop in peace' ....then I come home to this. 

I'm pretty sure he's the most brilliant man I've ever known. He has them doing "realism art" while he "poses" AKA naps. The winner gets a chocolate, but let's be honest, @michael.w.weberjr is the one winning lmao

Nice one Michael, nice one!"

A Virginia father made his son Hayden run to school in the rain after learning that he had been bullying other children:

The post has since garnered 27k reactions and 10k comments, with many commending the dad for his ingenious trick.

One wrote: "Wow my kids would totally fall for this and sit there for hours," while another added: "This guy has blocked fatherhood".

A third directed this message at their partner: "When you ask how come our son always behaves for me but not for you... this is the kinda s**t I'm pulling."

One clever dad from Capim Gross in Brazil decided the only way to get his baby to drink from a bottle was to ''disguise'' himself as the child's mother and ''breastfeed'' the little one:
