The google definition of zonked as a verb is “1. Hit or strike 2. Fall or cause to fall suddenly and heavily asleep or lose consciousness” (February 7, 2017).
I love my older boy’s ability to zonk out, it has never been a trait I could master. However, he has fallen asleep chewing pizza, slept through me fishing the bit of food out of his mouth, and then moving him from point A to bed. In this particular pizza sleeping incident point A was a bumbo chair and we went out the front door and down the street to our house where I deposited him in bed.
ZZZ is defined by google as “a sound used to suggest the sound of sleeping or snoring. A comic book showing someone sleeping with a speech bubble overhead is an example of ZZZ” (February 7, 2017).
There have been so many of these priceless zonked out moments. Do you have any to share?
