Potty training can be tiring – especially for the one being trained.
But one dad in Tennessee didn’t realize just how exhausted his one-year-old son was until he walked into the bathroom to find the young boy asleep in the toilet.
In the video, posted this month, a dad – who goes by the name of Chef P on Instagram – left his son on the toilet as he went to go make him some eggs.
Time for a nap: A one-year-old fell asleep on the toilet while being potty trained by his father
Thanks a lot dad! The toddler, who fell into the toilet bowl after his dad went to make him some breakfast, didn’t appear too pleased over being woken up
The man explained that his son’s potty training seat had been left at the babysitter’s house, so he had to resort to desperate measures in order to continue the toddler’s bathroom lessons.
So, he decided to give his son the chance to use a real toilet, and put the young boy safely on the seat, before going to make him some eggs in the kitchen.
But when he came back to check on him, instead of being welcomed by a bathroom victory, the man found his son fast asleep in the toilet.
In the hilarious clip, the dad can then be seen walking up to the young boy – who had sunk completely into the toilet bowl and was totally oblivious to his surroundings.

Dad and son: The toddler looks energized as he gets ready to run into his dad’s arms
After filming his son for a few moments, the dad decides that he has had a long enough nap and wakes him up.
The dad says ‘Junior’ in a jarring voice which does the trick and awakens the sleeping toddler.
But it appears that Junior could have gotten a little bit more sleep as upon waking up, he looks disoriented and confused.
The toddler is still on the toilet when the video cuts off and the dad can be heard in the background chuckling and probably making a mental note to remember is potty training seat.
