Chris Pratt is in the middle of a whirlwind tour to promote the upcoming premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. While superstardom may not be relatable to everyone, parenting kids in the middle of the night is definitely something every mom and dad can relate to. Read on to check out the experience Pratt posted about on Instagram at 3am that every sleep-deprived parent will recognize.
Accompanying an Instagram pic of Pratt and his wife, Anna Farris, on a press tour for the film, was a caption with his hilarious description of the reason he was posting at 3am. “My dear sweet @annafaris getting flashbacks from her hilarious role in Lost in Translation,” he wrote. “Thank you for the support honey! You look so beautiful,” Pratt wrote before explaining that, although he is grateful to have her and their 4-year-old son Jack along for the press tour, it can have some disadvantages in the sleep department.
“Although it’s 3:00am right now, I was just awakened by a square kick to the back as little man climbed into bed and then must have had a karate dream or something and now I can’t sleep. I’m on insta instead. All you dads and moms know what I’m talking about.” The post has received over 460,000 likes to date, because indeed, every parent does know exactly what he’s talking about.
