As every parent knows, once you have a baby, bedtime is never the same again.
But no one has ever demonstrated that struggle quite as well as Cambridge, Ont. mom Corrie-Lynn Whyte. She recently posted a video to Facebook showing what it’s like to get three 8-month-old babies and a toddler ready for bed at the same time. Needless to say, it’s just as hard as you likely expect.
In the video, you can see that as Whyte dresses one baby on the bed, the others all run amok. Some roll around, one of them starts jumping on the bed–literally anything to make the job harder than it needs to be. Fortunately for this mom though, she seems to have parenting down to a fine science.
“Sometimes there’s times when all three of them are crying at the same time wanting to eat,” Whyte said. “So I just put them in a chair and focus on one and go to the next.” You can listen to their entire interview in the clip below:
Since posting the video, which has so far been viewed more than 56 million times, Whyte says she’s received calls and messages from all over the world, with many of the strangers calling her a “supermom”. You can watch the whole thing yourself at the top of the article.
