Any parent who has managed to get their child to stay in bed after they've been tucked in deserves the highest of awards. Plain and simple. For some unknown reason, whether they're 2 or 12, kids will find any reason to get out of bed. So instead of settling in for the night, parents will find themselves bustling to finally, once and for all, get that child under the covers. But for one mom of multiples, the struggle is way too real and we can't help but sympathize. A Norwegian mother of twin toddler boys recently recorded a time lapse video of their bedtime routine, and you won't believe her patience.
Take a look below. The hilarious clip will leave you cringing:
If it's not one, it has to be the other. It's like they're perfectly rotating and taking turns to disturb their poor ol' mom.
They figure out how to get out of bed, walk over to the door, and pop out. And one has even managed to escape the room completely. Nice job, boys.

But honestly, what parent can't relate? It might seem frustrating (and honestly, nightmarish), but the bedtime battle persists in practically every single household. You can't really control how the kiddos feel at the end of the day, especially if they don't want the day to be over. All you can do is keep going and hope that this time, they'll finally settle in, while remembering you are NOT alone in hoping that eventually they just go the f#*k to sleep!
What is bedtime like at your home?
