Time-Lapse Video of Mom Trying to Put Twins to Bed

Time-Lapse Video of Mom Putting Twins to Bed Will Make You Appreciate Your Routine

I've never met a mom who didn't want to scream, "Go the f*ck to sleep!" at least once in their child's toddler years — that's why the book was such a hit with parents everywhere! But Henriette Jonassen, a Norwegian mom of almost-3-year-old twins Leon and Nathaniel, deserves a signed, framed copy of the book. As she writes on her blog:

"A few days ago a friend suggested a bedtime routine for me, and I thought I should try it out. I've been having a hard time getting my twins to bed recently because of the heat and long, sunny days, and I thought I'd try something new. But I was pretty certain it wouldn't work, so I filmed it."

The resulting, time-lapse video of their current bedtime routine is like an Abbott and Costello video. Every time one goes down, the other pops up or sneaks away or dances in the doorway. It's nothing short of hysterical. As Henriette explains, in Summer months, the sun doesn't set until late (around 10 p.m.), so getting the boys to sleep requires a deviation from her normal routine. Let's just hope she rests up this Winter, when the sun is only out for five hours some days.
