Why This Mom Is Urging Dads Everywhere to "Take the God D*mn Photo"

Video of Dad Racing Mom to Put Triplets and Toddler to Bed

You'll Be Shocked at the Simple Trick This Dad Used to Get Triplets and a Toddler to Bed Faster Than Mom

If you're a parent who frequents the Internet, you've probably already seen the time-lapse video of a mom getting her triplet babies and her toddler ready for bed. As exhausting as it was just to view it, we were mighty impressed with how Corrie-Lynn Whyte kept her cool while racing to get her crawling, jumping, and rolling kids dressed. Now the dad, Dan Gibson, takes his turn — and he raised the stakes by challenging his wife to a race.

She managed to get all four little ones snapped into their pajamas in just over two minutes. When Dan got to work in his own version of the now-viral time-lapse video, he used a very clever trick to shave 13 seconds off Corrie-Lynn's record. What was his secret?

Aside from the fact that Dad very likely let their 2-year-old sneak a few sugar cookies before Mom's trial (that toddler's rambunctious bed-jumping in the initial video was the most adorable form of birth control we've witnessed), his winning tactic is one any parent can use at home: He opted for zippered onesies, while she spent precious time dressing the tots in sleepers with laborious buttons and snaps.

Well played, Dad.
