Oh you parents of multiples, I don’t know how you do it! Putting one toddler to bed is a challenge itself, but putting two to bed is downright exhausting! Henriette Jonassen is a Norwegian mother of twins who decided to take a video of her struggles putting her twin toddlers to bed. The mom wrote on her YouTube page that thanks to the late sunset and warmer summer weather, putting the kids to bed has been a bit of a struggle. She also said that while the boys normally share a room she thought she’d try them out in separate rooms.
I’ve been struggeling with getting my twins asleep for a few weeks now (due to extremely hot weather and long, sunny days), and I’ve tried different methods. This one was definitely the worst one! But it gave me a good laugh tho.
And BTW: they have always shared room, I just thought I’d try something different for a few days, and it turned out to be a bad idea.
She also wrote on her blog that the summer weather was the cause for the change in routine writing, ‘normally, I would put them to bed, sing a few songs while tickeling their backs and close the door behind me. That worked out great, and they usually felt asleep within 30 minutes. But that changed.’
After watching this video I’d say that Henriette and all you other parents of multiples deserve an award! Or at least one good night’s sleep! Check out this hilarious video and let me know if you can relate!
