A Mom Recorded Herself At Night To Show What Sleeping Looks Like For Parents And It's So Real, It Makes Me Want To Cry

    Sleep? Never heard of it.

    I think it's universally known that parents don't get a whole lot of sleep. But to really understand it, you have to experience it.

    A video of what sleeping with kids is like made by Melanie Darnell recently resurfaced on Twitter and it's no surprise it's going viral with over six thousand shares and one million views.

    Mom life: Is this how your nights go? 📹 https://t.co/MsXQgKUEuz

    The video was originally shared on Melanie's YouTube channel Fit Momma where it has almost three million views.

    The video starts off with Melanie getting in bed alone at 10 p.m.

    But then an hour and twenty minutes later, her baby wakes up.

    She is unsuccessful as she tries to get the baby to sleep.

    The baby decides to crawl around.

    And the baby sits up and try to get Melanie to wake up.

    And proceeds to wiggle all over her.

    Then...you guessed it! Her other kid wakes up and comes in to keep everyone company.

    So, now Melanie is trying to get two kids to sleep.

    Finally, at 1:30 a.m., the baby passes out and she takes her toddler back to their room.

    And then the baby passed out like this and I think it looks like a dog at a glance so I took a screenshot.

    And the two slept for a good few minutes.

    But then the baby decided to braid Melanie's hair.

    And she was not having it.

    Fast forward to 6:20 a.m. and the baby is awake again.

    And Melanie starts her day.

    So, go call your mom and tell her thanks for literally everything.

    BuzzFeed has reached out to Melanie for comment.
