Putting one child to bed is hard enough, but what about four little ones all under the age of two? One Canadian mom managed to pull it off—and captured the chaos in a video that’s going viral on Facebook.
Captioned “Mom vs. Triplets + Toddler,” the clip shows mom Corrie-Lynn Whyte wrangling her then eight-month-old triplets Olivia, Jackson, and Levi along with two-year-old daughter Emily. Somehow she’s able to get them all dressed in pajamas and ready for bed, despite a lot of jumping and crawling around.
“Emily does what she wants when she wants lol,” Whyte, who runs a blog called The Baby Gang about her family with husband Dan Gibson, said of the toddler who frequently runs off during the video before being corraled by her mom.
The time-lapse video, which was first posted in 2016, now has over 106 million views and nearly two million shares on Facebook alone. Many people commented how they were exhausted just watching the bedtime shenanigans. “You deserve a medal Corrie-Lynn. With a smile on your face the whole time too!!” wrote one viewer.
But all the hard work is worth it, the Ontario mom says. In an Instagram post about her triplets in November 2018, she wrote, “The challenges and work it takes with three is no secret, but the amount of love and happiness they bring into our lives overpowers all of that!”

And not to be outdone, Corrie’s husband decided to give bedtime duties a try in a follow-up video posted to the couple’s YouTube channel. With the caption, “IT’S DADS TURN! Watch this average dad compete with super mom,” the “sequel” proves dads can do it, too.
