Mother Shares Brutally Honest Overnight Time-Lapse Video

ADVERTISEMENT

“Parenting doesn’t end when the sun goes down.” These are the words of a Social influencer and a mom-of-three Melanie Darnell.

Melanie gained her following by sharing her experiences of how to be a great mom and stay fit at the same time. Currently, she has over 87k followers on Instagram and lately the number has been rapidly growing because of one video she shared that close to every parent was able to relate.

After 10 months of waking up tired, Melanie decided to do an experiment. She duct taped a camera to the ceiling above her bed and filmed her night.

The video reveals the reality of parenting – you are never done parenting and if the baby needs you, you don’t have a choice but to get up and attend your child.

Many people loved the honesty of the video and the message that Melanie shared. “My hope was moms around the world could take comfort in knowing at the very same middle-of-the-night moment each of us is cradling our babies in the dark of our homes, together in this shared experience of motherhood.”

You can find the brutally honest video below.

I don't get it. Why are so many new parents today acting like they invented parenthood? Parents have been sleep deprived for millions of years, get over yourselves, people.

It's more about the fact that there's so much parent shaming about different ways to raise your kids that more parents are posting about the actual struggles of parenthood instead of acting like everything is picture perfect.

I can make the same video with some cats. The trick is not to let them into your bedroom.

co-sleeping as their proponents and opponents and is a personal decision. It is not neccesarily a bad idea, but ensuring that you are well rested enough to be a good parent at the next day surely is a strong argument.
