Mom Films Herself Sleeping And Realizes Why She’s Always Tired
Being a mother of toddlers seems to come with a contract for exhaustion! However, one mother got tired of waking up worn-out without any seeming cause. She decided to set up a camera to capture whatever was disturbing her in the night.
A Young Mother’s Unexplained Exhaustion
Melanie Darnell is a fitness blogger and mother of three. The incredible mom is a vegan workout guru and has nearly 100,000 followers on her Instagram, @fitmomma4three. However, while Melanie leads a healthy lifestyle, she’s lately felt distressed over an unexplainable fatigue.
Although exercise and a healthy diet usually result in restful, deep sleep, Melanie hasn’t been reaping these benefits. In the past few weeks, she has found herself waking up groggy and weak most mornings. To try to figure out the reason for her exhaustion, Melanie decided to perform an interesting experiment!
Melanie’s Hidden-Camera Experiment
In order to get to the bottom of her unrestful sleep, Melanie set up a camera to record herself during the night. She wasn’t sure what she might find, but anything would be better than continuing to suffer without an explanation! When she reviewed the tape the next morning, she was hardly surprised at the root of her tiredness.
At first, the footage simply showed Melanie resting peacefully. However, around 10 p.m., her bed started to turn into a party! After grabbing one of her upset toddlers and snuggling up with them, the night began to take a turn toward chaos.
Her Hilarious, Relatable Discovery
In the video, Melanie is woken up several times by her eager, energetic children. From her hungry toddler to her hyper older child, the kids seemed to bug her until sunrise. It’s clear why the young mother struggles with tiredness in the morning. However, as exhausted as Melanie has been, she’s hardly upset with her disruptive kids!
“Parenting doesn’t end when the sun goes down,” she shared. “During these moments, let’s think of all of the other parents that are up with their babies at the very same middle-of-the-night moment and take comfort in the thought of each of us cradling our babies in the dark of our homes, together in shared experience.”
