Mom Feels Validated After Capturing Childless Brother’s Hysterical Reaction to Babysitting Her Toddler

Moms: This should feel super satisfying.

Parents know that you never truly experienced exhaustion until you have kids. That isn’t to say that childless people don’t know what it feels like to be tired, but is a whole different kind of sleepy. As much as you love them, kids can drain you down to empty. It’s something parents more or less conquer, fueled solely by the deepest love imaginable. 

But that doesn’t mean it isn’t validating for it to be acknowledged that it can be hard. One mom got that sweet confirmation when she asked her brother to watch her daughter. it was only a half hour before he called her to come pick her up.  


Hysterically the mom shows footage of her daughter running around in circles when she pans to her brother who is splayed out on the floor in exhaustion. 

“My siblings are so scared to have kids because they see how active Lily [her daughter] is,” the mom captioned the video. 

“I watched my friends five year old for three afternoons in a row, wrote another. “I will get out of bed in a few weeks”

Being a parent is one of the hardest yet most rewarding experiences of life. While we wouldn’t trade it all for a little longer sleep, ane dtra nap here and there would help.
