This Mesmerizing Viral Video Shows a Supermom in Action
By Nina Bahadur
Getting four toddlers ready for bed isn't easy.
26-year-old Corrie Whyte has a two-year-old daughter and eight-month-old triplets. And a video of this Ontario mom getting this crew of toddlers ready for bed has gone viral, because her skills are insane. Can you imagine the kind of dexterity it takes to get four wiggling babies into clean onesies, using only two hands? While stopping some of the more adventurous kiddos from crawling (or bouncing) away? This video is exhausting just to watch, but this mom handles it with a smile.
The video, shared on the family’s Facebook page, The Baby Gang, has been viewed over 49 million times at the time of writing.
Whyte told ABC News she has “so much fun” dealing with her kids Emily, Jackson, Olivia, and Levi, and says that she wouldn’t be able to do it without her partner, Dan Gibson.
"Right now the hard part is finding the balance between the needs of three 8-month-old babies and one 2-year-old toddler," she said. "They all want your attention, while going in four different directions."
Whyte and Gibson conceived the triplets naturally. Gibson told BuzzFeed that he thought Whyte was joking when she shared the news that they’d soon be a family of six.
"I did not believe her, I thought she was pulling my leg," he said.
The pair blog about their life raising four kids under the age of three on their Facebook page and a blog. On the blog, they share anecdotes along with tips and tricks on topics like finding time to workout and how to make simple, healthy, kid-friendly meals.
Whyte and Gibson have both said that they’re glad their video has gone viral and brought joy to others, but that they celebrate all parents.
"[Whyte says] every mom is a super mom and I agree with her," Gibson said.
