A mother captured a time-lapse video of herself sleeping during the night, which revealed the reason behind her waking up tired.
YouTube user Fitmomma uploaded the video on YouTube and showed how mothers have a crucial and tedious responsibility to tend to, which causes her to wake up tired the following day.
In the video, which was recorded one night when her husband was traveling for work, the mother-of-three is seen tending to the needs of her children all through the night, causing her to wake up several times over the night.
The video begins with the mother sleeping soundly on her bed. However, only a few moments later, she has to wake up and go somewhere off camera.

Moments later, she enters the room once again with a baby in her arms. She puts the baby beside her on the bed and then gets a few more moments of shuteye.
After a while, her baby starts to get restless and comes close to his mother, cuddling. Throughout the night, he is seen constantly changing positions and moving around, prompting the mother to wake up frequently and make her child go to sleep.
At one point in the video, another child of hers is seen approaching her in the bed. She then picks up her child and puts her in the bed alongside her other baby.
The second child sleeps on top of her mother, and she gets a chance to receive a few more moments of sleep.
After a while, she wakes up again to take her older child to his own bed, but not before aligning the pillows in the right manner so that the younger baby doesn’t fall off the bed.
She returns and gets some more sleep until the child sleeping with her decides to move again and touch the mother’s face.
