Anyone who has raised a child – or is currently raising a child – knows that putting a child to sleep is a lot like going to war. For whatever reason, the last thing most children ever want to do is go to sleep. Even when a child is tired it is not uncommon for the child to scream and cry in protest (largely because they are tired) instead of just giving up and going to sleep.
While most parents will opt for silently tiptoeing out of the room, one mother – caught on video – decided to escape from her son’s nursery after putting him to sleep the way only a certified Navy SEAL would, per POP Sugar. The video capturing the mother sliding out of her son’s nursery on her back after putting him to sleep has since gone viral, because the internet not only understands the mother’s struggle, but they find the video hilarious.
Caryn Morris – the mother captured in the video – finally got her 15-month-old son to go to sleep. She immediately activated what POP Sugar is describing as “beast mode,” and slid out of her son’s nursey on her back. The entire time, this mother had one thing on her mind: do not wake baby Brody up.

Tyrone Morris – her husband – reminded the internet how much we love baby monitor cameras when he shared the video of his wife sliding across the floor on her back to get out of her baby’s room after putting him to sleep. If you haven’t seen the video of the mother escaping her son’s nursery by sliding out on her back yet, you can watch the video below.
“The best thing about having cameras in your house is watching your wife trying to exit the room after putting your son down!!” Tyrone wrote on in a post on Facebook. “Sometimes you have to use your initiative for your exit!! P.S. The SA Army are calling me for you to do training on the reverse leopard crawl!!”
