A father has been applauded for sacrificing a good night's sleep for the benefit of his wife.
On February 10, a woman named Eden Kim posted a TikTok video in which she revealed that ever since her youngest child, Ezra, was born, her husband has been intent on her getting her much-needed eight hours of sleep.
This means that he normally only gets about four hours of sleep each night.
In the video, she explains his reasoning for the gesture. He told her: "There are so many burdens you carry that I could not. All the burdens of pregnancy, birth, recovery, breastfeeding. Lack of sleep and late nights with the baby is the only burden I can take from you. So why in the world would I not?"Check out the sweet video here:
Needless to say, there were plenty of comments praising Kim's husband for his thoughtfulness and selflessness.
One person wrote: "My husband is the exact same way. Grateful is an understatement."
Another said: "never lose him!!!!! you definitely got a winner."
A third commented: "i’m so glad you are supported, growing and sustaining a baby is a huge task. So pleased your mental health is protected."
A fourth shared: "My husband offered sth similar but he has to work everyday and I’d be too scared of him getting into a car accident due to tiredness. I get about 6hrs."[[imagecaption|| Credit: Eden Kim / TikTok (@edenkimofficial)]] [[imagecaption|| Credit: Eden Kim / TikTok (@edenkimofficial)]] [[imagecaption|| Credit: Eden Kim / TikTok (@edenkimofficial)]]
In a later video, Kim responded to a comment praising her husband, saying that not only is he being incredibly supportive to his wife and spending quality time with his kids, but he's also showing them how important teamwork is in a relationship.
The commenter said this will help them learn to be compassionate partners if they have their own families one day, and Kim assured her audience she will speak up in the event that her little ones ever disrespect their partners in the future.
She said: "I see too many moms making excuses for their full grown sons and putting undeserved blame on the partner."
