Mom shares the reality of having 2 boys under 2 years old: ‘Not for the faint of heart’

Having two children under 2 is its own kind of special. Sure, the pair of siblings will likely always be super close, but at what cost to mom and dad

TikTok mom @tiffanyjean1507 shared her expectation versus the reality of having two boys under 2, and it’s hilarious. While there’s no shortage of precious moments between the brothers, well, there’s also quite a bit of conflict.

“How we thought having boys 17 months apart would be,” the mom wrote in the video caption

The first clip of her boys showed them sweetly cuddling together on the couch. Her youngest was dozing off in the lap of his big brother. It was adorable. 

“Versus how it’s going,” the second caption read

Then footage cut to a second clip, and the difference was night and day. The older brother was (playfully) strangling his younger brother and shoving him around. There was no love lost between the boys.

“Having two under 2 is not for the faint of heart, and we’re gonna try three under 3,” the mom added

The hilarious video racked up 1.4 million views on TikTok. People couldn’t help but laugh in the face of such chaos. 

When a user in the comments asked why the mom expected anything else, she replied, “That’s actually a very good point. LOL. I should have expected total chaos.” 

“He just wanted to tell him that he was first in the family. Just a friendly reminder,” someone joked

“Bestie, that’s literally how the Bible starts,” another wrote

“I saw this episode of Criminal Minds before,” a person said
