Dad checks his home security video – and discovers son’s nighttime antics

home security video footage

When we tuck our little ones in at night, many of us have come to expect delay tactics and possibly a visit through the night from a tiny bed hog.

But after checking home security cameras, one US dad has uncovered the hilarious middle-of-the-night hijinks of his youngest son.

Like most parents (aka The fun police), Cody Wray and his wife Becci have rules when it comes to how to treat their new furniture.

And it seems this has spurred their youngest Dylan’s rebellious side.

In the video footage, the energetic six-year-old can be seen jumping on and punching the lounges, flicking the lights on and off, cartwheeling and rolling around the lounge room.

“They both know not to climb on or jump on our new couches,” Becci wrote in response to some of the comments.

“Little turkey is lucky he’s cute!”

When the video originally posted to Facebook went viral, Cody decided to make it available on Youtube.

Here it is in all its delightful rambunctiousness:

“Looking through security footage when I found this event in the middle of the night in my living room. He’s so dead,” Cody wrote of his son’s antics in the caption.

“Evidently my six-year-old woke up in the middle of the night to have a fun time doing all the things we told him he wasn’t allowed to do. Jumping on the couches, cartwheels in the living room, playing with the lights. Little kid goes crazy at 2 am.”

As the comments began pouring in, Cody added the last image the camera captured during his son’s night time performance.

It seems Dylan wasn’t too worried about being caught.
