Video catches twin toddlers partying past bedtime

Twin brothers had no interest in staying in bed one night, and their antics were all caught on video monitors.

“Today” reported that the pair was caught on a Nest home monitoring system set up by their parents,  Jonathan and Susana Balkin, who wondered what their 2-year-old toddlers were up to when they were supposed to be in bed.

"We heard a whole bunch of giggling, so we started spying on them," Jonathan Balkin said on the morning show Monday.

Video shows Andrew and Ryan Balkin hopping in and out of their cribs, jumping and laying on the love seat in their room and piling up pillows and couch cushions.

"We ended up spying on them for a little while on the camera just to make sure they weren't getting into trouble," Jonathan Balkin said. "Then after a while we decided, OK, it's time to intervene and put them to bed. That didn't really work out so well."

The boys’ dad said that the pair have escaped a few times before.

“People we know that we haven’t seen in years have seen it in their respective country,” Susana Balkin said. “It’s been overwhelming, but full of love.”

“They sleep in their beds really well, so we are exploring toddler beds,” Jonathan Balkin said. “We did change it so you can take off one of those walls, and they just ended up going in and out all night. So the cribs are good for now. Maybe by the summer time, we’ll switch it up.”

Watch the family talk about their viral video below.

  • German linguists have declared the phrase “alternative facts,” popularized by White House aide Kellyanne Conway, the non-word of 2017. Conway used the phrase last year when asked why President Donald Trump’s then-Press Secretary Sean Spicer mischaracterized the size of the inauguration crowd. A team of six language experts at Darmstadt University chose “alternative facts” from among 684 suggestions. German news agency dpa quoted the head of the panel as saying Tuesday the phrase represents the growing practice of “replacing factual arguments with claims that cannot be proven.” Each year the panel singles out a phrase that runs counter to the principles of democracy or human dignity. Last year it chose the German term “Volksverraeter,” roughly “traitor to one’s people,” used by far-right groups to label politicians who they disagree with.
  • Still battling over what President Donald Trump did – or didn’t – say during a tense White House immigration meeting last week with lawmakers, Senators used a hearing with the Homeland Security Secretary on Tuesday to publicly appeal for compromise on DACA and a series of politically difficult immigration issues, as one Republican urged the President to “close this deal.” “This has turned into a S-show,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), as Graham blamed aides at the White House “who have an irrational view on immigration” for the current impasse. “If the President is watching, I’m still in the phone book,” Graham added, as he told both parties and Mr. Trump must give a little in order to reach a deal. Questioning Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Graham voiced frustration at the “Tuesday Trump” and the “Thursday Trump” from last week, indicating that he believes more conservative Republicans had intervened to scuttle a bipartisan immigration compromise that had been worked out by a group of six Senators. Sen. Lindsey Graham: Trump understood that immigration reform had to be done with compassion, but something changed in a short period of time. “I don’t where that guy went, I want him back” https://t.co/LQshZ9pJqz — CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) January 16, 2018 Other Republicans on Tuesday echoed Graham’s call for compromise on the nearly 700,000 Dreamers, who were spared the threat of deportation under the Obama Administration, but saw that rescinded in September by President Trump. “We should push for the best deal we can get, but we shouldn’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), as he warned Democrats they would not get a ‘clean’ DACA bill to help illegal immigrant Dreamers. But Hatch also warned Republicans they couldn’t ask for everything as well. The hearing provided new details on how the President had suddenly raised the amount of money he wanted to build a border wall in the heated immigration talks last Thursday – as the original request had been for $1.6 billion. “Is the President realistic when he says he wants $20 billion so he can build the wall in one year?” asked Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) at a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee. “I think the President is encouraging us to go as quickly as we can,” answered Secretary Nielsen, who said Mr. Trump also wanted to close a variety of loopholes in immigration law, to dissuade people to come to the U.S. illegally. Durbin says Trump wanted a one-year appropriation of $20 billion to build 722 miles of wall along the U.S. / Mexico border. DHS chief does not dispute this figure. Durbin says this is Trump's demand in exchange for DACA. — Damian Paletta (@damianpaletta) January 16, 2018 While Durbin said a bipartisan agreement presented to the President last week fulfilled Mr. Trump’s demands on a number of fronts, Nielsen made clear it was not acceptable to the Trump Administration. “I cannot agree to a deal that does not give the tools and resources to the men and women of Homeland Security to do the job you have asked them to do,” Nielsen told Durbin at a different point in their ten minute back and forth. “We gave you every penny you asked for,” Durbin countered. “We need the wall, too. The wall works,” Nielsen. “It’s part of border security.” Durbin also explored the details of the meeting from last week on what exactly the President had said, pressing Nielsen – who was under oath – on what she heard. In exchanges with several Democratic Senators, Nielsen repeatedly said she had not heard the words, “shithole” or “shithouse,” as she said lawmakers and the President were expressing very passionate feelings about the immigration negotiations. “Other profane words – I don’t think they were appropriate either, and they were not used by the President,” Nielsen told Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN). “I actually was struck more by the fact that the conversation – although passionate and appropriately so – had gotten to a place where many people in the room were using inappropriate language in the Oval Office in front of the President. That’s what struck me,” Nielsen said. After over two hours of testimony – and being asked about the issue repeatedly – Nielsen deflected questions from other Democrats on the matter, saying she had said all that should could about the matter. In other immigration news, Nielsen told lawmakers there is an ongoing surge in illegal crossings of the Mexican border in recent months, as the feds have noted a definite increase in both unaccompanied children and families trying to make it into the United States. 30 percent increase in unaccompanied minors arriving at US border in the last few months and an 68 percent increase in family units, according to Sec. Nielsen of @DHS. — Julio Ricardo Varela (@julito77) January 16, 2018 “It’s a big problem,” Nielsen said, as the surge is a turn around from a big drop that occurred during the early months of the Trump Administration. As for the unfinished DACA deal, Nielsen said her staffers had still been working with Senators to try and bridge the gap on a possible deal, as one veteran Republican urged all sides to compromise. But the chances for a deal seemed to be much worse now than a week ago, when the President in a Tuesday meeting had told lawmakers to do all they could to reach an immigration agreement.

  • A young boy after being scratched by a bat, according to Christian Academy school officials in Eustis, Florida. >> Watch the news report here The school posted about the boy’s death on its website, saying that he attended the school in 2016. The post said Ryker Roque “was a quiet boy adored by teachers and classmates.” Henry Roque, Ryker's father, took a video of the two on a fishing trip and said they were as close as father and son could be.  He shared pictures and videos of his son with WFTV to share with the world how much he loved his son. As Ryker underwent an experimental procedure for the rabies infection, Henry held out hope, even as doctors told the family he had virtually no chance of surviving.  >> Read more trending news  'I've seen huge miracles before. And I went back on the bed and laid with him and held him and said, 'Ryker, miracles happen every day. I know you hear me,'' Henry said.  Several weeks ago, Henry said he found a sick bat, which he did not know had rabies, and put it in a bucket, telling Ryker not to touch it. But Ryker did touch it and was scratched by the bat – but seemed fine, school officials said. A week later, the child lost use of his legs and “experienced confusion,” having hallucinations and convulsions. Ryker was hospitalized and an experimental treatment was used, but he died Sunday. >> On WFTV.com: Florida teacher donates kidney to student's mother The school held a fundraiser to help the family with medical expenses. 'He was a very sweet boy. Everything he did was nice. The kids loved to play with him because he was the kindest kid,' said Connor Jenkins, with the Christian Academy preschool.  A GoFundMe account was also set up for the family.
