Under a picture of a wooden box he posted on Instagram, Mark, 34, explained its function. “Being a mom is hard, and since we’ve had kids Priscilla has had a hard time sleeping through the night,” he wrote.

He and his wife of almost 7 years share two children — daughters Maxima, 3, and August, 18 months.

“She’ll wake up and check the time on her phone to see if the kids might wake up soon, but then knowing the time stresses her out and she can’t fall back asleep,” Mark continued.

“I worked on building her what I call the ‘sleep box.’ It sits on her nightstand, and between the hours of 6-7am it emits a very faint light — visible enough that if she sees it she'll know it's an okay time for one of us to get the kids, but faint enough that the light won't wake her up if she's still sleeping,” he explained. “And since it doesn't show the time, if she wakes up in the middle of the night, she knows to just go back to sleep without having to worry about what time it is.”

Mark also called the project a true labor of love. He wrote, “As an engineer, building a device to help my partner sleep better is one of the best ways I can think of to express my love and gratitude.
