We couldn’t begin to count the number of times we have given our kids a bath and washed their clothes … only to have to do it all over again minutes later because they had just spilled juice on themselves, rubbed yogurt on their face, or rolled in dirt. Esther Anderson feels our pain. The mom who brought us “Why Co-Sleeping Is No-Sleeping,” shared the video above on her blog, Story of This Life, and it’s since gone viral — amassing over 440,000 views on YouTube and 1.8 million shares on Facebook in just two days.
After moving to Tampa, Florida and watching her 15-month-old daughter Ellia grow from a baby to a tot, she (like the rest of us) realized just how much harder is to get anything done!
“Once I was sitting on my couch at the end of the day and I said, ‘What did I do today?’ Did I get anything done?,'” she told ABC News. “That day, she [Ellia] was following me around and I said ‘other moms definitely go through this,’ so I just set up the camera.”
Watch the video above as Esther attempts to get household chores done while her daughter immediately undoes her progress. Sometimes being a parent feels like the ultimate struggle — but sometimes, you just gotta laugh.
