This Mother Perfectly Sums Up Parenting In just 34 Seconds

RealClear Staff


Because sometimes you just have to lock yourself in a room to escape from your kids.

It's ironic that one of the most difficult jobs on the planet is one that rewards no compensation. Saying that parenting is tough is the understatement of the century. That baby comes out and boom, that's your entire life for the next 18 years. And unless you gave birth to a literal angel, you're in for some tough times ahead.

This mother of quadruplets (yes, you read that correctly) knows the struggle better than anyone else. She probably hasn't experienced silence since giving birth to her wonderful daughters, and she decided that she really just needed a minute to herself while her husband was out shoveling the driveway.

Naturally, she shut herself in the pantry and ate all of the licorice that she could before having to take on the world of parenting once again. Can you blame her? And just when you think she actually has a moment alone,'ll just have to watch the end of the video. 

You can keep up with these parents of quadruplets on their FB page, A Miracle Unfolding - Gardner Quadruplets.
