No one can deny that moms have a tough job — especially moms of small children! They clean up messes and deal with crying and fighting on a regular basis. They should really get an award for not simply giving up.
2. 'A Normal Day'
The video, “A Normal Day” shows (you guessed it) a normal day from the perspectives of a mom and her young daughter, respectively. The mom in the video also has a baby.
This video was created by Esther Anderson in honor of Mother’s Day, and serves to show exactly how exhausting the duties of motherhood can be! Many believe that being a stay-at-home parent isn’t hard work, but that definitely isn’t true!
If you have a sibling then you can relate to this next scene: we see the toddler grabbing something from her baby sister, who starts crying. Mom then has to come break up the fight. How moms don’t lose their minds on a daily basis, we’ll never know!
And while Mom recalls clearly having a tough time getting her kids in their car seats, the toddler tells her dad that Mom gave them lots of kisses, and the camera cuts to Mom smiling after comforting the baby in the car.
The toddler ends by saying, “We had the best day ever!” Her favorite part of the day was having a “food fight” and hanging out on the floor with her mom after she dropped the cake. This is just too cute for words.
Kids are still learning and using their imaginations every day, and this video just goes to show how it’s the little things that moms do that count. It can be easy to forget this fact when adults go through every day in a boring routine!
This video obviously doesn’t give us the full run-down of parenthood, but it does give a brief summary of how difficult the job can be. It’s pretty admirable that parents can put up with small children who seemingly have endless amounts of energy!
