Being a parent is hard. You don't get much sleep. You're constantly on the go. Most times you can't even remember what day of the week it is. One mom was so worn out she drove to school but forgot her kids at home.

Instead of getting upset, the mother shared her struggles of parenthood by laughing at herself. "I'm taking the kids to school and I don't even have them in the car. I can't believe I left my kids at home. Oh my God, I'm such an idiot," she laughs in a video that has quickly gone viral with close to 4 million views. Guess she's not the only one with parent problems.

So how did the kids react when mom finally returned? Same way mom did...with laughter.

Can't say I've ever forgot my child but I have forgotten many things, many times - a game, a teacher meeting, a recital, something for the school bake sale. We've all been there. We just don't all react the same when it happens. Maybe if we spend more time laughing at ourselves and less time trying to be perfect, we'll be happier parents....or people for that matter.
