Mom Sums Up Motherhood in 34 Seconds

Woman Sums Up Motherhood in Just 34 Hilarious Seconds

"They don't ever go away. They want everything you have."

In just 34 seconds, Ashley Gardner, mother of quadruplet girls, perfectly sums up the essence of motherhood while hiding from her kids inside a pantry. Chewing on a Twizzler, Ashley explains that her husband was out shoveling the driveway, and that she desperately needed a treat to get through the rest of her night (to the sound of whining children in the background). "So I'm hiding in the pantry, eating a treat," she says. "Is that wrong?"

As she continues to enjoy her treat, she points the camera down to the floor, where a small child's face appears through the crack under the door. "She's always there," Ashley says, as her daughter quickly responds with a gleeful "Hi!"

Yup, that sounds about right.
