A baby’s first Christmas can is an important milestone—but if you’ve ever raised a child, you know there is so much potential for disaster when you throw Christmas decorations into the mix.
Esther Anderson, the mom behind the Story of This Life YouTube channel, perfectly demonstrates the struggles of parenthood during the holiday season in an adorable video that she recently posted. With over 2 million views so far, it’s safe to say it’s resonating with exhausted parents all over the globe.
To sum up the three-minute video: Things probably won’t go as planned, so don’t expect your little nugget to give her best smile for your family Christmas card. Oh, and don’t worry too much about those presents—the tots seem to like the box better than the actual gift anyways!
Even though that chubby-cheeked angel might tip over a glass of Santa’s milk or ruin your Christmas decorations, you can’t help but squeeze ’em a little tighter this season, knowing that life is better now with the little kiddo in your life!
