I never thought I was an introvert…until I became a parent. Then, I went from a girl who never had much pleasure in being alone to a woman who JUST WANTED TO BE BY HERSELF FOR FIVE FREAKING MINUTES, IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK? Oops, I slipped into some flashbacks there…sorry. 🙂 Maybe that’s why this 34-second video from mom of quadruplets (QUADRUPLETS!!) Ashley Gardner cracked me up SO HARD.
Needing a few seconds alone, Gardner shut herself in her pantry and decided to share her blissful 34 seconds of alone time with the Internetz. And, I will admit, I am SO glad she did! It’s nice to know I’m not alone in wanting to be alone, can you feel me!?!?
The best part is Gardner munching on some licorice as she films, explaining that she “desperately needed a treat to make it through the night” with her kids. (So I’m ALSO not alone in having a secret candy stash just for mama!) WHY would Gardner need a break from her little blessings, you might ask??
Well…one look under the pantry door sums it up nicely. And sums up MOTHERHOOD nicely, for that matter.
Thanks for sharing, Ashley! I hope that licorice was as good as it looks!
