Mom reminds herself to laugh through parenting

There's not much a parent can do sometimes than laugh. 

And if you are a parent, then you will understand. But, that's the thing with parenting, you get highs and lows, but one thing is consistent, the love for your kid only multiplies. 

Some might disagree but this mother who got a taste of a potty 'low' decided that laughing was a better bet than holding her head in dismay. 

In a video posted to TikTok, a mother showed her son standing on the couch holding his knees together as if he wanted to use the toilet. 

Mom caught the cue and told him to go to the toilet. 

The little boy obliged by listening, which was a win right there. But not without him leaving his mother a nice present.
