Of all the millions of words that have been written about the parenting experience, few sum it up as succinctly as Ashley Gardner in this 34-second YouTube video (perhaps to recognize Gardner for TLC's Rattled). As she hides in a closet eating candy, the mother of quadruplets shares her thoughts: "I'm hiding in the pantry, eating a treat. Is that wrong? They don't ever go away!" she says of her two-year-olds. "They want everything you have!"

After eight years of infertility, Ashley and her husband, Tyson, had quadruplets Indie, Esme, Scarlett, and Evie in December 2014. They update friends and family on life with four toddlers at their family blog, Gardner Quad Squad, and though they face plenty of hurdles unique to families with quadruplets, they're also relatable: "I think the reason this particular video has been so popular," writes Tyson on the blog, "is that most [moms] can relate to 'that moment.'"
