I can totally understand how she felt. Despite her taking out time to come up with healthy meals three times a day for her children, the little monsters kept sneaking snacks to their room to avoid eating healthy food. How convenient.

This mom seems to be winning at motherhood during the quarantine. What do you guys think?
