Texas mom Desirae Robles was trying so hard to get her baby daughter to nap one morning when something truly unforgettable happened to her that had parents all over nodding and laughing in solidarity with her.
Desirae started playing with her little girl, whose name is Addelina, to see if she could get her to sleep. But when she picked her up, she only saw one thing flying at her face—baby spit-up. A whole lot of it, too.
And what did she do next? She decided to send a picture of her face, coated in spit-up, to her boyfriend Larry Estrada.
“It was one of the moments you can’t ever forget, so I had to send it to him to see," she said.
Have a baby they said, it'll be fun they said 🙃🙂😂 pic.twitter.com/hEjdTrEcfR— mama des ❤️💍 (@desssirae_) May 27, 2017
And of course, Larry found it hilarious.
"I love that she was calm enough to take a photo," he said.
And she was calm enough to share the pic of her face on Twitter, right next to a picture of her adorable daughter, perhaps looking a little too pleased with what she'd just done to her mother.
"It didn’t bother me," Desirae said. "She’s my daughter."
I had a wonderful 1st Mother's Day with my babies ❤️ Thank you for all the gifts baby, I loved everything 😘🙂 I love the both of y'all 😭💘 pic.twitter.com/7YApRsh4Rr— mama des ❤️💍 (@desssirae_) May 15, 2017
It's little wonder that this tweet went viral so quickly, racking up more than 132,000 likes and more than 32,000 retweets (and still counting!). Any parent will recognize exactly what that feeling is like. So why not acknowledge it by sharing their own "gross" moments with their own kids as well?
Luckily for us, that's exactly what some other hilarious parents on Twitter have been doing. And we just can't get enough of the hilarity (and the reality) of it all.
