On Wednesday, maternal goddess Kim Kardashian took to Instagram to champion the unsung heroes in all our lives: moms. Tired of being unappreciated, the mother of New York Fashion Week’s hottest toddler reposted an image lamenting the trials and tribulations of being “just a mom.”


Well, blogger Esther Anderson must have heard Kim’s cries for more maternal acknowledgement, because on Thursday the YouTuber posted a video called “Why moms get NOTHING done.” The clip offers a glimpse into the daily life of a busy parent, who finds all of her hard work undone by her adorable yet mischievous daughter. The video has clearly resonated with moms all over the Internet: Since Anderson posted it on Facebook, it’s gotten more than 59 million views.

As soon as clothes are clean and baths are given, Ellia is fast at work dirtying herself and her outfits once again. But with a face that cute, how can you manage to stay mad?
