Every parent of a young child knows how difficult it is to get them to do everything at the same time. This mother raccoon appears to be dealing with the same problem at home.
Getting kids to sleep can be difficult, especially when they still want to play, as these rambunctious little raccoons do.
Nonetheless, it is time for bed, but it appears that these cubs are doing everything they can to avoid going to bed.
One is ready to flee and run around, while the others are dragging their feet to their burrow. The struggle is real, and this mother raccoon is all too aware of it.
A few years ago, YouTuber The Born Wandered captured this hilarious struggle between a mother raccoon and her babies.
In this clip, the mother raccoon can be seen charging the squad to their high-rise burrow
While the mother raccoon takes the first cub inside their house, the other cubs take a little detour and decide to stay outside for another moment
It was then the mother raccoon comes out of the burrow and yanked them one by one into their little nest
“Get in here,” the off-camera voice says while the mother takes a brief pause and stares at the camera
“This is so embarrassing,” is what the mother raccoon probably mutters since the scene is caught on camera
She then heads back to the burrow and uses her body to block the cheeky cubs from escaping
It is definitely not easy to be a parent but it seems like this mother raccoon has everything under her belt like a pro.
