Being a mom is a stressful, full-time job. And many moms also work a full-time job outside of the home! Working, cleaning, cooking, doing laundry, and driving kids around all over town can leave a woman mentally drained. And I’m guessing that’s what happened here. A mom is going viral for forgetting to pack her own clothes for a family vacation.

Amanda Ayala, @herky_jerk_ranch on TikTok, has racked up over 4 million views with her recent video about her family’s vacation. According to MSN, the mom of two girls made sure that the kids had everything they needed for their week-long camping trip. Between packing for her girls and making sure the family had all the camping necessities needed for a week at a Kansas state park, she totally forgot to pack her own clothes!

After taking her two daughters to a bath house at the campground to shower, Ayala dressed them in pajamas. That’s when she realized she didn’t pack any clothes for herself. She walks to the car, where her husband is waiting, in a towel.

Luckily, this mom has a great sense of humor and decided to share her ‘mom moment’ on TikTok. Other moms totally relate to her situation. Some made some rude comments about her husband, asking why he doesn’t help more. Ayala explains that they have an equal partnership and that he packed his things. She just forgot to pack hers.

I’m not a mom however I realize how difficult it is. Moms are incredible and their strength is never ending!  I hope Ayala got a new wardrobe and enjoyed her family vacation!
