After going viral last year, this video of a man dealing with his paint-covered kids has been making the rounds again, probably because parental failure does not get old.

Although Mazzy and Harlow haven’t pulled off anything quite this epic (thank god), I totally know the feeling of trying to remain VERY SERIOUS and teach your kids REAL CONSEQUENCES when all you really want to do is bust out laughing at their ridiculous antics.

Also, this video reminds me that I should lock up all our paint in a steel vault somewhere in the Antarctic so my kids have no chance of finding it when I’m not looking.

I can only imagine what “downstairs” looks like.
