YOUR child suddenly announcing that they need to go to the toilet at an inopportune moment is a struggle all parents will already be familiar with. Right?
But one parent has been left rather red in the face after her eight-year-old son inadvertently gatecrashed a video she was filming by POOING in the background.
New Zealand blogger and fitness coach Elise Niu filmed a short Instagram video giving her 6,000 followers an update on her bootcamp training programme last month.
But while the mum-of-four is instructing her followers on their specific diet and exercise requirements from with her back facing the window, one of her sons is seen frantically racing into the shot outside.
As his mum is advising fitness fans on what they should eat for breakfast, her son suddenly pulls down his pants and starts squatting behind her – blissfully unaware that he’s being filmed.
After doing his business, the boy – who has then clocked on to the fact that his mum is nearby – then bashfully backs away before disappearing into the bushes.
Luckily for him, Elise saw the funny side of incident and shared the hilarious clip on her Instagram page.
She wrote: “Dear Bootcamper crew watching this video…
“Please ignore the 8-year-old in the background taking a s***.”
In an even more comical turn of events, turns out the little boy had no choice but to use the garden as “his brother was on the toilet and he couldn’t hold on”.
Unsurprisingly, Elise’s relatable parenting clip went down well with followers who insist it “made their day”.
One fan replied: “This is the best, your kids are too funny.”
Another added: “I didn’t notice until I read your message… cracks me up.”
Meanwhile, a third joked: “Funniest ‘s***’ ever!!”
In more parenting news, this couple have been branded “morons” for the “crazy” name they gave their baby daughter.
And Mothercare has been praised for their adverts showing post-birth mums with pillowy bellies, stretch marks and swollen boobs.
Plus this mum was left devastated after her four-year-old daughter returned from a sleepover at her grandma’s with a MULLET.
