Parenting is not for the faint-hearted. It involves a lot of patience and persistence. One such Instagram post was made by Darryl Prendergast, a mom settled in South Carolina. Prendergast discussed the challenges of school before the winter break. In a video she said, "I don't know who needs to hear this, but your kid has some kind of pajama-wearing, winter fest, book swap, Secret Santa, cookie-sharing, Twelve Days of Christmas, Spirit Week-something happening at school tomorrow that you need to get ready for." The caption of this video read, "there's a sign-up genius somewhere out there with your name on it. Go get your item." This was an honest and humorous video and therefore, it received both love and laughter in the comments section.

Prendergast received supportive and humorous comments on her video, one follower wrote "I feel seen", while another wrote, "you’re probably right and I don’t know anything about it!". Her video was received well because many parents face the same challenges around this time. In an interview with TODAY, Prendergast said "I had just gotten an email from my child’s middle school about a Holiday Spirit Week that entailed various outfit changes", she added "there is an ice cream truck one day — don’t forget to send money — Wednesday is 'Red and White' Day, Thursday is 'White Out Day' and Friday is 'Pajama Day.' Oh, and there's a teacher's luncheon." It is for this reason, she shared a video on her situation before it could overwhelm her.
