This mom's post about her rough morning is both hilarious and relatable

"Why the hell is your stank ass sock on the light fixture?"

We all have those crazy pre school mornings where we feel like we are about to burst into flames running and chasing our children around the house.

But sometimes, it's nice to read other mother's stories to make us realise that we are all only human and those mornings can sometimes get the better of all of us.

One of these mom's who decided to share her hectic morning which all occurred before 7am, is writer Tara Wood.

We could not help but laugh and nod as she recalled her morning through a Facebook post.

She started it by saying: "My apologies for not being around much this week."

And little did we know how it was going to unfold...

A dog needing full time care, a sock that almost burnt down the house and a dead squirrel were all part and parcel of her typical morning.

Describing her son's sock that got caught on a light fixture and almost set the house on fire, Tara effortlessly makes us laugh. She describes the event by saying:

"I started getting panicky so I shook Garrett awake while low key screaming 'WAKE UP SOMETHING IS ON FIRE BUT I CANT FIND WHAT IT IS AND WE'RE ALL ABOUT TO DIE I THINK!'

He was all 'What now?'

And I was 'B**CH SOMETHING IS BURNING IN THIS HOUSE AND THERE ARE SIX KIDS AND A HOBBLED DOG AND WE ALL NEED TO ESCAPE RIGHT NOW PUT ON YOUR PANTS AND HELP ME NOT DIE WOULD YOU?'

So he was moving at a glacier's pace although he could smell the burning whatever as well."

Thankfully however, the house did not burn down and the mom-of-six explains how she saved the day. She said:

"And while I'm standing in a chair and using one of Marigold's dolls- which now has a disfigured, melty head because it's what I used to push the flaming gym sock off of the bulb and onto the floor, Leo just sheepishly shrugged his shoulders and said 'Sock Fire' would be a cool band name.'"
