Possum Mom Watches Baby Try SO Hard To Get In Her Pouch

This brushtail possum mom knows exactly what being a parent is all about - a doting mom will be there for her child no matter what, because she loves him ... and kind of has no other choice.

Australia & Allsorts recently shared a video on Facebook depicting just how much of a struggle it was for this baby possum, named Plum, to fit himself inside his mother's pouch. And his mom had an equally hard time keeping her patience during the whole ordeal.

Spoiler alert: Plum still doesn't quite make it in all the way.

The video starts off with Plum's mother coaxing him as he tries to gracefully make his way inside her pouch.

No big deal right?

Wrong. Things start to derail pretty fast when Plum starts kicking and scratching in panic ...

. . . with no end to the struggle in sight.

Still, Plum's mom waits around patiently (because that's what moms do) ... though there are moments when she just looks so over it all.

You can almost see the desperation in her eyes.

It goes without saying that she deserves ALL the gifts on Mother's Day.
