The whole ordeal takes more than two minutes because one cub decides it’s the perfect time to climb a pole, while its siblings keep running back into the road to play.

“Bear Mama, I know your struggle. You have the one you have to drag, the one that willingly follows, and the happy-go-lucky one about to get run over,” wrote person commented on Twitter.

"I have three kids 5 and under and I have been this bear before in a Chick Fil A parking lot,” wrote another person.

Added another, “I can feel her embearassment: ‘I’m so sorry, we’re holding up — it’ll just be a minute. I just got to — omg — PEACHES GET OFF THE TREE.”

TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie, who is mom of Vale, 6, and Charley, 4, also got a kick out of the clip that has racked up more than eight million views on Twitter.

As Savannah declared on Monday's show,“There is not a parent that cannot relate to that whole scene."
