This Video Nails Why We Can't Finish Our Convos When Kids Are Around

Do you struggle to get to the end of an adult conversation because of interrupting kids? Then watch this and commiserate.

It's almost impossible to have a discussion with your spouse when you've got young kids in the house. Turn your attention away from them for one split second in order to try and whip up an adult convo, and the little monsters will immediately start crying, screaming for help, breaking things, or throwing crap at your face until you agree to help them hunt for baby dragons.

And sometimes, they just want to interrupt so they can show you their butt.

Just ask Matthew Clarke and wife Leila Harrison. As parents to two kids under five, Clarke (creator of the popular web series "Convos With My 2 Year Old") and Harrison know only too well that #TheStruggleIsReal when it comes to ever getting to the end of an adult conversation. So the couple decided to hilariously tackle the issue in a new video called Almost Convos With My Wife.

In it, real adult men take on the kid roles, effectively cockblocking (and actually junk-punching) Clarke and Harrison as they attempt to discuss everything from a strange dream and parent-teacher conferences to the family budget and a weird new rash.

Their "kids" disruption skills are on totally point, however, so none of the discussions ever really get off the ground. And in the end, all of us viewers are left with a bunch of crazy parental cliffhangers. Will we ever find out what the bank was calling for? What did Coco's teacher have to say? What are Shaun's new allergies?!

Stay tuned, guys. If you can hang in there for about 15 more years, both kids will be in college.
