Desperate Mom Goes Viral Making Her Kids "Water Popsicles"

A desperate mom is going viral on TikTok after coming up with a hilarious way to keep her two young sons occupied: She's making ice in popsicle molds and telling them they're "water popsicles." "Introducing my kids favorite treat that they constantly beg for... WATER POPSICLES," 27-year-old Erin Bachman wrote alongside a clip that shows her filling up the molds at her kitchen sink. She also lip-syncs along to an infamous clip from "Cash Me Outside" girl Danielle Bregoli, which seems to hint at how she's duped her kids: "That's what I always do and they never catch me. Ain't nobody gonna catch me," she says. Bachman also tells BuzzFeed that her kids realize they're just made from water, but they don't care. "Both of my kids always say they’re yummy, but they also think that every flavor of real popsicles tastes the same, so I think it’s more that they’re excited about having something frozen on a popsicle stick than it is about the actual taste," she said. Even better, clear popsicles don't stain and leave sticky messes behind like the real ones!
