Make Her Laugh!

If you thought you had it all together before motherhood, the first time you leave the house without the diaper bag or the baby spits up all over you that myth is busted. Even though it can be the most rewarding job I've ever had, being a mom is also the toughest. Maybe that is why my friends and I love to tell stories of our wildest mom moments and disasters. Below are some of our favorite songs, including a couple I've written myself.

Supermom

(sung to Supercalifrajalisticexpialadocious)

by VirginiaLynne

I’ve cleaned the floor,
And made the beds,
G
I’ve done the dishes too.
A dinner’s in the crockpot,
C
Cause tonight we’re having stew.
My teeth are brushed,
My hair is combed,
F
My makeup is in place.
My shoes and purse co-ordinate
G
I’m ready for the race.

Chorus:
C G
Oh, Supermom's a goal of mine all through it is precocious,
C
And I know the sound of it is something quite ferocious,
F
If you say it loud enough it always can engross us,
G C
Supermom's a goal of mine although it is atrocious!

bridge: Oh, I've-got-ta-be-one, I've-got-ta-be-one, I've-got-ta-be-one, I've-got-ta-be-one

Verse 2

My bathroom is immaculate,
The floors and counters shine.
Look into my cupboards,
You’ll see nothing out of line.
My furniture is dusted,
My windows are all clean.
They're coming to take pictures
For Magnolia Magazine.

(chorus and bridge)

Verse 3

My children all get A’s in school,
They are the teacher’s pets.
At home, they are so quiet,
I’ve not raised my voice yet,
I’m all the moms you’ve never known,
But always have admired.
You’ve watched me from a distance now,
And hope to get inspired!

(chorus and bridge)

Verse 4

I’m supermom, I’m supermom,
Don’t you wish you were too?
My kids don’t argue, don’t get sick,
No throw-up, blood, or goo.
Thank goodness they are plastic,
Or I don’t know what I’d do.
Just call this toll-free number,
And you can have some too!
(Chorus)

Some moments make it all worth it!
Some moments make it all worth it! | Source

For Mothers Day, do you give a card that is:

Updated Motherhood Song

I love the way Anita Renfro incorporates all of the things we were told motherhood would be like in her parody rap, adding in all of the T.V. images of moms we knew growing up.

Bohemian Rhapsody Parody

I found this wonderful parody of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. The lyrics are posted on the YouTube website. Great video production too!

Go Fish Guys

I've seen the Go Fish Guys in concert four times and love the fact that they appreciate mothers and write kids songs that I actually enjoy listening to in my car. However, I can't play this song too often because the lyrics go through my head all day. The one that revolves around the most, "the boss, the driver, the ultimate survivor!" and "if you work all day yet never get paid... you're a mom!"

A Mother's Invisible Work

I call what mom's do "invisible work" because if you do it, people don't see it. The dishes are put away, the laundry isn't in the basket, there isn't dirt on the floor, the kids are quietly playing. However, if you don't do the work, that's when people notice!

My Retreat

This song idea came to me one day after hearing my kids yelling for me while I was secluded in that very private place, the bathroom. I have to admit that sometimes I DO hide in there. When the Charmin toilet paper company had a contest, I considered altering the lyrics to include Charmin and submitting it as a video, but I wasn't sure it suited my dignity as a professor of English.

I Am the Mother of 5 Children

(the tune of this one is sort of like that old song "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah, here I am at Camp Granada)

Chorus

G
I am the mother,
D
Of five children.
Where they are now,
G
I am not certain.

Am
I am hiding,
D
In the bathroom.
Am
And I don’t think I am coming out
D7
Too very soon.

Verse 1

I have snacks here,
M & Ms and Cheetos.
And I grabbed the very last bag
Of Doritos.

I have sodas,
A coffee maker,
a microwave,

and refrigerator.

(chorus)

Verse 2

I have my laptop
Makeup and comb.
Bible, Scrapbook tote,
And my iPhone.

I am relaxing,
It’s very quiet.
I may just take a nap
You ought to try it.

(chorus)

Verse 3

I think I hear them.
Calling to me
Calling “Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom?
repeatedly.

But I have earplugs,
I think I’ll use them,
And so I will avoid their
echo-location.

Ending Chorus
I am the mother,
Of five children.
Where they are now,
I am quite certain.

So I am hiding,
In the bathroom,
And I don’t think I am coming out
Too very soon.

Take a picture, quick!

The Challenge of a Lifetime

Really, in spite of my tendency to hide in the bathroom sometimes (where the kids really do try to find me by "echo-locution" as my husband says--yelling, "mom....Mom....MOM....MOMOMOM"). I love this job and I'm very proud of all five of my kids. In fact, nothing in any career is more interesting or frightening than being a mother. Although in my professional life I've been a teacher, written grants, given speeches and published papers, nothing compares to the challenge of motherhood.

In what other job can you be answering, "Why does that person have purple hair?" to one person, while discussing "Does God let animals into heaven?" with another, and then stop everything (including the dinner you were cooking while you were talking) to run into the living room to clean up the various bodily fluids that did not end up where there were supposed to go. Crazy, fabulous, difficult and all-consuming. That's motherhood.

      I love this hub. Your kids are all adorable and I quite believe you when you said your kids are absolutely perfect--I know, I know, they're in pictures and all. Hiding in the bathroom, now, that I can relate. I know of one mother who hides in the closet. As for me, i used to want to run away. You're an excellent mom and kudos on adopting kids.

      Carter--you are so sweet! You may not say that if you actually heard my voice! But I figure that it is parody, right? Doesn't have to be beautiful!

      urmilashukla--great name! I'm wondering how you got it? Thanks so much for reading my songs. I was very nervous about sharing them, so I sung them to myself right beforehand and just said, "What the heck, I think they are funny and maybe someone else will too." I have another one about breastfeeding that I'm going to have to post, but I'm wondering what my husband will say about that one! He has a whole sound studeio set up here at the house and I'm hoping he'll help me record these songs. I don't have a great voice, but that isn't as important in satire!

      Peachpurple--I love that name! Yes, two of my kids are Chinese and they are adopted. We adopted them in 2002 and 2004 when adoptions were pretty easy to do. I've written a lot about our adoptions and actually spent the rest of the day I made this hub working on getting my adoption journal ready for Hubpages. If I remember, you are from Malaysia. I have never had a chance to go there, but have had friends from there. I like your hubs and all the activities you do with your children, by the way!
