Momsense (to the William Tell Overture)

Momsense (to the William Tell Overture)

I had this sent to me by a friend of mine (who might not want to be named but she knows who she is) and thought it was awesome enough to share with you. I know for sure I have probably said most if not all of these things. I know for sure I heard these things! What about you? Sound familiar?


“Everything a mom says in 24 hours condensed to 2 minutes and 55 seconds and sung to the William Tell Overture. Every mom does this same “song – just probably not quite this fast.”

Edited to add for those of you who have asked: The singer is Anita Renfroe. Amazing woman. The lyrics to this are here.

I love this, but I’d love to see one compiling the crazy things we have to say to four kids under seven. ie. “no swinging bats in the house, stop swishing your hands in the toilet, use your words not your teeth…I feel like the mommy uniform should be that black and white referee suit.
