Anita Renfroe- Dadsense (Because Momsense made some Dads jealous)

You should know by now that I am on a great crusade to get Anita Renfroe to become my BFF. We are well on our way. I have worked with her to make sure that the video posting was okay and that I had the correct lyrics for Momsense.

Well, apparently with the popularity of the Momsense video made a few Dads jealous. (You can see the Momsense video here on Mommy Needs Coffee as well as the lyrics to Momsense here.) So being the amazing woman that Anita is (I can so call her that seeing as my application for BFF is being processed), she did another song in response. This one is for the Dads.

If you really need the lyrics, I can post them. Just let me know.

Go show Anita Renfroe some love. She has most definitely shown it to me by sending people (aka the New York Times and other publications) my way for lyrics etc. And tell her her BFF in waiting sent you. (Yeah, you may have to give a full name, url and application number but really…she’ll totally know me when you mention the whole meeting for coffee date we have planned.)

Note to Anita: I am still waiting for the Kidsense version. I will so promote that one every week!

NOTE: I do realize that there are a ginormous amount of hands on Dads. We love you. We cherish you. We need you. Surely, you know this is meant to be funny, right? Truth be told, my husband rolled his eyes but still laughed. Please, take no offense. Anita Renfroe rocks and is never, ever one to offend. It is all comedy. I’m just sayin’.


  1. LOVE IT! She is a true genius with humor.

  2. My husband would not find this amusing but it was funny. He is a big time hands on dad with our five year old daughter but he admits to being a little less so when my step-daughters were that same age.

    Funny lady though.

  3. Because sexist stereotypes are funny.

    Remember this the next time you get a flat.

  4. Seriously, Will? Seriously?

    Because the millions of moms who were “stereotyped” in the Momsense video could actually see the humor in it.

    Interesting difference here. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Have a great day!

  5. Ha! That was hilarious. In all honestly I hadn’t see the momsense video (I know, where have I been living all this time, right?). I loved this one too! Thanks for sharing! πŸ™‚

  6. Excellent – and not too far from the truth.

  7. I will be more than happy to change any flat tires, my damn self.

  8. Ok. This is genius. Rock on Anita!

  9. I’ll listen when we return from our might city Chicago where we are visiting friends. I’m from Western New York and Chicago is our favorite city..

  10. That is so awesome. Love her. Funny as always.

  11. Hilarious! I have something for you that is just as funny but more inspiring. My book club (full of mom’s) just finished reading, “The Book of Mom” by Taylor Wilshire. It has the same sarcastic humor about a mom that feels overwhelmed and burned out and how she gets her passions to life back. I would love to hear what you have to think, have you read it?

  13. Okay, wait a minute is Anita actually considering DROPPING me as her BFF?!!! When did this happen? I mean, she didn’t even leave a post-it note or anything!!! *tear*

    She’s great! Kidsense would be awesome! Round it out! πŸ™‚

  14. I found the momsense lyrics. Are there any lyrics for dadsense written up yet? Is kidsense out yet?

  15. Abi? Here are the lyrics for you if you really need them.

    Hope that helps! πŸ˜‰
