Little Ray of Sunshine

I know that I have already sent this to some of you. It still makes me laugh every time I listen to it. This lady is soooo funny! Her name is Anita Renfroe and this clip is from Total Momsense. It fits in well with my post about momisms (two posts down from this one). I stuck the lyrics underneath so you can read along if you want! Enjoy this little ray of sunshine in your totally chaotic day and try not to pee your pants!

Get up now. Get up now. Get up out of bed.
Wash your face. Brush your teeth. Comb your sleepy head.
Here's your clothes and your shoes. Hear the words I said?
Get up now. Get up and make your bed.
Are you hot? Are you cold? Are you wearing that?
Where's your books and your lunch and your homework at?
Grab your coat and your gloves and your scarf and hat.
Don't forget you got to feed the cat.
Eat your breakfast.
The experts tell us it's the most important meal of all.
Take your vitamins so you will grow up one day to be big and tall.
Please remember the orthodontist will be seeing you at three today.
Don't forget your piano lesson is this afternoon so you must play.
Don't shovel. Chew slowly. But hurry the bus is here.
Be careful. Come back here. Did you wash behind your ears?
Play outside. Don't play rough. Would you just play fair?
Be polite. Make a friend. Don't forget to share
Work it out. Wait your turn. Never take a dare.
Get along. Don't make me come down there.
Clean your room. Fold your clothes. Put your stuff away.
Make your bed. Do it now. Do we have all day?
Were you born in a barn? Would you like some hay?
Can you even hear a word I say?
Answer the phone. Get Off the phone. Don't sit so close.
Turn it down. No texting at the table.
No more computer time tonight.
Your iPod's my iPod if you don't listen up.
Where you going and with whom and what time do you think you're coming home?
Saying thank you, please, excuse me makes you welcome everywhere you roam.
You'll appreciate my wisdom someday when you're older and you're grown.
Can't wait 'til you have a couple little children of your own.
You'll thank me for the counsel I gave you so willingly.
But right now I thank you NOT to roll your eyes at me.
Close your mouth when you chew. Would appreciate
Take a bite maybe two of the stuff you hate
Use your fork. Do not you burp or I'll set you straight.
Eat the food I put upon your plate.
Get an A. Get the door. Don't get smart with me.
Get a Grip. Get in here I'll count to 3.
Get a job. Get a life. Get a PhD
Get a dose of..........
I don't care who started it you're grounded until your 36.
Get your story straight and tell the truth for once for heaven's sake.
And if all your friends jumped off a cliff would you jump too?
If I've said it once, I've said at least a thousand times before that
You're too old to act this way. It must be your father's DNA.
Look at me when I am talking. Stand up straighter when you walk.
A place for everything and everything must be in place.
Stop crying or I'll give you something real to cry about!
Brush your teeth, Wash your face, Get your PJs on.
Get in bed. Get a hug. Say a prayer with Mom.
Don't forget I love you!
And tomorrow we will do this all again because a mom's work never ends.
You don't need the reason why!
I said so.
I said so.
I said so.
I said so.
I'm the Mom!
The mom
The mom
The mom
TA DA!!!!!!

This is way too cute! It rings so true. I have two children, but my son especially tests me on every turn!

I love that one!! It makes me smile no matter how many times I hear it. I wish I could make it my ringtone for my phone. Thanks for the laugh this morning.

I've had that in my head for DAYS AND DAYS AND DAYS, but only in bits and pieces because my mind just doesn't work fast enough to memorize all the words, but there you have them all typed out for me and easy to sing along with, so YAY, you're my new hero. THANKS! LOL
