How is everyone surviving the holiday season? I’ll be honest—I’m having a hard time keeping up and getting everything done. The holiday events, the Christmas card and letter (yes, we are one of the approximately 8 people in the world who still type a holiday letter.), not to mention working and blogging. If they made a reality show about my life, it would be called “Woman Wearing Too Many Hats Drops All the Balls” (um…). I’ve especially been slacking on my song parody series, ParentZ Bop, these past few months. And then I realized, with all the holiday music infiltrating our lives in December, there was so much untapped potential for parenting song parodies. I decided I had better record a holiday parody ASAP, and a memorable one at that.
And then I got a brilliant lyric submission from my favorite haiku artist and former ParentZ Bop lyricist, Peyton Price of Suburban Haiku. Her lyrics to “Do You Hear What I Hear?” will resonate with every parent who has ever planted their butt on the couch with the intention of relaxing for a few hours, only to be interrupted yet again by a child who had emerged from his or her bedroom in need of a glass of water/hug/new blanket/leg massage/lovey to be deposited in the freezer for the 14th time.
Listen to Peyton’s version of “Do You Hear What I Hear?” and then stick around, because I have a proposition for you!
I have an epic holiday parody idea, and I need your help! I’m going to be rewriting “All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth” with a list of things that parents want this holiday season. Not a new bathrobe or a new pair of boots, I mean things like:
- 12 hours of uninterrupted sleep
- a remote control to turn your kids’ whining off
- for your kids to eat their dinner
- a babysitter to get your kids ready for school in the morning
You get the picture. So leave me a comment below or on my Facebook page with your contribution to the “All I Want for Christmas” lyrics! I can’t wait to put it all together!
