Because I'm the Mom; Or, Overture in K(ids) Flat!

Comedian Anita Renfroe condenses everything We Moms might say to our kiddos in a 24-hour period, and sings it to the urgent strains of "The William Tell Overture." This video has been hanging around Mommy Blogs on the Internet for at least a year, but we thought we'd give you a mid-summer's laugh, anyway! We're pretty sure The Lone Ranger and composer Gioachino Rossini might even get a chuckle out of this--The Pop'r Family sure did! BTW, The Pink Potpourri is offering a fanTAbulous giveaway this weekend! Check out the rules for winning homemade stationery. It's really quite lovely!

This is so funny and true!! I heard it years ago and laughed my b--- off.
The flower is an Azalea from my garden. It is beautiful isn't it. My mother gave me a start of her plant years ago. This is only the second year it has bloomed.

This is a keeper! Do you think it's possible for a "regular mom" like me to commit it to memory?

I got to hear Anita sing this at a women's conference last year. It was so wonderful! I have one of her books, too. She's a good writer and keeps you interested. Thanks for the reminder. Blessings, marlene
