Anyway, the hours b/w 4-6pm are always rough. The girls are getting extra cranky, I'm at the end of my rope, and I am trying to make dinner while the girls fight over the stool so they can watch me closely or help with dinner. Typically, it is really cute when they want to help. But not b/w 4-6pm. I like to call those "The Dark Hours" of the day where every one of us is cranky and have had it with each other and we're all just waiting for Nate to get home because everyone's mood miraculously changes into a good one. I hope I'm not the only mom who feels this way. :-/
So, to get through "The Dark Hours", I will typically blast some music to tune out the crying and fighting over who knows what. Laurie Berkner (my kids favorite) is really great but I can only handle so much of her music to keep my sanity. So, every once in a while when I am feeling a little too "Mom-ish", I will put on some music that make me feel a little more adult. For example, when I am feeling like busting out singing and getting emotional, I will put on Les Miserables. Wicked is good for the busting out part, too. And then I put on some more cool and hip songs to make myself feel a little more... cool. Is "cool" even a cool word anymore? Don't answer that.
Anyway, there is one song in particular that makes me feel like a total Bad A and I love it. Whenever it starts, I suddenly turn into a little white gangster and I dance and sing to this song with so much attitude and just like my life depended on it. I even get in the girls or Nate's face while I pretend like I am the real singer of this amazing song. And I know I probably look like a total idiot when I bust out to this song, but I FEEL so cool and untouchable that I don't even care what I truly must look like.
Anyway, here is the song, and I hope it makes you mom's feel a little more sassy and a little more cool. :)
What song helps you feel a little more like yourself when you're feeling a little too Mom-ish?
