Snagged this meme from Jean @ Working Momma 247. It’s one of those ipod shuffle memes where you shuffle for a song title to be the answer for each question. Except this one is all parenting related, which makes it cute, fun and different. And relevant. And nothing like a typical meme that I post all the time. Seriously. If you don’t believe me, try filling it out yourself! That’ll show you!
HOW DID YOU BECOME A MOM?
Come What May from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack, which is interesting because I had no idea this song had anything to do with me becoming a mom. But there you have it.
WHAT DID YOU THINK THE FIRST TIME YOU SAW YOUR BABY?
If Things Were Perfect by Moby – doesn’t everyone hear Techno music when they first see their baby?
WHAT DID YOU DO THE FIRST MORNING AFTER A SLEEPLESS NIGHT?

WHAT DO YOU SAY WHEN SOMEONE COLORS ON THE WALL?
Manhole by Ani Difranco (hey at least I said man… and not something else…)
HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH A TODDLER’S BODILY FLUID ISSUES?
When You’re Lonely by Jordan Knight – I don’t really see how that’s relevant, but Jordan Knight could probably help me deal with just about anything…
IF SOMEONE SAYS “Can I have a snack?” YOU SAY?
The Happiest Days Of Our Lives by Pink Floyd – I guess I really like snack time…
IF SOMEONE LEAVES THEIR STUFF ON THE FLOOR, YOU SAY?
Free Fallin’ by John Mayer – I have to admit, I prefer singing this song to dealing with just about anything…
IF SOMEONE ISN’T SICK TODAY, YOU SAY?
Glory by Sugar Ray – now that one seems appropriate!
HOW DO YOUR KIDS ENJOY YOUR COOKING?
It’s Coming Down by Cake – like maybe… down on the floor, where he throws much of his food? Also, cake.
HOW DID YOUR KIDS DO IN SCHOOL TODAY?
Gunning Down Romance by Savage Garden – okay totally irrelevant to the question, but then n/a would have been the real answer, so we’ll let this one slide…
HOMESCHOOLERS, WHAT IS THE FIRST SUBJECT TAUGHT OF THE DAY?
All I Have To Give by the Backstreet Boys – my children will be well versed in Boybandology and Doormatestry
WHAT DO YOUR KIDS WANT TO BE WHEN THEY GROW UP?
Track 7 of Devil Wears Prada audio book – this one maybe made me laugh the hardest – who doesn’t want to be Track 7?
WHAT WOULD BEST DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY AS A MOM?

WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU REGRET AS A MOM?

Comfortable by John Mayer – so far I think the only thing you’ve learned is that I have a LOT of John Mayer on my computer…
WHAT DO YOUR KIDS DO THAT MAKES YOU LAUGH?
Move by Moby – I guess that’s true
WHAT DO YOUR KIDS DO THAT MAKES YOU CRY?
Have Yourself a Merry Little XMas by Coldplay – now see that’s just not true
WHAT DO YOUR KIDS DO THAT SCARES YOU THE MOST?
Date Rape by Sublime – I’m dying right now – I could barely type that – no, he’s never done that. Don’t worry.
HOW DO YOUR KIDS DESCRIBE YOU AS THEIR MOM?
My Stupid Mouth by John Mayer – I need to have a word with him I think… that’s just not a very nice thing to say about your mother
IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME, WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE?
Same In The End by Sublime – I get this actually, I wouldn’t change a thing.
WHAT WILL YOUR MOM OF THE YEAR CERTIFICATE SAY?
Erie Canal by Veggie Tales – It’s a funny song, but it doesn’t seem terribly relevant… Oh well. This was still fun.
Let me know if you play, too!
