I'm That Kind of Mum

Kids, I surrender. You win.

Ain't got no swanky office
Work's piled under marketing lists

Cos I'm a mum
A work-at-home mum

Baby's crying from a fall
At the start of a conference call

Cos I'm a mum
Professional mum

Gave up insensible shoes
To squat and kiss boo-boos
Cos I'm a mum
A practical mum 

My pay is kinda crappy
My mood, it's kinda snappy

Cos I'm a mum
An "I need to sleep" mum

Gave up a thousand or four
To do the things that matter more
Cos I'm a mum
A bye-bye-career mum

Economic contribution?
Let's talk after dinner preparation
I'm a mum

No-domestic-help mum

My body's oh so weary
Why do kids get up so early
I'm a mum
An I-want-to-sleep-in mum

Got no time to match clothes to shoes
Just grab whatever's clean and loose
Cos I'm a mum
An I-miss-looking-good mum

Sure I'd love to dress up
But my kids lost all my make up
Cos I'm a mum
No-more-cosmetics mum 

May have no real boss at my back
But the kids cut me no slack
Cos I'm a mum
Frequently bullied mum

No time to brush my hair
The school bus is already there
Cos I'm a mum
Perpetually late mum

When the kids are off at school
I ain't lounging by no pool

Cos I'm a mum
A "no time for me" mum

Phonics, craft, science and numbers
But really, I'm no teacher
Just a mum
Home learning mum

Fell asleep accidentally
At 8pm with the baby
Cos I'm a mum
A tired mum

Co-sleeping indefinitely
Nursing on demand, that's me
Cos I'm a mum
A milk-buffet mum

Picking toys at late o'clock
Feet finding pegs and Lego blocks
Cos I'm a mum
A try-to-be-neat mum

Bring the kids to the PD
Oh shucks, I've forgotten money
Cos I'm a mum
Absent-minded mum

Every day is filled with laundry
And "Mama just one more story"
Cos I'm a mum
A do-it-all mum

Late to meet our friends for dinner
The baby's still just in her diaper
Cos I'm a mum
A frazzled mum

Spare the rod and spoil the child?
I only hope they don't grow wild
Cos I'm a mum
Non-violent mum

Don't need no thermometer
To know they've got a fever
Cos I'm a mum
Experienced mum

People laugh at me when I say
It's tough to entertain kids all day
But I'm a mum
A hands-on mum

Excuse me if I'm not jolly
Just kicked over a full potty
Yes I'm a mum
A "sh*t happens" mum

Head's hot and nose is runny
Sick leave? Oh you're so funny!
I'm a mum
24/7 mum

No I don't think I'm wasting my time
I'll care for my kids, they're mine
I'm a mum
My kids' mum

  1. I absolutely love this, Adora! Do u already have a tune to this or is it gonna just be a rap? Haha! I'm gonna sing it to my own tune!

    1. Haha it goes to the tune of "I was climbing up the mountain when it came out like a fountain, diahorrea, diahorrea"

      Unfortunately I learnt such a song in my youth, yes

  2. Yes can so foresee it turning into a song or rap like the Fiat's motherhood rap. Hey and you forgot, you're a pretty cool mom too :)

  8. U definitely have a talent in rap/songwriting, another alternative project that u can do working at home? Love the apt!

    1. I should change my wardrobe and buy caps so I can wear then sideways, and lots of dollar sign bling? Gangsta mum!

  9. ohhh... so you are *THAT* kind of mum.....
    The best kind! :)

    An "it's-your-turn" dad
