This Mom's Cover of "Bohemian Rhapsody" Will Make Your Day
Spring fever is in full swing in my house, and it ain't pretty. It's like the long-overdue sight of green grass and flowers has turned my sweet, mellow boy into a raging lunatic who has way too much energy come bedtime. Keeping up with him—and keeping him out of harm's way —has left me cranky, exhausted, and silently hatching my escape plan.
I'm pretty sure Deva Dalporto feels my pain. The brain behind "What Does the Kid Say?" and "Let It Go, Mom," she regularly pokes fun at the pains of parenting. This time around, with her awesome parody of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," (she calls hers "Bohemian Momsody")she totally nailed mine—with lots of head banging, kids in sunglasses and moms in white jumpsuits, no less.
In her cover, the My Life Suckers blogger covered many of the biggies we parents face on a daily: crying jags, repeated requests for juice, the inability to walk two feet without your toddler following you ("Anywhere that I go, they just want to follow me, follow me."). Oh, and Dalporto also delivered a minute-long plea to her family to please just let her pee in peace.
Yup, it's pretty perfect. But don't take my word for it—check out the full video below and tell us in the comments if any of this rings true for you, too:
