Motherhood is one of the hardest and most thankless jobs out there. It's nice to be recognized once in a while for those selfless things you do for your family. But it's also important to laugh it off when you're not.
The Laughing Moms, Eden Morris and Alisha Merrick, a comedy duo known for their popular YouTube music video parodies, are making it their mission to both help you get the recognition you deserve and make you laugh this Mother's Day through a Mom of the Year contest. To launch the contest, The Laughing Moms rereleased their music video for 'Mom of the Year,' set to the tune of Billionaire by Travie McCoy.
"I wanna be mom of the year so stinkin' bad," the song opens. "I deserve an award for all the kids I've had." Catch a pseudo shout out to Parents magazine in the next line and references to screaming babies, stretch marks, and poo-covered clothes throughout the song. Relate to the lyrics? Well, this year you can be mom of the year!
The Laughing Moms are accepting nominations through their website until May 7. Share a story of why you or a friend should be mom of the year and Laughing Moms will publish some of their favorite stories prior to Mother's Day. The winner will be announced on May 10.
