Her answer is no, and she's feeling unbudgeable.

You knew it was coming. And now it's here: a mom spoof of Meghan Trainor's "No," courtesy of Arizona vlogger Tara Brough.

"I kept hearing the song on the radio and it was so catchy it got stuck in my head. As I'm humming it I'm telling my 4 year old no about this or that," the mom-of-two told ABC News.

Yup, been there. Like Brough, "my answer is no!" all the time.


Here are some sample lyrics from the spoof: "Climbing up the walls, hitting me with balls... Then you want my phone. You won't leave me alone!"

Then Brough, whose kids (4-year-old Porter and 2-year-old Piper) are adorable in this video, sings: "All my mommies listen up. If that kid won't give it up. Purse your lips, hands on your hips, and all you gotta say is..." You know where this is going.


In the end, when it comes to her kids playing with her Snapchat, jumping on the bed, and pushing one another down the stairs in a laundry basket, she's feelin' "unbudgeable, unbudgeable..."

Kudos to Brough for getting her groove on in her hilarious spoof of one of my fav songs right now. But there's an important message behind the parody. She explains, "As a parent you have to say no to your kids so often because they're trying new things all the time. The video addresses it in a lighthearted way that moms can appreciate and laugh at." The mama adds, "It's a sad thing to say no all the time. It's not fun."

Totally agree. 90 percent of the time, it should be "no." But that other 10 percent can be "yes."
