I’m Dorky And I Know It

As you may have gathered from the title of this blog, the dork runs strong in me, and the rest of my family is no exception. My son once asked when he was going to get his nerd card, and my daughter came out of the womb with a Batman obsession. Dorky, among other things, is what we are, and we embrace it. 

Sometimes we embrace our inner dorks by changing the lyrics the popular songs. “Let It Go” becomes “Let Her Fart” (thanks, Little Man), “Summer Nights” became a song about Baby Girl’s bowel movements, and “Can’t Stop The Feeling” also became a song about flatulence. “My Heart Will Go On”…well, I probably don’t need to explain. (And apparently we all have the sense of humor of eleven year olds.)

Last week Little Man and I were making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. We were having a lazy dinner night, and the kids wanted PB&Js, which is perfect for lazy dinners, lunches, and pretty much everything. While making the sandwiches, I commented to Little Man that he and Baby Girl were certainly “all about that peanut butter.” And they are. Outside of pizza day at school, I can count the number of times LM has requested something other than PB&J for lunch on one hand, and BG loves peanut butter so much that she’ll eat at it straight from the jar.

“Yeah, we sure are,” he responded.

And then this was born:

Little Man suggested recording a video to put on YouTube, but I opted out. My singing abilities probably shouldn’t be showcased anywhere other than in doodled format. 

What songs do you like to change up for fun?

I got some cool news this morning — my Five Stages Of Dealing With Your Kids’ Carseats doodle will appear on Scary Mommy next Monday (if nothing changes scheduling wise). I’m excited about that. The text part of the post will be a bit more fleshed out, so I’ll post a link when it’s up next week.

I’m a SAHM to two kids. When I’m not doing all the typical mom things (diapers, soccer, etc.), I like writing, reading, and playing games. Clearly I live the life of a rock star.

  1. First off, congratulations!!!!!!!!! That is awesome news!! I will 100% put that post on FB; maybe it’ll go viral. πŸ™‚ I don’t read scary mommy unless someone posts on FB, so I hope you put a link to it on your website…

    Second, I love the dorkiness, fart jokes/songs, and singing! My 3.5yo likes toot jokes … and just tooting in general. What kid doesn’t, I guess?! Btw dorky songs are the best!! Let’s just all embrace it, lol. But yeah… probably not youtube-worthy…!

    1. Thanks a bunch! Little Man keeps pushing me to do more of the doodles, so I think he was more excited than I was even when I told him about this. So sweet ❀

      Hehe, my toddler is all about pooting now (autocorrect changed that to "looting," which would have been much funnier) and will loudly announce that she did it and excuse herself. Kids!


    1. It’s funny you say that since I had to save this post and come back later because I couldn’t think of any examples of songs we changed at first. Mommy brain FTW.


Write some words, yo.
