As we plan for the beginning of school in our area, many mom’s are thinking these things already! Let’s revisit a fun post and laugh for our own sake!

Here are the lyrics to this fun song by comedian Anita Renfroe, as she sings in 2 minutes 55 seconds what a mom says…

“The Mom Song”

Get up now
Get up now
Get up out of bed
Wash your face
Brush your teeth
Comb your sleepyhead
Here’s your clothes and your shoes
Hear the words I said
Get up now! Get up and make your bed
Are you hot? Are you cold?
Are you wearing that?
Where’s your books and your lunch and your homework at?
Grab your coat and gloves and your scarf and hat
Don’t forget! You gotta feed the cat
Eat your breakfast, the experts tell us it’s the most important meal of all
Take your vitamins so you will grow up one day to be big and tall
Please remember the orthodontist will be seeing you at 3 today
Don’t forget your piano lesson is this afternoon so you must play
Don’t shovel
Chew slowly
But hurry
The bus is here
Be careful
Come back here
Did you wash behind your ears?
Play outside, don’t play rough, will you just play fair?
Be polite, make a friend, don’t forget to share
Work it out, wait your turn, never take a dare
Get along! Don’t make me come down there
Clean your room, fold your clothes, put your stuff away
Make your bed, do it now, do we have all day?
Were you born in a barn? Would you like some hay?
Can you even hear a word I say?
Answer the phone! Get off the phone!
Don’t sit so close, turn it down, no texting at the table
No more computer time tonight!
Your iPod’s my iPod if you don’t listen up
Where are you going and with whom and what time do you think you’re coming home?
Saying thank you, please, excuse me makes you welcome everywhere you roam
You’ll appreciate my wisdom someday when you’re older and you’re grown
Can’t wait till you have a couple little children of your own
You’ll thank me for the counsel I gave you so willingly
But right now I thank you not to roll your eyes at me
Close your mouth when you chew, would appreciate
Take a bite maybe two of the stuff you hate
Use your fork, do not burp or I’ll set you straight
Eat the food I put upon your plate
Get an A, get the door, don’t get smart with me
Get a grip, get in here, I’ll count to three
Get a job, get a life, get a PHD
Get a dose of,
“I don’t care who started it!
You’re grounded until you’re 36″
Get your story straight and tell the truth for once, for heaven’s sake
And if all your friends jumped off a cliff would you jump, too?
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said at least a thousand times before
That you’re too old to act this way
It must be your father’s DNA
Look at me when I am talking
Stand up straighter when you walk
A place for everything and everything must be in place
Stop crying or I’ll give you something real to cry about
Oh!
Brush your teeth, wash your face, put your PJs on
Get in bed, get a hug, say a prayer with mom
Don’t forget, I love you
And tomorrow we will do this all again because a mom’s work never ends
You don’t need the reason why
Because, because, because, because
I said so, I said so, I said so, I said so
I’m the mom, the mom, the mom, the mom, the mom!!
Ta da!!!

Thank you Jeanne Lippencott for having these lyrics on your blog!

Infant & Toddler QuickSource(R) is an excellent tool for Parents!

This teacher guide is also a wonderful tool for parents of homeschoolers and other parents in need of ideas or interested in trying out fun things at home that focus on the developmental ages and stages of your children.

Infant QuickSource®

Mom and Child

Observe and identify developmental stages for infants. Find experiences that help reinforce and support developmental milestones, aiming to build the foundation of learning. Infant caregivers must understand that all essential guidelines for infants revolve around the domains of language, cognitive, social/emotional and motor development. Exploration, perception, communication, mobility, self-competence, trust, relationships, independence, and impulse control (beginning around 18 months) are all developmental goals for infants. This invaluable, easy-to-use resource provides comprehensive support across eight domains of emergent learning for children from birth to 18 months.

Toddler QuickSource®

Mom and Daughter rocking

Children from birth to age three are in the most critical period for language development. Children in the toddler years are active explorers and need many small and gross motor activities as well as opportunities to problem-solve. Because this is a prime age for building connections within the brain, language, cognitive skills, social emotional development and physical development are the four areas of focus for the toddler group. The developmental guidelines in this QuickSource are categorized into eight learning domains. At all times, however, the guidelines provide an emphasis on the four areas above.
