“the mom, the mom, the mom”

youtube-ing the whole afternoon yesterday, may nakita akong interesanteng mga vid clip. and this one, i would like to particularly dedicate to miss toni and iska — mom-bloggers that i know of who have, in one way or another, influenced my POVs and online lifestyle. i always thought before na blogging was just something para ilabas ang angst mo sa buhay. it’s for people who want attention by “sharing” their being, their minds, their emotions. and then pag may nagbasa eh napakalaking “massage” sa ego yun.

but i was wrong. for some, ganun siguro. i still encounter a$$hole$ who don’t care much except ruin other people’s lives and spam on blogs pero sa mga nakikilala ko na, it’s a tool for genuinely sharing your knowledge. it’s giving yourself and opening yourself to the world for everyone to see… parang dasal ‘to eh. pag may nagbasa at naka-appreciate, magpasalamat. pag wala, edi wala. dasal tayo ulit. parang tansan na lang na “better luck next time” ang naka-tatak sa ilalim.

hmmm… mukhang nalayo na ako sa “dikdik-keysyun” kong post. anyway, as i was saying, this goes to the two mom-bloggers i know and i hope na-appreciate nila. 🙂

“Get up now, Get up now, Get up out of bed
Wash your face, Brush your teeth, Comb your sleepy head
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 your 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 three 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 ear?
Play outside, don’t be rough, will you just be 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 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 until 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 a 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 or I’ll count to 3
Get a job, get a life, get a PhD, get a …..Ohhh!
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, get 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, TahDah!”

  1. Hi Bursky! This was a really funny clip. I remember my Mom in her. Haha! Thanks for the sweet words too. It really brightened up my morning. I’m not a Mom though, but perhaps that maternal instinct emanates in my blog for you to think I’m one. I don’t mind at all.

    Thanks for the dedication, the video and brightening up my morning! Hope you have a great Friday.

  2. Hello Bursky! Toni is right, you’re so sweet. I mean, how many times can a blog post be dedicated to you? This is my first time 🙂

    Thanks! And a very heartwarming video! Hindi ko alam kung naalala ko mom ko o nakaka-relate na ko ng husto hehehehe
