Total Eclipse of the Heart: Motherhood Edition

I sometimes get 80s classics stuck in my head…and then make up my own lyrics. Don’t judge me.

Then I had to search for the video on Youtube and I’m now in that weirded out zone. Twerking is weird enough, but whew boy.

Without further ado, Motherhood A La Bonnie Tyler:

 

Every now and then I get a little bit lonely when the Army sends you round
Every now and then I get a little bit tired of wiping all the tears and the rears

Every now and then I get a little bit nervous that my wrinkle-free days have gone by
I get a little bit terrified- what on earth is that in your eye?

Every now and then I fall apart…Every now and then I fall apart

sleeping

Every now and then I get a little bit restless when the house has gone wild

Every now and then I get a little bit helpless when there’s always a child in my arms

Every now and then I get a little bit angry and I know I’ve got to get out and cry
Every now and then I get a little bit terrified; I have 8 different stains on my thighs
Every now and then I fall apart…Every now and then I fall apart!

And I need you now tonight

And I need you more than ever

And I know it will be alright
I’ve been holding it forever…

And we’ll try to parent right even when days get long
Together we can make it to the end of the line

There are victories to celebrate all of the time

I’m always wiping poop and fear Legos in the dark
Our house is like a powder keg giving off sparks

I really need you tonight
Did I eat dinner tonight?

Can’t wait to get a shower tonight!
Every day I fall a little deeper in love although I’m mostly falling apart
Please tell me that was only a fart…

Once upon a time there were no boys my life.
Now I get up while it’s still dark.

Yes, my hands are full but not nearly  as full as my heart
