    In anticipation of this Sunday, I thought I'd share this.

    I bet most of you have heard a lot of these words (the lyrics are below).

    For those who are lucky enough to be one,
    and those lucky enough to have one...
    The Mom Song

    "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
    Brush your teeth, wash your face, put your PJs on
    Get in bed, get up here, 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!!!
