There are funny videos and then there are funny videos. This one popped into my inbox yesterday, but I’ve only just had time to watch it today (because, when you watch the video, you’ll see that I’m a busy woman…!)
I’ve heard a mummy rap before, but this one seemed to strike a few chords with me! ‘The Motherhood’ has got it nailed! From the first few lines I was already laughing out loud, yes, my life & body have changed, I do now know the difference between a tractor and a digger, and that sexy handbag that belonged to just me? Gone! And now being shared with two other people who seem to need more stuff than when they were babies! As for work vs home, well we know who wins that one 90% of the time!

It’s not one of those videos that try and make out that mums either take on the world single handed (and win because we’re superhuman queens of nature – we’re not!) or that we’re failing miserably at everything we touch, you know, because we can’t quite get a balance between anything, nothing like going from one extreme to another, it’s more real than that, and there will be a few, if not a lot of things all mums can relate to! And a couple that you’ll probably do a silent laugh at!

The blurb behind it was that:

The objective of this video was to create an engaging film that surprises and delights viewers with sharp humour that all young mothers can relate to. The heroine is depicted as a normal down to earth mum dealing with and rapping about the trials and tribulations of being a mother. The video was intended as a fun, cheeky and well observed focus on the trials of motherhood, discussed with a surprising frankness to make the target audience feel understood. The idea of the ’Motherhood’ repeated throughout the video was utilised to help create a sense of unity for all young mothers who can relate to the video.

You have to watch it to see what I mean, turn the volume up, make it full screen and sit back and giggle.

    Well written, well performed some true, some a bit Ott, but very entertaining, I expect a lot of todays’ mothers identified with it.
