This song goes out to all the moms with spit-up on their blouse…

Happy Mother's Day!

Katie Goodman singing "Mama Mama."

This song is about parenting, and just a disclaimer. My son is a teenager and now watches our videos so I just want to say this song is not about him. 

He’s perfect. 

And our relationship is perfect. 

[Song Excerpt]:

“You fix their hair

You froze on the sled

You got them a kazoo

Now you wish you were dead

Bought the easy-to-build toys

Yeah, you were misled

You paid for braces

So they don’t look inbred…”
