Let It Go – Mom Parody (Video)

Like everyone else on the planet, I love “Let It Go.” And Idina Menzel. So I had to do my own mom-ified version.

The Let It Go chorus spoke to me on a whole different level. Once upon a time, I tried to be the perfect mom, with the perfect house and the perfect career and ended up being an exhausted, cranky, crazy woman. Now I think the only way to do this parenting thing, and do it right, is to Let It Go and do the best you can. Rock your muffin top in your messy house and laugh at the insanity of it all!

So TADA! Here it is! I hope you’ll laugh and enjoy as I screech my way through the song in my yoga pants.

Here are the lyrics if you’d like to sing along!

And PS- Of course I had to do “go there” again and sit on the potty. Wait for it …
And PPS- If you like this, pretty please with a cherry on top SHARE IT and like it on YouTube!
And PPPS- Like my Facebook page! We have a ton of fun laughing at the insanity of parenting!
And PPPPS- Thank you!!!

    OMG that was soo great! I definetly make up my own songs all the time and sing them horribly at the top of my lungs all the time. My little boy finds it funny, but my oh so grown up ten yr old little girl says I’m so embarrassing!! Lmao
    Definetly shared this on my facebook! Wish I had the guts to share silly things like this, but I get camera shy.. Lol

    Love. We are a family of music lovers and my husband is a musician so we often make up songs also. But never as awesome as yours! And all mine somehow end up to the tune of the wheels on the bus. My nine year old just made a great one about flushing her sister down the toilet. (We’ve been watching the poop song a lot lately cause we’re potty training). Your blogs make my days!! :)

    That is just awesome and so spot on! Had to share that one on my facebook page! Thanks for putting to song what all the rest of us feel like!!!!

    Love it! I learned to let it go, and you know what? Life moves to fast to be worrying endlessly about having a perfectly clean living room! Kids are mostly grown, and I kinda have my house back so now I can “miss” some of the nuttiness of raising them.

    Keep it up, women need to learn to let it go!

    Made me laugh and cry at the same time. My kids are 10, 8, 5, and 2…and I feel like this has been my life for the past 10 years. Thanks you are a genius :)

      Oh my gosh, I don’t know! My husband bought the painting in Ecuador 15 years ago for nothing from a street artist. It must be a knock off. There’s no signature.

    I’m “Grandma” and that totally reflects my ‘once upon a time’ life as a young mum and my ‘now’ life as a helper-carer for my 3 year old Grand-daughter. There are still days when I walk past the pile of laundry, the dishes filling the sink, and the toys scattered across the sitting room. If it is warm and sunny then we can go out and ignore it from a distance!! (Mind you today is SUNNY but *C*O*L*D* (below -30 when you factor in the wind), so we’ll stay in and ignore it!

    This was great! Call me crazy, but this actually choked me up. My four babies are now all ten and over. Your video brought back a flood of memories. I can’t honestly say that I miss those days. But dang they went fast.

  9. Heather says

    You started my day out better than any day. Not only did you nail that, but it is my two year old boys favorite song and he sings it all the time. I will now always have a smile and chuckle when he does and think about how awesome life is. Thank you!

    This is the funniest thing I have seen in quite some time. OMG! Hilarious. Do you have the lyrics written out anywhere? I love this! Hilarious! Off to share. Everywhere.

  11. Hillary says

    BAHAHAAHAHAHAAA!! Thanks! It was definitely one of those days for me and I SOOOOOOOOOOOOO needed this! Brilliant! Considered this shared on FB!!

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

    I have been having a week of it al “Getting to me” and really needed a good laugh. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one.

    This brought me to tears. I can feel the love, the acceptance, and the magnificence of the ordinary! Thank you for being it and making it extraordinary! You are a game-changer for the world!!! Namaste-

    I cannot tell you how bad I needed to see that this morning. Its the smile I needed after dealing with a “spirited” 3 year old and teething 7 month old. YOU ROCK!!!!

  15. Amy Bueno says

    Wow! That was brilliant! Congratulations on all your mommy success! Hopefully we will see you at the Fun Faire in Oct!

  16. Stacey says

    Oh my word- this has to be the BEST mom song ever!!! I had to send it to all my mommy friends- we have certainly all been there. The bathroom scene- priceless. This was awesome! Definitely summed up a day in the life of a mom! Great Job!!!!

  17. Charity says

    I’ve been hearing about this for quite awhile and finally watched it. I’m glad I did. You are very talented and this was a great way to start my day!

      Hi Tonya- Just press play right above here! It is still on YouTube, it’s just Disney doesn’t want any of their parodies on mobile devices, were you on your phone by any chance? But it does work on my blog on mobile. It’s also on Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/87793645

      I hope you like it!

    My kids keep asking me to play the “funny version” of Let It Go while we’re in the car. We all love it. You don’t happen to have an audio version I can put on my iPod, do you? Thanks for adding some wonderful humor to our day!!!

  19. Lulu says

    The only thing I disagree with is your comment about your abs!

    I’m not getting mine back, but you clearly have yours, sistah!

  20. Jennifer Shelton says

    Just watched this with my 4 year old. I laughed through it! She noticed you weren’t wearing a dress, but said it was a great song because that’s her favorite song. Really? Would’ve never guessed…

    I watched the video tonight for the first time. My husband and 10 year old grandson came upstairs to ask me what was so funny. So, the three of us watched it together. Now they knew why I was laughing and laughed along with me. Three weeks ago I had both of my grandsons with me for five days – a 4 year old, Hayden, and Casey who is 10 years old. Casey has been spending weekends with me since he was 2 years old, but this was Hayden`s first visit. He never stopped talking for 5 days! If he said Grandma once, he said it 1,000 times. I can still hear him calling me:Grandma, I need food – Grandma, I have to go potty – Grandma, it`s not bedtime. It`s not dark yet – and on, and on and on! It took me days to recover! I know he`ll be back to stay overnight but I`ll need at least a weeks notice so I can rest up, get out my roller skates and get ready for my precious little monkey, Hayden! :)

    I love this video and..well..all of your videos! They are hilarious a very relatable! Was awesome meeting you at your book signing yesterday and I look forward to checking out more stuff on your blog. Congrats on the success and also thank you! I think a lot of fellow moms need this (along with an extra 10 min in the bathroom to eat cookies haha..wait what?)..take care!

  23. Jessica says

    Very cute. Thanks for having a realistically messy house too and not just scattering a few items around the place. And great song choice. “Let It Go” are probably the best three words to describe the only path to sanity as a parent. =)
