Five on Friday: Lyrics on the Soundtrack to My Parenting Experience

 1. "Mama said there’d be days like this, there'd be days like this my mama said . ."    
      The Shirelles
      (I sang this one a lot when I was a new mother.)

2. “You talk way too much, you talk way too much . . .”   
      The Strokes
      (Ever feel like your ears are going to start bleeding?)

3. “It’s getting to the point, where I’m no fun anymore. And I’m sorry” 
      Crosby, Stills and Nash
      (When I feel like this is my reminder to cut out and do something fun already.)

4."You look like an angel. Walk like an angel. Talk like an 
     angel--but I got wise, you're the devil in disguise."
     Elvis Presley
     (Theme song for adorable mischief makers everywhere, 
      including one in particular at our house.)

 5.  “I don’t like you, but I love you. Seems like I’m always thinking of you, oh oh oh, you treat me badly. I love you madly.”
Smokey Robinson
(Apply it to dealing with a frustrating child and you will never think of this song as being sung to a potential lover again.)
