The iPod meme, Mom version

My dear blog friend Elle hijacked the iPod meme and tweaked it to suit the sensibilities of Moms, tagging me with it. In her words, as well the instructions...
Here is the Mom version, composed in comfy clothes on a rainy Wednesday afternoon, dedicated to the Moms investing in the lives of their children. Enjoy and laugh today.

1. Put your iPod (or MP3 player) on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER HOW SILLY IT SOUNDS!
4. Tag some Moms you admire who could use a laugh and a song.

Bonus points if you can guess my two favorite bands! :-) However, I must say the shuffle feature did not adequately represent the diversity of music on my iPod...I do in fact own music apart from DCB and Third Day!

Did you catch the irony of the car line answer?

Anyone else up for a chuckle or two? I tag all you moms out there--feel free to grab the meme and let us know in the comments so we can see what your iPod has to say!

  1. Some of those were hilarious answers!! Loved the "Indescribable" for the bodily fluids, and the "Intoxicating" for how kids scare you. (Although I know that one is purely theoretical since your kids aren't quite old enough!) And your kids want to be Never Alone when they grow up?!

    Too fun. This is on my to do list. But right now I need to go to the grocery store and take my girl to the doctor.

  3. I sooo love these! Thanks for playing. I am convulsed in giggles over several of them--Revelation after a sleepless night (you betcha!) Do Not Move for stuff left on the floor (Freeze, buster!) and your personality as a Desperate People! So, so funny. The irony of your carpool should keep you smiling for days while in carpool. Thanks, friend.

    And by the way ... do you have my iPod? I have all these songs ;)

  5. There are SO many good ones on your list! I love:

    "WHAT DID YOU DO THE FIRST MORNING AFTER A SLEEPLESS NIGHT?
    Revelation by Third Day (Revelation)"

    "WHAT IS YOUR LIFE STORY AS A MOM?
    All These Lives by Daughtry (Daughtry)"

    and

    "HOW DO YOUR KIDS DESCRIBE YOU AS THEIR MOM?
    Thank You for Hearing Me by David Crowder Band (Can You Hear Us?)"

    But the BEST is

    "WHAT WILL YOUR MOM OF THE YEAR CERTIFICATE SAY?
    Lay It Down by Jennifer Knapp (Jennifer Knapp: The Collection)"

    I cheated. FirstHusband did mine while I put PinkGirl to bed the other night.

  6. Some of those were eerily appropriate (or even what we hope for)! I'm up for this one, but it might be a few days. Super fun!

  8. "Indescribable!" Hoo-boy! I'm still laughing out loud over that one. I can't wait to play.

  9. Love the bodily fluids answer! Especially since I had one of those moments today with Andrew. Pull-Ups are NOT made for such!

  10. Some of those were really funny! Wish I had an ipod to play along.
