Crazy Ex-Girlfriend I'm So Maternal The CW


On today's episode we're
talking allergies.
Peanuts, dairy, eggs...
how do we let kids be kids
but still keep them safe?

Parenting ain’t harrowing,
demanding or dramatic!
Let’s face facts,
moms say that when
they’re not this good at it!

Step aside ladies,
give your babies to a
Carol Brady level matriarch.
The only hard part of it is,
how hard I’ll hit this
when I knock it out of the park!

Your hands
[Raise ‘em up]
Your glass
[Raise it up]
Low expectations
[Raise ‘em up]
Your children,
I’m gonna raise ‘em up!
It’s instinctual,
I’m a natural,
I am tireless multitasktical
My mom gave the flame
and it’ll burn eternal
Damn I’m so maternal!

So maternal!
So maternal!
So maternal!

Tommy lunch!

You're listening to "Mom Time Daily"
and we're so honored to have
super mom Rebecca Bunch on
our podcast today!

Rebecca, you are one of the most
incredible moms I have ever seen
even though you don't have any
children and you've only been
babysitting for less than an hour.
How do you do it?

First of all I want to say what an
honor it is for you to have me on
your podcast.

You know, I think I just instinctively
'get' how to be a mom and that's what
sets me apart from other 'mothers'.

Agreed! Other mothers are losers!

Heh, yes.

Gonna keep ‘em warm
Gonna keep ‘em safe
Gonna keep their homework
free of mistakes
If a kid get hungry
I’ll feed his face
A real wholesome meal,
piece of cake

Here have a piece of cake.

[let’s bring it up]
The volume
[DJ bring it up]
My spotlight-light
[bring it up]
Your children, you're gonna
let me bring them up
It comes easily, it’s effortless
Even Gwyneth said
"You’re the best at this”
on her well respected
online journal...

Good God!
I’m so maternal!

So maternal
So maternal
So maternal
So maternal

Parenting is the most rewarding
experience in the world.
If you follow some common sense
guidelines you are bound to succeed.

Shut up!
