It’s a truth universally acknowledged that parenting is one of the hardest jobs in the world. There’s just really nothing to top raising an entire person (or more than one!) when you haven’t showered in three days or slept through the night.
Here to tell us exactly how it is: South Carolina mom Machel Green, who also brought the world this Britney Spears-infused baby announcement. Just like “Baby, One More Time,” her ode to parenting is a take-off of a pop hit.
“Cool Mom,” set to the tune of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” takes us through a busy day in the life of the aforementioned cool mom, from “cleaning up the messes made,” to “getting stares from everyone” in the Costco parking lot.
The overriding refrain that keeps her going? “I ain’t getting paid to be a cool mom/I’m still the bomb, a cool mom!” It’s cheerful and familiar sentiment to anyone accustomed to the exhausting, if adorable, demands of our littlest loved ones.
Machel caps the parody off with what is the easily the comedic highlight of the flick. She and her girlfriends make it to the club for a mom’s night out. “I still got it,” she whispers triumphantly, as she collapses into bed at quarter to nine.
