I’m Not Fancy

Categories giggles

Guys, I’m literally dying laughing right now. Literally. Like, my heart is about to stop from laughing so hard.

You know that Iggy Azalea song Fancy? OK, I didn’t until the girls and I finished our book on tape and my iPod wasn’t charged and we had no other option but silence or radio. Also, when I say silence I mean that in the loudest way possible—because a house with two girls is never silent.

So to buy myself relative “silence” (ie space in my own head with chatter blocked ever-so slightly with the radio, thus creating more noise), I flipped that radio dial so freakin fast. For my sanity.

Fancy came on and the chorus immediately lodged itself in my brain. So much so, in fact, that I’ve been torturing the girls with breaking out into song for at least a week now. As soon as I start Sam covers her ears and shrieks. But Ellie has been feeling it.

It gets me every time.

When my friend Rena (who has been my Golden Goddess of Link Sharing lately) sent me The Girls with Glasses doing a parody called Not Fancy, I was immediately intrigued. And I have not stopped giggling to myself about it.

[Note: unlike the actual song, this version is safe for kids]

I mean, this is my life. Only (ironically) fancier. I immediately subscribed to their channel and as soon as I get a second I’m totally binge watching their shorts. I just need a second to myself and no work to feel guilty about not doing.

That will be tough though. After all, We’re just moms working hard, lots of laundry to fold. Insert laugh/cry emoji here. It might be my favorite. #sorrynotsorry.
