Cool Mom Tunes: The Song that Sums Up My Life Right Now
Maybe when you regularly Google search things like “5-year old sleep regression insanity” and “what sort of voodoo invokes the sorcery of Merlin’s Magic Sleep Suit 😡🤬?!” or order your umpteenth copy of Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child (whilst cursing the hubris that purged the first TWO!) Spotify knows this song is your life anthem and adds it as a sad, sardonic, addendum to every playlist you make, no matter how pop-y, no matter how peppy.
Thanks, all-knowing internet, for the reminder I’m hangin out half-dead every day.

P.S. I swear I love my kids.
