“We’ll Never Be Rested” Lorde Parenting Parody

on January 12, 2014

I have been silent for almost two months. Don’t worry, the baby didn’t kill us in our sleep.

In fact, in those two months we went through a delightful little panic of:

STEP 1: OH MY GOD, HE WON’T SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT IN HIS OWN CRIB!!

STEP 2: Oh, when he sleeps in our bed, he sleeps soundly all night long. That’s rather pleasant.

STEP 3: OH MY GOD, HE’S SLEEPING IN OUR BED AND THAT’S AWFUL PARENTING!!

(Repeat x 2 months)

Spoiler alert for future blog: the week we decided to officially end him sleeping (ever) in our bed was also the last week he slept in our bed minus one spurious time, so that went fairly well.

But to those parents who never seem to get any sleep, I wanted to pass on this humorous link because you should never underestimate the creative genius of new parents:

Note: If you’ve never heard Lorde’s “Royals” song, (1) go listen to it first and (2) get out of the rock you’re under.

More posts coming in 2014, I promise!
