True Life: Mommy Wants to Be a Rapper

Yep. I wanna be a rapper. Well, not necessarily a rapper, but I would make a really good backup dancer or groupie. Mommy has sure “got back”. Mommy can definitely “get low”.  Mommy sure does know how to “shake her tail feather”. I mean, how do you think Mommy met Daddy?  AND…that’s a post for a different site. 

The truth is that  I don’t want to be a rapper or a backup dancer, but I do desire to be famous…for something. I think that would be nice.

Okay, it not even about being truly “famous,” but couldn’t I, at least once, get the kind of celebrity reaction from my children that Daddy gets when he walks in the door or into a room. Or can’t I get those admiring looks that strangers give to my husband when he takes all three kids to the grocery store, instead of the “wow, she has her hands full” looks that I get?

Being a Mom is not glamorous. It does not make me a lot of money and it does not get me a lot of fans–well, adult fans at least.

So yes, I wanna be a famous rapper. I like to rap. I rap about going to the potty and I rap to calm the crying baby. I rap about after-school activities and I even turned Baa Baa Black Sheep into a rap. 

What else do I want to be you ask? 

Mommy wants to be on the Olympic Women’s Soccer Team.

Mommy wants to be an Actor.

Mommy wants to be an Entrepreneur.

Unfortunately, Mommy is already thirty. Mommy will not make the US Women’s Soccer Team and she is not good at acting. Mommy also doesn’t have an entrepreneurial, award-winning, million-dollar idea to pursue.

BUT, what Mommy DOES have is love for her children–an abundance of it.

Mommy has guts– to continually tackle each day with new energy and zeal.

Mommy has faith–that life won’t always be so challenging and tiring.

Mommy has strength–to pull herself and her family through any hardships.

Mommy has HEART and Mommy loves YOU.

Because thats what Mommy does, ALL DAY, EVERYDAY.

So, maybe I wanna be a rapper OR maybe  I just rap because I love you

Either way, you know you’ve been waiting for this, so here you go:

I’m mommin so hard yeah that’s what I do 
Ever since had little baby you

We had a big wedding, yeah it was fun  – then in my belly you became the bun
Then two more buns, yeah I said that’s what I do 
and now I have love for you, you and you
The first days were crazy yeah they were nuts
We had to suck it up and have some guts
From diapers and pacis, to bottle and breast 
and always havin you glued to my chest
You’ve gotten bigger and stronger and now you eat food 
at the same time you’ve also developed an at-ti-tude
From school to dance, the gym and art 
it seems like we are never ever a part
And that’s OK, cause that’s what I DO
but I do need date nights with daddy too
Y’all keep growing and changing all the time
But I’m gonna stick with you because I’m in my prime  
I mom real hard yeah that’s what I do 
and I’m gonna keep doing it until I turn blue
Mommin so hard yeah that’s what I do 
and I bet it’s the same for you, you and you
When you mom like a boss and your brain starts the fog 
that’s when you check out Tampa Bay Moms Blog 
Were a one stop shop for all things Mom 
And if you live in Tampa you know we’re the bomb! 

Boom. Drop the Mic.

Nicole is a ringleader for a circus show that travels around South Tampa entertaining the unexpected public with total cuteness, tantrums and crazy antics. Headlining the show is Nicole’s eldest daughter, Payton, the circus’ five-year old, well-mannered star performer, her three-year old son, Weston, who has energy for days and could tire out the energizer bunny and baby Harper, almost one, who will make you question whether or not she is a cabbage patch doll until she begins to wave at you incessantly. To be honest, sometimes Nicole feels as though these little monkeys are directing the show and that her role has been demoted to lion tamer. However, with the help of her husband, Josh, to keep the show in business, Nicole's family continues to write their own script and dominate the stage. While the performers sleep, Nicole enjoys writing about her struggles and triumphs as a wife and mother. Her posts have become a real life outlet for her to share her unique momma parenting style through honest and personal stories about being a wife and a mom of three at the young(ish) age of thirty. She hopes that her writing style will be enjoyed by many, as her posts tend to combine honest opinions and thoughtful insight on pertinent parenting topics, delivered with a comedic tone. This overwhelmed momma blogs on her own site and also sells women and children's clothes on Poshmark. You can follow her by visiting her website at and her Postmark closets at and
