“O Diaper Change” – Where My Mind Goes When Singing Christmas Carols

It’s December! How did that happen? I will admit, I am the kind of person who does not want an influx of Christmas songs any time before December 1 (unless it’s a well done spoof of course).

So when I caught myself humming “O Christmas Tree” to my son while I nursed him before his afternoon nap in EARLY NOVEMBER (we hadn’t even had Remembrance Day yet, what??) I knew I needed to change it up. I found myself reflecting on the last few years of parenthood, and the lyrics morphed into something more familiar to my hashtag mom life experiences.

So as a holiday gift to you, I present, “O Diaper Change.” A special shout out to my mom who noted I seemed to have a “bathroom theme” going on my Twitter feed (I tweet on toddler shenanigans so what do you expect?). And I’d also like to dedicate this ditty to my lovely Mother-in-Law. RIP those white pants you wore that time you changed a newborn diaper for me…

O Diaper Change - Christmas Carol Spoof

VERSE 1: Reflecting on life as a new parent…

O Baby Boo, O Baby Boo,
I think I heard a squirt or two.
O Baby Boo, O Baby Boo,
I think it’s time we change you.

Here you lay, naked on the change table,
When you let SPRAAAAY, the full volcano!!

O Baby Boo, O Baby Boo,
I wish I’d waited to change you.

VERSE 2: When you have a stone tile floor, and your now-toddler is wriggling on the change table…

O Baby Boo, O Baby Boo,
Just stop squirming wouldn’t you?
O Baby Boo, O Baby Boo,
This would be easy if you didn’t move.

What made me think, to give you my phone?
I was weak, now it’s smashed on the stone!

O Baby Boo, O Baby Boo,
I think it’s time we potty-trained you!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

PS: I highly recommend getting a glass screen protector for your phone! Since getting my Samsung Galaxy 8 in the summer, I’ve gone through two of them. But it’s sure cheaper than a new phone! Search glass screen protector on Amazon.

If you are looking for a great source for cloth diapers and more, one of my favourite online stores is Lagoon Baby. You get free shipping on orders of $99+ in Canada.
