parents are rock stars

The other night I heard something about the 2012 Grammys coming up. That isn't important information. But it did give me the idea for this post…


I am a parent, so I'm living the life of a rock star. If you are a parent you are probably just like a rock star too.

What do rock stars do? They play music and/or sing while their fans listen. Me too!

I perform updated versions of classics and involve my audience. I never rely on auto-tune. And I can improvise lyrics by rhyming "poop" with "scoop" on the fly.  

Rock stars have groupies who follow them everywhere. I do too!

And mine are really loyal and dedicated.

Some rock stars take drugs. I take drugs too!

Rock stars stay up late. Me too! 

I generally do hardcore things like internet window shop for shoes I'll never buy. Sometimes I'll even put them in my shopping cart before closing the browser. I live dangerously.

Many rock stars treat their bodies like shit. I do this too!

Then I make up for it by eating their weight in ice cream after they go to bed. Overindulgence. Just like a rock star would do it. 

But the best part is that rock stars feel fortunate and fulfilled. They are happy doing what they do.


Me too.

Yep. Parents are just uncelebrated  rock stars. 

Now someone please hand me a few million dollars and a Grammy. I'll wait. 


Well, this blog DID get nominated for a 2012 Bloggie. And it has been compared to the blog equivalent of getting an Oscar or a Grammy. Holy crap! Except nobody gets a trophy. Or those goody bags with computers and diamonds in them. And it isn't on TV. And I'm not even eligible for the $20.12 grand prize. However, I am relieved that nobody dresses up and walks on a red carpet for this. That part would make me throw up because I've lost the ability to wear heels and walk at the same time. 

I'm in the parenting category, scroll down just past the middle of the page and you'll see that I'm not delusional. Plus, you can VOTE!

Also? It is easy to vote. You don't even have to leave a urine sample this time.

    LOL this is so funny! I voted for you! How could I not after that urine sample ending?

  2. You know you have my vote!

    When I’m awake all night tonight, I’M SO TOTALLY GOING TO REMEMBER THAT ROCK STARS DO THIS, TOO! I’m just gonna call it “up partying” instead of “cleaning up vomit.” Parenting – it’s all about the perspective. ๐Ÿ˜‰


  3. Tina says:

    This explains so much, I’m a rockstar! You always crack me up.

  4. Sam says:

    Ah, i thought i voted, but i didn’t. Aparently after you click on your blog, you then have to scroll all the way down and press submit at the bottom. Doh!

    Mommy brain strikes again!

  5. K says:

    Voted! Now if you’ll excuse me, the kids are in bed and there’s ice cream with my name on it. Like a rock star.

  6. Laura Wilson says:

    I’m so with you on the treating my body like shit and staying up too late. I really try to avoid singing to my kids because nobody wants to hear me sing, not even a one year old. Thanks for all the laughts!

  7. Sarah says:

    I voted for your blog. You are so talented and make me laugh daily when sometimes its difficult to find humor when you are running around after 2 small kids and are exhausted. Thank you and good luck!

  8. Laura Wilson says:

    That was laughs not laughTs. Also, how do I vote? Do I have to vote in all the categories?

  9. WMom says:

    Eating their weight in ice cream! Yes!

  10. Flalways says:

    HAHAHA!!!!! I also sometimes put things into my cart before I close the browser. I like living on the edge!

  11. Amber Dusick says:

    Perspective. Word. Thanks Beth!

  12. Kim says:

    voted! I’ve also had underpants thrown at me, yeah, I’m a rockstar.

  13. Amber Dusick says:

    LOL, thanks for checking! It isn’t the most obvious site, that is for sure.

  14. Amber Dusick says:

    Enjoy the ice cream & thanks!

  15. Emily says:

    I’ve lost the ability to wear high heels and walk too! LOL! Thanks for the chuckle. Cheers!

    PS: I also voted for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Amber Dusick says:

    No, I don’t think you have to vote in all categories, you can just vote in one.

  17. Amber Dusick says:

    Ooooh, good one! LOL Do diapers count as underwear?

  18. Leah says:

    My two-year-old will not let me sing to him. How bad do you have to be to have a two-year-old scream NO! every time you try to sing something? Though he more than makes up for it with the spontaneous hugs and I love yous that he’s started doing recently.

  19. Rebekah says:

    I’m thrilled to know I’m living the life of a rock star! Now, where’s my fleet of automobiles and housekeeper crew?

  20. Alexandra says:

    Voted for you too! You should have the song “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” from Monty python looping on your blogsite. I run after 3 little boys (4, 2, 1) and have #4 on the way. Sometimes (ok most times) I feel run-down and impatient…but you infuse humour and levity into the day-to-day stuff that I know (in a few years) I’ll miss terribly (so I’ve been told). You should be nominated for sainthood…I’ll start a petition to the American Recording Academy and work on that Grammy. When I catch up on my sleep…like 2027.

  21. Amber Dusick says:

    Is it an out of practice thing with the heels you think? Or are our bodies all out of alignment from carrying kids on a hip for years? Thanks!

  22. Distractseasily says:

    The really dedicated groupies made me laugh in complete understanding.

  23. Amber Dusick says:

    Your fleet of automobiles are probably just much, much smaller than expected. I even have several lamborghinis that I step on regularly.

  24. Amber Dusick says:

    Yep, that missing it later part. Exactly. I have to go find that song & listen to it now.

  25. Cheril says:

    You wait until the kids are in bed before noshing on ice cream?! I hide out behind the pantry door a couple times a day and pretend like I’m doing grown-up kitchen things, like preparing meals or inventorying my pantry. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. Beth says:

    I am so glad that I am not the only one who can’t remember the words to the simplest of nursery rhymes. I have made up verses of “hush little baby” that will probably confuse my kid for life.

  27. Amber Dusick says:

    I go to the pantry to eat chocolate but I can NEVER pull off ice cream in there, I’d totally get busted. Too far from the freezer.

  28. Dena says:

    Is it sad that while I’m reading this the song “Just like a Rock Star” – sung by the Fresh Beat Band on Nick Jr. decided to make an appearance in my brain? I really should start listening to more adult music.

  29. Mel says:

    I voted for you!
    Good luck!

  30. Kim says:

    hahahaha that’s hilarious. I also have an eclectic and impressive fleet of cars under my feet.

  31. Amber Dusick says:

    LOL, “hush little baby” is the BEST one for that! I always wind up buying completely crazy stuff. “And if that dragon’s flame goes out Mamas gonna buy you a water spout. And if that water spout goes dry Mamas gonna buy you a pickled eye.” It always gets weird.

  32. meekasmommy says:

    Awesome – will be heading over to vote. And then eating some ice cream in your honor later on tonight ๐Ÿ˜‰

  33. Paula says:

    I can one up you: I get FAN ART!!! All the time. I swear my spawn are trying to deforest large parts of Canada. Lately, they’ve been portraying me as a robotic spider with no body and huge teeth.

    In addition to the fan art, I often find graffiti around the house clearly done by my groupies. You know the age? Where the kids are finally learning about letters, reading and it all clicks? I’ve hit it 3 times now and I’ve got the walls and furniture covered with MAMA written in indelible marker to prove it.

    Nothing says rock star like graffiti and fan art. ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. Emily says:

    The last picture is so precious I got teary eyed! You’re the best crappy artist ever. PS I voted for you! You certainly deserve the honor.

  35. Amber Dusick says:

    No, not sad. But I’m incredibly thankful that I don’t know that song!

  36. Amber Dusick says:

    Ice cream in my honor! My husband does sometimes address me as, “Your Icecreamness”

  37. Amber Dusick says:

    Fan art! YES! Good one!

  38. sarah says:

    hahaha i do the same thing!

  39. Megan Coates says:

    What does it say about you when you start singing along to Jake and the Neverland Pirates in the car and your child tells you that you need to stop singing because the people on the radio are trying to sing? Clearly, my groupies need further instruction ๐Ÿ˜€

  40. sarah says:

    the last picture should be printed, framed, and put on the wall. then when people ask to see pics of your kids at the store you could have a little wallet sized print out of it to show too lol

  41. says:

    Just last week my husband was questioning how every single tablespoon in the kitchen drawer ended up in the dishwasher … Then he goes, “You have been self medicating again.” Yes, he knows me well enough to know that I OD with tablespoons of ice cream throughout the day ๐Ÿ˜€

    Voted. You. are. FANTASTIC!

  42. japolina says:

    This was a great post. My kids are teens and I don’t feel like a rock star these days!

  43. Hofmama says:

    I voted for you, rock star! Even today, after scrubbing poop out of the carpet, I still laughed at your post ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. Amber Dusick says:

    I get that sometimes too! Or they tell me to stop so THEY can sing.

  45. Amber Dusick says:

    I’ve just now realized why I’m always complaining that we don’t have enough spoons. THIS is the reason!

  46. Amber Dusick says:

    Poop out of the carpet. Human or animal? Either way.

  47. says:

    ..did you notice that the best parenting weblog category is BELOW best pet or animal weblog?!! -and of course I voted for you. I live in the Netherlands and have shared your blog with many of my Dutch mama friends here. your take on life with small kids is great!

  48. says:

    My little one gets a vip pass and is in his wrap all day. Love this blog to bits

  49. Amanda says:

    Sigh, one more post which makes me think we are destined to be friends . . . I didn’t think any one else window shopped for shoes online and put them in the cart before closing the browser. In fact, I do it so frequently that I recently complained to my hubby about a shoe order that was taking forever to be delivered. Three weeks I spent wondering about it before I checked the site only to realize I never actually placed the order.

    I hide in the pantry to eat chocolate too but I recently found out that if I eat candy they don’t like, such as Red Hots, I can leave it out on the counter and they don’t even care. I wish they made chocolate covered Red Hots.

    p.s. I voted for you!

  50. tarina says:

    LOL my 3 year old covers my husband’s mouth with his hand when he tries to sing and tells him “no. Mommy sing.” haha!

  51. Rebecca says:

    Voted for you! Reading your blog always makes me feel better that there are other people out there who are as run down as I am….I said I would never not wear heels, that they were for old people. Or that I would never go out of the house with spit up on my shoulder.

  52. Melanie G says:

    i voted too! love your blog

  53. junipersprig aka Joanne says:

    You got my vote easily!! Thanks for the laughs. Your unfiltered expression of parenthood is uplifting. I also love that you illustrate your youngest in just underpants. How true, how true.

  54. esther says:

    Ah, a rock-star… that explains everything! Especially my strange inability to ever be alone… yesterday i hid on the stairs with the last of my “for extreme emergencies only” chocolates. (my husband finds the wrappers mysteriously stashed around the house) and my two year old daughter came over as I was slowly taking tiny bites and savoring each one, said “oooh mommy, cake!” and popped the whole thing in her mouth. bliss.
    voted! you are awesome.

  55. Kristen says:

    I love this. I too, live dangerously, with Pottery Barn. Someday I’m going to accidentally order the $12,396 worth of merchandise I have placed in my cart. Probably due to hunger and/or sleep deprivation. Anyway, I feel better about the PlayDoh that got ground into the carpet this morning. I’m just living the rock star life.
    Oh, and I voted for you too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  56. On the plus side, no one takes pictures of our mom bums at the beach and criticizes our cellulite.

  57. I sing pretty well and my 3.5 year old has always hated my singing. I’m allowed to sing only the songs he wants to hear when he wants to hear them. If I just sing to the radio he starts yelling at me. Kids are weird.

  58. oilandgarlic says:

    You always make me laugh. Had to vote for you!

  59. Katie says:

    I heard once that some big singer…Mariah Carey? Maybe?….her kid hated it when she sang and cried. I think it’s a kid thing. Mine won’t let me sing either. I recite a kids book I memorized instead. They like that. Also, my 2 year old has starting hugging me and saying “I like you mommy.” He used to love me. I’m not sure what happened ๐Ÿ˜‰

  60. fiona says:

    I have lost the ability to walk at all due to 10 month old groupie hanging on to my ripped ‘rock star” jeans and have a secret stash of chocolate hidden from everyone to self administer as needed frequently. now I’m off to vote now for you & my groupie no 2 has crashed on top of me making it impossible to move away from pc- now where was that top i saw the other day too ๐Ÿ˜€

  61. Vote! Because you can’t not win. You’re a rockstar!!!

    Except for the staying up late part, I do everything else…. Does getting up during all hours count?

    And my audience just learned to clap! It’s so exciting!

  62. L Cooper says:

    I am SO a rock star as I pump from my hospital bed. My body is way past a wonderland.

  63. Larissa says:

    Crying I’m laughing so hard!! If you’ve got more lyrics, I’d love to see them ๐Ÿ˜€

  64. Larissa says:

    Me too with the poop! I’m living the life of the rockstar’s housekeeping service ๐Ÿ™‚ It was my first intro to cleaning carpet spots. Yikes! Prunes and beige carpet do NOT go together. Why does beige carpet even exist? Must’ve been created by somebody who likes cleaning carpets. Every day.

  65. Robin says:

    Awesome! This made me feel so much better. I live like a rockstar too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  66. Kara says:

    Voted for you, Amber!

  67. Krystal says:

    Just wanted to say, I LOVE your blog! I discovered it today and I may or may not have allowed my son to watch an extra episode of “Chugginton” so I could read some of your older posts. Also, my sister just had a baby a week ago and is in the “I have no idea what I’m doing! Breastfeeding sucks! Why am I crying all the time?!” Phase. I read several of your posts to her over the phone and we were both laughing hysterically by the end of the call. Thanks so much!

  68. Amber Dusick says:

    Ha ha, I didn’t notice that!

  69. Amber Dusick says:

    Ha, that is funny that you fake order so often you messed up the real thing! Love that!

  70. Amber Dusick says:

    That is a VERY good point!

  71. Kelley ward says:

    I love your blog 2!! I’m a stay at home mom blogger article writer mom of three boys. I laugh every time I read your posts!

  72. Amber Dusick says:

    Thank you! (And wow, I remember those days that your sister is in. Well, sorta, it is rather hazy)

  73. Voted! Good Luck! Your blog always puts a smile on my face and sometimes makes me giggle so much I tinkle myself…. ahhhh the joys of motherhood!

  74. Cristal says:

    LOVE your blog…already voted…and Kristen’s comment about ordering 12K worth of PotteryBarn merchandise made me LOL!

  75. Hofmama says:

    Human. I’m potty training my two year and my autistic four year old. It’s an adventure in poop.

  76. sara says:

    We sing an amazing song about diaper changes that we made up…i even hold out an imaginary mic for my boys to sing their favorite part. The song is about poop not tasting good on toast ๐Ÿ™‚ my 4 yr. old gets excited when the 15 month old has a poopy diaper because we get to sing it.

  77. Galadriel says:

    Hi Amber,

    You’re definitely a rock star in my book!

  78. Kazkos says:

    Great post!
    I regularly get groped by my fans and my rooms get trashed daily.
    The life of a rock star…

  79. k says:

    I voted. For you and xkcd (different category, awesome site).

  80. Your first cartoon made me think of my two-year-old first cousin once removed. Her parents are raising her in a woodsy Oregon commune and, at the clothing-optional soaking springs, she recently learned an important word. Then she came to visit all her east coast family, where she suddenly commenced singing, for reasons no-one could determine, “Twinkle twinkle little penis.”

  81. janine says:

    Voted. Maybe you’ll win a gift certificate at Target? ๐Ÿ™‚

  82. Dusty says:

    I voted, and shared with my FB friends ๐Ÿ™‚

  83. denise says:

    I just voted for you =). I love reading your posts!

  84. Mummy4 says:

    I really love your blog. As a mum of 4 who is being treated for depression you really put a lot of things into perspection for me, and helps me see I am not the only mum muddling through parenting. Reading your blog always makes me smile. Thank you x

  85. Sally says:

    I LOVE this! Such a truth!

  86. Natalie B says:

    oh man, love it so much! I started losing the words pretty much by the second line in. One of my favorite things when my baby boy came along was singing him pop hits (like Elton John songs) with completely different words… all about poop, and pee, and milk, etc.

  87. Chris Carter says:

    LOVE THIS Amber!!! Once again, you hit home with all the hilarious things we mothers do. Thanks for all your work….and making
    us moms smile, laugh, and tinkle in our pants a little. I voted for you!!
    PS: found your email! lol (It is rather small!)

  88. Nicky says:

    Just voted….my fav blog! Yes, it appears that there are LOTS of rockstars!

  89. Somewhere there has to be a joke about never knowing who you will wake up next to. I have a husband and two sons. It’s a rare morning that it’s just me & DH. Usually, it’s one if not both sons in bed with us.

  90. Jennifer J says:

    To the tune of “I’m a little teapot”:
    I am a little baby, yes-sir-ree
    I like to poop and I like to pee
    When I fill my diaper, then you’ll see
    You’ll see how stinky a baby can be.

    Must be sung at least twice through during every diaper change.

    I voted for you. They didn’t make me sign over my firstborn child in order to vote. Amazing.

  91. Lidia says:

    It’s actually a great song. I find that it makes my life much more enjoyable to like their music. ๐Ÿ™‚

  92. Bernita says:

    As a grandmother relate all the way! The Grammy is coming years later when you see these little ones succeed, become good citizens and begin raising their own with more knowledgeable parenting skills. The most important job we do in life is parenting and most of us have no training for it. I am a strong advocate of required parent training along with and priority to lemaze, breathing exercise, etc. for pregnancy and delivery and nursing. Help us be better parents!!! It’s our and the world;s future!!! What could be a more important performance. Here’s to a Grammy for every parent! You deserve it!!!

  93. Meggin D says:

    Me too!
    Whatcha eating mum?? Uh..(as I try to swallow) a sandwich?? Some fruit??? …

  94. Kittie says:

    Voted for you! Good luck! ๐Ÿ™‚

  95. Amy g says:

    You have my vote! Best of luck.

  96. Cynthia says:

    Voted! ๐Ÿ˜€ Good luck Amber!

  97. Melissa says:

    Omg, my 2 yr daughter loves that song, I so know what you are talking about. It’s the song she sings for hours on end when she should be sleeping.

    Fabulous post by the way, gotta love living like a rock star!

  98. Margaret says:

    Love the breakfast at 3pm part, thought I was the only one going that long with nothing to eat (a lot of the time it’s due to rushing about getting ready for a day out with my baby, ironically making sure he’s fed a proper breakfast and packing a baby bag full of baby lunch,snacks,drinks etc for a whole day out while I don’t get a chance to eat till after whatever baby activity is over with)
    Off to put my vote in now, LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog!!
    Thanks for making me laugh out loud on a regular basis ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  99. Rebecca says:

    God I love your blog!!! Found you via Huffington Post about a month ago and love, love, love your posts. Always leave me laughing. Definitely voted for you, hope you win!!!

  100. Joanne says:

    I can up you on that one- My 3yr old ASD has no idea yet about potty training- But he sure knows about Poo. I had poop on his tv, a book, the cupboard, the floor, his fingers plus more- in the time it took me to walk downstairs and check the washing, put the dryer on and get back upsatirs…

  101. Curleequoo says:

    As a first time mom-to-be on strict bedrest there are few things that make me laugh these days, except your blog!!! It’s pretty much been a heaven-send for my psyche as I wait out the days until my boy arrives…only to have more psyche-challenging days for different reasons, lol! So other than a lame thank you, I can say you definitely have my vote…even if you don’t get an “award” ๐Ÿ™‚

  102. Katie says:

    My fave so far! Go rock stars!

  103. Raych says:

    lol funny stuff! inspiring words! and yes, perspective at its finest* im a rockstar with a fan base of 3 ! love ya work! xox

  104. Lara says:

    I’ll vote. I love your blog. You are wonderful. I would really like to see a Crappy Pictures cookbook for picky eaters or a Crappy Guide to travelling with kids or something like that in the future. I could see something like that doing exceedingly well, even at the bookstore…being bought by people who haven’t even read your blog. I’d like to see you take this crappy thing all the way!

  105. grandmavess says:

    I didn’t see any where to vote!?!?!?!?!

  106. Melissa says:

    If it makes you feel any better, yesterday I was singing to my 6 month old and my 2.5 year old came up and said shh quiet mommy and covered my mouth. I didn’t think I was THAT bad

  107. erika says:

    I love that!

  108. Tashajk says:

    I voted for you. I think. The layout of the voting page is a little confusing. But that’s not your fault.

    And I just want to say that my husband is working on his PhD thesis and procrastinates by reading your posts because they make me laugh so hard he has to stop working and “see what’s so funny.” Then he starts laughing too and reads all your archives ๐Ÿ™‚ (For the sake of his thesis thank you for not having too many yet!)

  109. Alayne says:

    After my daughter was born, I wore holes in the right knee of every. single. pair. of jeans I owned. Down on the floor for a diaper, down again for a toy, down to play, down again to clean up puke, down to …. you get the point, always right knee first. Now, that may (or may not) be how the rock stars get holes in their jeans, but hey, we even wear the same kind of trendy clothes without spending the big bucks!

    I voted for your (very un)crappy blog. Best of luck!

  110. coley says:

    I absolutely LOVE your blog and show it to everyone I know…I voted for you!!!

  111. Ann Wells says:

    Beth – too funny, I just spent my rock star hours from 2 am to 4:30 am “up partying” last Sunday night. Whooo hoooo!! lol

  112. Ann Wells says:

    Voted, went to my email; nothing there. Voted, went to my email; nothing there. Voted, THEN read the message “It may take some time to arrive, but if you haven’t received it within a day, send me a message… laughed at myself then figured you’ll get three votes from me tomorrow!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  113. Ellie Conda says:

    How about stage makeup? Wearing a light green facial mask resulted in my 9 month old audience gasp, then break out in spontaneous peals of laughter.

  114. Darcie says:

    This was more funny since I just finished my “finally got those damn kids to bed” bowl of ice cream!! lol

  115. mummamusing says:

    I have voted for you too! You always make me laugh ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  116. Mama of twins... says:

    I voted for you. I glanced at the other parenting blogs and you are by far the best… I love reading your blog. Every post hits home and resonates. ๐Ÿ™‚

  117. Kelly says:

    Another vote. I don’t read a lot of blogs but always check this one.

  118. Tomorrow morning at 3am I shall remember I’m a rock star! Thank you, Amber.

    Didn’t Nickelback dedicate a song to us…?

  119. Hope says:

    Thanks for making me laugh. AGAIN. Would you STOP?
    No, don’t, please!
    Love the fans following you everywhere and the pic of the bathroom. Ah yes.

    Best of luck in the vote!

  120. You are a Mom Rockstar just for making us laugh everyday! Thanks!

  121. haley says:

    I don’t even have kids and I love your blog!

  122. Katie says:

    You will get a “Grammy” some day when your children have children. I hear that is the best reward for surviving parenthood with small children…

  123. yay! congrats on the nom

  124. ok. So for my college class I had to sign up for a blog and follow someone. I am so glad I found you. I have six kids and the things you blog about has happened to me at one time or the other. Imagine how lucky I am that I get to sit around reading your blog, laughing my butt off (thanks for the weight loss), and do homework at the same time!

  125. Lisacng says:

    Um…you rock and this post rocks. I love how you keep it funny, raunchy, and sweet all at the same time. Of course I voted for you!

  126. Great. Now I “Just LIke A Rock Star” from Fresh Beat Band in my head. It totally hasn’t been there ALL day ๐Ÿ˜‰

  127. Rae Anni says:

    All my children are adults now. So we have dogs to clean up after. Things have not changed much. I clean up pee and poop. Wash and brush their hair. I do laundry too for my dogs. They have pillows and blankets, sweaters and jackets. Childless mothers need something to keep the rock star status.

  129. Mindy Condon says:

    Don’t rock stars wake up with people in their beds who they are suprised to see? That’s totally me. Just this morning, I woke up with someone who snuck in next to me and I thought, “how the heck did you get in here?!?” Also, I’m guessing that rock stars, from time to time, get peed on by these unexpected bed visitors, a byproduct of too much partying. That happens to me WAAAAY too often.

  130. Rachel says:

    I voted for you! I also never get a chance to eat. I keep having my lunch at 3:30 after spending a long time feeling weak and dizzy!

    I’m a rockstar too! Only I’m not allowed to sing. As soon as I even hum a tune my 2.5yo yells at me ‘STOP MUMMY!!!’. I don’t have fans, I have critics.
