We here at Laughing Moms would not be Laughing Moms if it weren’t for the amazing dads in our lives. We wanted to show our appreciation for great dads everywhere and this parody of “Warriors” by Imagine Dragons is the result. Fathers.
Last Thanksgiving, my family went on a road trip to visit family in Florida. We listened to “Warriors” for hours straight. Literally, hours. When my husband finds a song he loves, he plays it continuously. Especially when he wants to stay awake while driving. So, after hearing “Warriors” for probably the 500th time in a row (fortunately, it’s a dang good song), the idea for “Fathers” was born and my husband and I wrote it together on our drive. It was so fun to see this song come to life. We’re so grateful to the many talented dads who sang for this video and who were in the video. Imagine Dragons are not easily covered. They’re amazing and we do not touch the tip of their talent iceberg, but it was sure fun trying!

The Lovely, Yummy, Almighty COCONUT! (AKA nut-bearing monkey-face)
I love coconuts. Maybe I went to college in Hawaii because of my love for coconuts, or maybe my love for coconuts started in Hawaii. I’m not really sure, but I do know that I love coconuts. I also married a Polynesian so it would be acceptable to regularly incorporate coconuts into my daily fanfare. Well, that’s not the only reason. He also looked really hot in his baby-blue security guard shirt that he wore for his on-campus job. And every time I heard him laugh, I couldn’t contain my happiness, and he laughs all the time. I knew I would be forever happy and after almost 13 years of marriage, I’m happier than ever. But back to the coconut. Not the one I married, the other, smaller brown ball of happiness that makes ordinary meals become delightsome. Have I told you I love coconuts? I know, I know, I’ve already told you. So, now let me tell you some of the reasons why I love coconuts.
My favorite coconut climbing a coconut tree = LOVE…..<3…..<3….. Doesn’t get much better than that 🙂
