Isn’t It Ironic?!?

So yesterday morning after barely sleeping the night before, the first thing my children decided to do was to roleplay going to sleep…

Excellent!!

So with irony in mind I started thinking about one of my favourite tunes Ironic by Alanis Morissette and decided to tweek some of the lyrics..

Here it is:

A little girl who’d just turned 2,
She said she’d done a wee, but she’d done a sloppy poo,
It’s a sleepless night, after a bad day,
It’s a really smelly burp right in your face.
Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?

It’s like tantrums in a quiet place,
It’s a good old slap right round your face,
It’s the good advice that you don’t want to take,
Who would’ve thought, it figures.

Miss Piglet aged 2 was always car sick,
She’d be almost there then puke at the last minute.
She waited the whole damn journey to throw up,
And as the puke went all over me,
I thought “Well, isn’t this nice.”
And isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?

It’s like tantrums in a quiet place,
It’s a good old slap right round your face,
It’s the good advice that you don’t want to take,
Who would’ve thought, it figures.

A jump in a puddle when your not wearing wellie boots,
A breakdown in public but at home your only cute,
It’s like ten thousand shoes when all you need is a pair.
It’s leaving the house without wet wipes,
Then you get yoghurt in your hair.

And isn’t it ironic, don’t you think. A little too ironic, and yeah I really do think.

It’s like tantrums in a quiet place,
It’s a good old slap right round your face,
It’s the good advice that you don’t want to take,
Who would’ve thought, it figures.

Thanks Alanis, I feel better for getting that off my chest.

Now I found it tricky to find anything to rhyme with sandwich but my top ironic moment was when Piglet who doesn’t eat anything apart from pasta and cream cheese went to a party and ate a whole tuna sandwich!!

Whats your top ironic child related moment?
