A Mom’s Take on Maui’s “You’re Welcome” Song from Disney’s Moana

Maybe it was because my 5-year-old decided to write a letter to Santa about all the things mom had done wrong that day.

Maybe it was because my 3-year-oldĀ refused to let Ā me brush her teeth for the umpteenth time until I showed her pictures of rotten teeth on the Internet.

Or maybe it’s just that writer’s block will do strange things to a person.

But that night, when I watched Disney’s Moana for the first time with my husband, and I really sympathized with Maui when Moana came to drag him off on her quest. When he sang the “You’re Welcome” song, all I could think of was my own kids.

I’m always in need of a creative outlet, so I decided to write a spoof of the song. For fun, I added some funny parenting pictures for your viewing pleasure. The singing is by a talented artist, Celeste Notley-Smith. Check it out and let me know what you think!
