Inside the head of a toddler: The “Me Do It” rap

Ahhhh…the ‘Me Do It” phase. Toddler independence. Frustration. Angst. They all combine to thrown tantrums in our face, tear our hair out and slow down our every move. Like with most other things in motherhood, or indeed, parenthood, the most sensible way to get through it is to…well, laugh about it!

This latest instalment of the Inside the head of a toddler series requires a little bit of imagination from you. Yes come on folks bring it to the table as I basically need you to imagine that your toddler is a rapper from the Bronx, else this just ain’t going to fly.

OK so are you channelling a Bronx rapper? Yes? Good, so let’s do this…


Yo yo listen up, I got something to say, Mummy and Daddy pass the mic my way..

I wanna do it all, and do it good, best nobody messes in my hood!

Putting on my nappy, making my own milk, sticking my finger down the plughole in the kitchen sink

Yeah I don’t care when enough is enough, I’m a badass toddler, and I’m hanging tough!

Hit the boom box mamma – boom bap boom boom boom bap

Tying up my shoes or I’ll scream the house down

Zipping up my coat or watch my smile turn to a frown

Closing the front gate til my hand gets jammed innit

Wiping my own butt because yeah, ME DO IT!

Hit the  boom box mamma – boom bap boom boom boom bap

Brushing my own teeth, coz who cares if they drop out?

Fastening every fastener, that my badself finds about

Yeah don’t try to mess, or a slap will come your way

Including when we cross the road, or you will pay!

Hit the  boom box mamma – boom bap boom boom boom bap

Coz I don’t care if it’s messy, dangerous or rad

Me do it myself because I am bad!

Yeah….Take it to the bridge home mummy and daddy…uh, uh, yeah….

  1. Lol, this is brilliant! Love it – a fab insight into the mind of a toddler and done in such a wonderful way. Am sure that my 18th month old would be joining in with this rap if she could! 🙂

  2. Brilliant – my toddler has to do EVERYTHING himself, except for getting dressed actually. It can be a bit of a nightmare but I desperately try to give him that independence where I can – i saves all manner of tantrums! Thanks so much for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday
