The Ed Sheeran Parody All Moms Will Love

The Ed Sheeran Parody All Moms Will Love

As you'll already be well aware, parenting is not always (or ever) a glamorous job. Which is why a parody of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’, retitled ‘Smell of You’ has swept the internet; nearing 100,000 views at the time of writing.

Mom of two Sophie McCartney only shared her version of Sheeran’s hit “Shape Of You” to Facebook last week; but it quickly went viral. If you haven’t spotted it yet, the video is more than worth a look; with all too real lyrics which any parent will instantly relate to.


McCartney, a second cousin of the legendary Beatle Sir Paul McCartney, is apparently shocked by the video's success: "So many mums getting in touch to say that it’s cheered them up, made them feel not alone and that actually, it’s quite normal to not have perfect kids or to be a perfect parent ― so amazing." She began her parenting blog TiredNTested.com earlier this year, and decided to make the music video after chatting with a friend about the harsh realities of life as a parent. Hopefully we'll hear more from her in the future ... a bit of dinner-time trouble themed Adele perhaps?!

While we're discussing it, you might enjoy Emer Liston's wonderful piece about toilet training: Poop Smearing | The Darkest Hour Is Often Before Dawn, or the classic '10 Thoughts All Parents With Toddlers Have'. What are the songs that you get stuck in your head? Any you have adapted to Mom life?!
