Parenting Haikus, Pump and Dump Style
Meet Shayna Ferm and Tracey Tee, the ladies behind The Bump Pump and Dump Validation Tour. These Denver-based moms are here to remind you that even on your worst parenting day, you’re doing a great job. And whether it’s via song at their parentally-incorrect live comedy shows or via blog post on The Bump, they’re guaranteed to make you laugh. If you’re in New York, catch them at Gotham Comedy Club on September 30th. There will be funny songs, lots of prizes, and oh yeah, wine!
At our 3rd annual Mother’s Day Eve Comedy Show and Party in Denver, we invited six of our fair city’s most talented female comedians - who are also moms - to join us on stage and to quickly write a haiku which embodies their thoughts on parenting. As you can imagine, the results were as varied as the personalities on stage, and we thought it would be fun to share them with you here. Plus, we wrote our own to add to the mix.
5-7-5! It’s awfully therapeutic! Write down your own haiku and add it in the comments. Consider it your micro-therapy for the day.
