About a month ago I shared that Laina was begging for Littlest Pet Shop toys and they cost about $30 per figurine on Ebay. Because they’re “rare.”
I made a video sort of poking fun at her desperate pleas for the expensive toys and my target audience for that video was YOU GUYS. Other moms. But the LPS brigade caught wind of the video and I am currently sitting at 900+ comments and 60,000+ views.
LPS lovers across America are commenting, viewing, sharing, and SUBSCRIBING. I did film a follow up video that addresses their concerns, but have not uploaded it yet. In the mean time, I have this new audience of eight year olds that I had not anticipated.
So, I thought this would be the perfect time to post a rap one of my daycare kids made up. Something they could maybe relate to.
I had heard her singing it and then asked her to do it again for the camera. I was so impressed with her rap (1st grade!) that I shared it with the other parents and added a Songify track to make it sound really legit. I uploaded the rap to YouTube and waited for my new LPS following to LOVE it:
But instead they were all, “Baby K!”
And I had no idea what they were talking about.
Someone said, “NO THATS BABY KAYLEE”
I looked up Baby Kaylee:
And found out I plagiarized her.
I thought my daycare kid was the next American Idol! The next Voice! The next Nicki Minaj!
Instead she’s going to get me sued for copyright infringement.
I’ve been duped by a child. Again.
And subsequently ratted out by children. Again.
