Pay You More: Behind the Video

Babysitters … we ALL need them, BUT we ALL seem to have the same favorite and ALL need her at the same time … who’s been here before?!

Our new project, “Pay Your More,” was written for all of those precious moms out there that just need a break but their “go-to” babysitter is not available.

Going into this second project with The Texting Yoga Pants, I really wanted it to be funnier than the last. I laughed out loud, a lot, thinking about all of the material we could write and sing about! I have to give credit where credit is due though and tell you that ultimately the idea of “bribing a babysitter” was my husband’s idea. I knew I wanted to write to Sam Hunt’s song “Take your Time,” (I do love a good talking song) after a conversation I had with The Pants.

In true scattered Lauren fashion, I finished the song at the last minute (with the help of my sweetie, Spencer, and Tate Cunningham), booked our shoot at the last minute (I am sure you can guess how much fun it is coordinating with 5 moms’ schedules) and Bill Filipiak, my INCREDIBLE production EVERYTHING man, and I got the treatment done and shot sheet finalized … also, just in the nick of time.

BUT…everything went off without a hitch and it was filmed in about 11 hours. Between the five of us we were working around two kids’ school Christmas parties, a move, family in town, naps, etc. (Moms Get. It. Done.)

I am in love with this entire process! I think the other gals love it too … but you will have to ask them:)
