Viral Video: Mom of Boys Katie Crank Sings

If life with boys had a soundtrack, what would it be? One mom thinks the sweet, mournful tones of bluegrass singer Alison Kraus sum it all up. Mom Katie Crank covered Kraus's "When You Say Nothing at All" (you might remember the Ronan Keating version from Notting Hill) with lyrics tailored to her chaotic but awesome house full of four sons, as said sons pummel each other and jump off the coffee table in the background. Our favorite part? The wry running commentary on the signs she calmly holds up as the boys go Lord of the Flies in the background.

Mom of two Sasha Emmons is a writer and editor. Follow her on Twitter and Google+.
