C’mon Get Happy Playlist Curated By The Punky Mom Family

Back in May we asked The Punky Mom Family what songs made them happy. No one could have guessed the answers. It may be the oddest mix possibly ever in Punky Mom’s history. We are some seriously diverse mamas. Didn’t take long for us to realize though that we needed to make this into a Mixtape for our Spotify Station.

Here is the mix in all it’s Get Happy playlist glory. All 3 hours and 50 minutes of it. Enjoy!

The Punky Mom Family FB Group curated a Get Happy Playlist. It's weird and diverse, just like us. Stream for free on our Spotify station today.
