Actually, the ear-covering thing was a joke suggested by the composer, not any concern by the mom.  All three sets of parents (her, the woman in the front with her baby in a sling, and the artists -- their cousin is the man with the baby on stage) were very laid back and cool.

Having kids participate in something like that (there was next to no budget so we couldn't make any kind of accommodations to speak of) could have been a nightmare -- we sang long hours, walked a good couple miles over the course of the weekend etc.  But I think the baby cried (for any real length of time) once, and the kids never stopped being in good moods that I saw.

According to the lyrics, and you can see it in the video, "(CHILDREN TO COVER THEIR EARS)" during the thinking about sex line. So I guess they didn't want their kids singing that either.

I figured the mom was there, but I kep thinking.."DANG@! I'd not want my kids singing that!" I saw one guy wearing his little baby. it looked like a fun thing, though, despite little kids singing anent thinking about sex.
