FMS: Lucy’s Favorite Commercial

Seriously – this is the funniest stuff – the truth.

You all know I’m a big fan of my phone right? Well.. in case you didn’t know – I am the very proud owner of an iPhone 4. I love it. I take pictures with it, I take videos with it. I sometimes make calls with it too. It keeps me connected. I am by far an iPhone fan. I always will be.

Lucy is already trying to be a rebel.

There is a commercial out – I encourage you to watch this:

This is a commercial for the Sprint Evo 4G. As you saw… its a smart phone that can “beat the iPhone”.

First off.. no it can’t.

Secondly? It’s my daughter’s favorite commercial. It comes on – and she stops, whatever it is that she’s doing, and watches it. I don’t know if its the catchy tune, or the guy’s sweet velvet voice, or even the little green ‘android’ robot guy. Irregardless – Lucy loves it. She’s such a rebel.

Don’t believe me? Here’s my first video evidence. Notice her after the commercial ends:

Yep. She goes right back to playing with her barnyard jamboree.

Here’s another. She’s so captivated she forgets to close her mouth.

And if you STILL don’t believe me…

Boom. Truth.

My daughter loves my dearest iPhone’s arch enemy.

FMS: Wiggly Footed Lucy

Ok.. Its not a REAL Funny Mom Story- but it is funny. Or Cute. Whatever.

Lucy has this thing with her feet. She can’t… leave them still.

If she’s sitting in a lap – she wiggles her feet.

If she’s in her high chair – she wiggles her feet.

If she’s falling asleep – she wiggles her feet.

Just like her daddy. He twitches his feet before bed… EVERY NIGHT. Trust me I know. It used to keep me awake.

Lucy does the same thing. She gets it honest.

Watch her right foot go!

I have decided… to try and be funny on my blog.

I normally make people laugh throughout my daily life, but I’ve never actually tried to make people laugh. Ok, maybe once. And when I tell laffy taffy jokes.

There is a blog that I follow religiously. His name is Tyler Stanton. He is hilarious. I wish he blogged everyday. I literally laugh until I cry. And I thought… I should give it a shot. I should try and make people laugh. Why?

Well… because laughing is fun. Its much more fun than being serious all the time. It’s a lot more fun than crying. Most of the time anyway.
I don’t know exactly what I’ll be doing to try and make you all laugh more… but I’m going to attempt it.

Mr. Stanton makes lists. I mean.. SUPER funny lists. When I read them I can’t breathe. And his tweets on twitter are also really funny.

His blog, by the way is

Laughing is good for your soul – I’m convinced. So, I’m going to try and help you all have fun(nier) days when you read my blog.

So to get us going.. here are a couple of super cute videos of my Lucy.


Ahh… hard to follow those.

Here is my funny story of the day…

I teach teenagers. You may know this already. You may not. I teach Graphic Design and Art. I used to teach Biology. Over my very few short years of teaching… I’ve learned one thing. Teenagers are dumb. They say some of the dumbest things. They don’t have filters. A filter is a thing that most adults have. It’s the thing that goes on in your head that says, “wait a second.. lets think this through before we let those words go spewing out of our mouth!” It makes us pause before we say things like, “Oh my.. You’re baby is ugly,” or “Wow, you’re fat.”

Teenagers lack this. Its not present at all. Well, in most of them anyway.

So my teenagers have said things like:

“You know, a third world country.. like China.”

“My eyebrows feel thick.”

“Penguins are racist. They don’t like me.”

I’ve taught juniors in high school that called the hands on a clock “wands”. I’ve taught kids who thought a hibiscus was the “saints thingy” (fleur di lis). I’ve had kids who couldn’t read a clock. Wait… all of those were one student. Oops.

Poor teenagers. Its really amazing how much they learn between 11th grade and 12th grade.

I’m really surprised that some of mine can walk and breathe at the same time. Not kidding. Sometimes its not even funny.

I taught a football player once who (was the epitome of a dumb jock) and he broke his foot… walking. Literally.. it just sprained without any help from gravity or anything. That takes talent.

Sorry.. I’m looking back and I’m thinking.. this isn’t funny at all. I’ll work on it. I’ll have to wait until I have something really funny happen in class. Then I’ll tell you all about it. I’m SO looking forward to Christmas break. Gracious.. week come on!
