RTT: Oh just random stuff

I spent a half an hour trying to think in rhyme because that's how I imagine Jen from Sprite's Keeper thinks. Its very frustrating for a novice like myself.

Gabriel: "Is home where you cuddle?"


You know that song by Jack Johnson on the Curious George soundtrack, Jungle Gym? Gabriel was singing along with it but kept singing 'chocolate chip' in place of jungle gym. It was super cute.

Me: Dad, I tried calling you ten times today. I even called your cell phone - why don't you answer?

Dad: I didn't know you called (muffling in the background) oh, it looks like your mom put my cell on vibrate. How do you turn on the ringer on this thing?

Me: Press and hold the pound button.

Dad: Is that the one that looks like a tic tac toe board?

Me: Yes.

Dad: I don't think that worked. Now it says, "Normal Profile On"

Me: Yes, it worked. That's what its supposed to say.

Dad: Ok, well hang up and call me on my cell phone.

(I hang up, dial his cell phone, he hangs up on me - I call his home phone back)

Dad: Hey! I told you to call my cell phone!

Me: I did but you hung up on me.

Dad: No, I didn't. I just closed my phone.

Me: That hangs it up, dad.

Dad: Oh, well, I guess its working now.

Me: It was working all along.


Good thing my dad doesn't read my blog.


My dad only reads my blog if my mom makes him - so mom, don't tell dad to read this post. Not that he could find my blog since you are out of town. But still.....


I got my self deprecating sense of humor from my dad. He really is a good sport.


Gabriel upon leaving Seaworld: Mom, I'm tired. When we get home can we watch shows and cuddle?

(the answer is always 'yes' even if my house is a mess and even though dinner won't cook itself - that is my favorite thing to do! from what i understand from more experienced moms, is that this cuddling thing comes to an end so i want to get as much in as possible)

Distracting them with TV is usually the only time I can sneak in a cuddle around here too.

Your dad sounds hilarious. In a good way. My dad and I could have had that exact conversation.

I think your sons must be among the most adorable little boys on the planet (a club which also includes my own two!), but I quite think your Dad is adorable, too! The cell phone talk...hilarious! It reminds me of my father-in-law. And, come to think of it, my mother-in-law, too!

That's just too funny about your dad.

Oh, the rhyming thing can give ya such a headache! When I get caught on a word, it drives me nuts. Like appendix when I was making the last one. Oy!
Your dad gave me the biggest laugh of my day on the cell phone convo! Thanks!

i just stupidly signed up for twitter, like i need another time waster. anyway, i looked up your name and there was one rebecca grigg with screen name: becky_boo_loopy. figured that must be your tween twin or something. i had to share because i thought it was funny!

The Stiletto Mom said...

The cuddling thing does end...enjoy it now! Also, I love your Dad! He sounds adorable. :)

Cindi ~ Moomettesgram said...

You let your parents read your blog! Wow! Most people I know cringe if their family reads it!

Your boys are too cute!

Happy RTT & mine's posted too!

I love a good cuddle!

Mrsbear said...

Oh man, I take the cuddles where and when I can get them.

The cell phone exchange was hilarious. I've had similar experiences with my grandfather and his DIRECTV remote. The damn thing is a mystery to him.
