I just want to say Raising Hope gives me energy to live. I have an aunt just like Maw Maw. Her Alzheimers is not as bad but still she can't remember most things. I have realized it this last year and I felt totally desperate because she is like a mother to me. This TV series gives me the hope and strength to cope with this situation. I want to thank to whole crew! =)
When my sibling was diagnosed with an ear infection, Mom took him to see the doctor. The doctor gave a prescription of amoxicillin. My Mom wasn't sure what to do so she asked her sister-in-law to help. It took the two of them to hold the kid down to pour the amoxicillin into his ear! It was supposed to be given to him by mouth! True story! The most amazing Mom ever!
As young working parents, we met a teen girl at the pool. We thought she was trustworthy and invited her to become the new babysitter. She brought her own daughter to my house. She also found my credit cards and took her mother shopping at a department store. Pictures were taken at the store. She left her residence before police could find her!
I had 3 kids by the time my oldest were two. A few favorites: My son calls our calico cat a Mexican cat because he thinks calico is a Mexican word. He refuses to eat English muffins because he's American. My daughter asked me yesterday how a baby fits out of a belly button. The baby walks around refusing to go by any other name but Bailey Ballerina.
My dad is DUMB. If it wasn't so fun watching him screw up, it would be sad. We had a door that was sticking on the TOP. He removed it and shaved off an inch from the BOTTOM, He hung it back up, it still stuck so he took it down, shaved more off and so on. The door STILL sticks. Now when our cat wants to come in from outside, he puts his whole head under the door and meows!
My dad's clothes weren't done drying yet, so Einstein put his still damp underwear in the microwave, set it on high, and then walked away. Within seconds, the kitchen filled with acrid black smoke. He boiled a can of beans in a pot of water without opening it because he didn't want to do dishes. It exploded all over. Oh, did I mention that he is a FIREFIGHTER?
The other night my two youngest daughters, ages 12 and 14, were sitting on the couch next to me, bickering. I sat listening just in case I had to send someone to their room. That's when I heard the 12 year old say, "So that's why yo mama stinks!" And the 14 year old replied, "No, yo mama is the one that stinks!" That's when I said, "Wow! I'm sitting right here!" LOL
My ten year old asked me one day, "How do actors act in slow motion? Like on that movie the other night when Hayden Christenson ran and jumped behind the couch while shooting! I tried that, and I just fell!" Only thing I thought was, "Where was I and where was my nanny cam?"
My hubby has 3 children with his ex-wife. Because of their divorce, his kids aren't close to their mom. Soon after our son was born, my hubby's eldest daughter told her mother that we where going to name her godmother. So, when the day came, she showed up looking good. It was awkward when we named his bestie godfather...
