TV time without distractions

me: Are you ready to watch the movie?

Jack: Yep!

me: Put your phone in the kitchen please.

Jack: I’m not using it.

me: I don’t want us to be distracted. Put it in there.

Jack: Look, it’s on the ottoman.

me: Jack: Put it in the other room please.

Jack: I’m not looking at it!

me: Put it away. Now.

Jack: I put this pillow on it look what’s the big deal.

me: Because it beeps and you jump to answer it. Put. It. Away. Now.

Jack: That’s not fairrrrrr!

me: We are not watching a movie until you put it away. Just put it over behind you on the table sheesh Jack!

Jack: Ughhhh so unfairrrr! (He finally puts it away)

me: Thank you.

We watch the movie. About halfway through there’s this part about a calendar…

me: Oh we should totally look that up to see if it’s real! (I grab my phone)

Jack: (stare of death) Really. How nice that we aren’t being distracted by our phones.

me: Uhhhhh.

Mom’s search terms

Whenever I’m driving or just busy, I usually ask Jack to look stuff up on his phone. I’m always in need of random information at random times. Just like a normal mom. Right?

me: Want to see a movie tonight?

Jack: There’s nothing out.

me: Look it up…

Jack: (flipping through his phone browser) Geez you know these are all mom searches when the last one that comes up is “How to ripen cherry tomatoes”.

me: Sigh…

Iggos on board 

I just gave Jack and his friend a ride to school. They call each other Eggo, OK AutoCorrect get it right, it’s IgG oh.  “IGGO”. Sheesh.

Anyway, we were talking about movies and TV and then actors. Jack and I watched a movie last night with Morgan Freeman in it.

Jack: Morgan Freeman was the guy in Mockingjay that died.

Me: What? That wasn’t Morgan Freeman. Believe me Morgan Freeman doesn’t go into a movie for one minute and then die.

Jack: He was the guy that raised his hand and then got killed. Well, if it wasn’t him it looked just like him.

Me: Yeah it must’ve been someone that  looked like him. I’ve been watching Morgan Freeman since I was little. He was on this show called the electric company. We loved that show!

Friend: What kind of name is that for a show?

Me: We had shows like Sesame Street, Zoom, Villa Allegra, and Mr. Rogers neighborhood ha ha.

Jack: We have suicide squad!

Friend: Yeah we have Deadpool and suicide squad!! Oh, and South Park!

Me: We learned things like how to read and count and how to be nice to people.

Jack: I learned how to make a spoon into a weapon, do you know how to make a spoon into a weapon?!

Me: What are you talking about? Is that true!?

Jack: I’m just kidding…It sounded funny after all your stuff from the 1980s.

Me: That would be more like the 1970s.

Friend: Whatever, that be ooooolllld!
