Sh*t Jack’s Mom Said

That’s me.

Jack is currently in sunny Arizona with his dad, completely missing the destruction (some rain and wind) from Hurricane Henri. Thankfully it is not a lot worse here, but we were getting slightly worried as of yesterday afternoon. Or rather, I was getting worried. Jack was of course flying across the country. Once I saw that so many gas stations had 10 or more cars lined up in them, and many others were completely out of gas, I started to think… wtf.

I went to the store to make sure I had all the necessities (I really just badly needed romaine lettuce of all things), and saw that the bread and water aisles looked like last year’s COVID panic. I didn’t go in the TP aisle so I don’t know how that fared. But I can guess!

Jack went to NY on Friday. I had to work all day and he basically just had to pack and clean his room since he would be gone for a week, and then would be coming back with a day left to get ready for school. Yikes! Senior year! Anyway, I must have been in a weird mood, and said some weird stuff, but I didn’t think there was anything too out of the ordinary happening. I mean, I’m always weird, and he always says weird sh*t too so I was just doin my thang. I guess my thang is weird.

I don’t like the word “thang”, sorry.

I do remember hearing Jack comment a few times that day, after I would exclaim something or sing something or generally mumble to myself the way I usually do when I think I’m alone.

So what was I saying that could make Jack notice? Here are a few snippets.

I hate the word “snippet” too. I’m going to stop using both of those words starting now. My thang and my snippets use has just ended. Said no one ever.

  1. Hey! I found the bag of cheese on my treadmill.
    Jack: Said no one ever. On this planet.
  2. I be snappin’ my gum to the Kanye beat.
    Jack: Mom rockin out to Kanye with her doublemint.
  3. I just skidded on a carrot across the hall.
    Jack: I’m hoping that was Moca’s.
  4. Banana and cocoa powder and peanut butter, tastes like heaven from above.
    Jack: Or as I call it, poop from a butt.
  5. Why is Ohio so sad?
    Jack: It’s Ohio.
  6. Edit: thought of one more… I said “Did ya fill it past the click?” When Jack was pumping gas. He still makes fun of me about that one.

I know there are more, but that’s all I could think of at the moment. Jack has no interest in starting the Sh*t My Mom Says blog so I think we’re good for now hahaha.

The weather in CT right now from Hurricane Henri isn’t too terrible and we’ve been VERY lucky. Prepared for the worst and better to be safe than sorry. Etc Etc!

I hope everyone reading this is also safe and sound!

Belated Mother’s Day wishes!


I was too busy enjoying my day to actually post about enjoying my day! Isn’t that nice when it happens that way? I hope you all had an amazing Mother’s Day and that your children made you feel as special as mine did.

Jack was in rare form, starting Saturday night. He marched around the house not allowing me to lift a finger and whenever I ask for anything. It was hysterical. I got massages and drinks when I needed them and covers folded back for me and he listened to everything I told him to do. It was heavenly.

I ordered cupcakes from Scottcakes in Provincetown Mass. for my Mother’s Day gift. Over the weekend, Jack and I am his friend manage to consume them all. Divine they are! Visit Scottcakes.com or simply go to Cape Cod and visit them on commercial Street in Provincetown ha ha.

These are a few things that Jack said yesterday, and I just had to share them because he still continuing his trend LOL.

The first comment was about the cupcakes. I said oh boy I shouldn’t have be into. Now I feel kind of sick. How do you feel?

Jack: I didn’t get sick eating the cupcakes, I felt amazing! It was a morale booster!

The second comment it was about my blog. I think I need to monetize. I asked Jack if he thought it was a good idea.

Jack: Monetize? Oh I know how to monetize! You use Adsense duhhh. Everyone knows that.

And, lastly, Jack has detention tonight. It is his first attention in middle school. I’m not proud of it, and I don’t think he should be either.

Jack: I’m a pioneer! I’m the first kid in my grade to get detention!

Sigh.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!

The comeback king

Why oh why is this a new phase? When do the phases end, by the way? And why are there no good phases??!!

me: Hey, don’t touch that, it’s not clean.

Jack: You’re not clean.

me: Knock it off Jack.

Jack: Can we watch a movie?

me: Not tonight, it’s too late.

Jack: You’re too late.

me: That doesn’t even make sense.

Jack: You don’t even make sense.

me: Stoppit.

———-

me: What do you want for dinner?

Jack: Food and lots of it.

me: That’s not very specific is it?

Jack: You’re not very specific are you?

me: What did I tell you about doing that?

Jack: To not to.

me: Better follow that advice buddy and be all sunshine and rainbows for me.

Jack: You’re all sun–… Heyyyy! I said I need food over here or at least an appetizer!

me: Sigh.

(Almost had him calling me sunshine and roses. Ha.)
