Laughing at Myself!

Ok, so this is totally off topic… but hey, it’s my blog so I guess I can write what I want, right?

Anyway, I was at the Dentist today with my kiddos and just found it so amusing that every time the dentist would tell one of my kiddos to open up wide… well, guess who’s mouth would start opening? Not just my kiddos, but mine! It’s like by my mouth opening I somehow thought I was helping! I kept catching myself doing it and it just made me laugh! We moms are too funny!

And another little tidbit that has absolutely nothing to do with saving money! After the dentist I stopped at the bank and went through the drive through to deposit a check. When I received my receipt back I accidentally drove off with the canister thingy (what is it called?). Yes, embarrassing… BUT it sure did make my kids laugh! Of course the person in the car behind me was not too happy and I was a little red in the cheeks when I had to stop my car in the middle of the parking lot and run back to give it to her!

Oh how I love life and the funny little things we all do!

    Don’t we (Moms) do the same thing when we are feeding our kids with a spoon? We open our mouths at the same time?!

  3. Joybellz

    HAHA!! I thought I was the only one who did that!! My husband used to make fun of me when I first started feeding our daughter solid foods…I would sit there with my mouth open waiting on her to put the food in her mouth! I can’t watch him shave either…I try to “help” him do that too!! FUNNY!!

  4. Lisa

    lol – I totally drove away with the canister thing – got all the way across the street and on base before I realized – then I am sure the gate guards thought it was all shady when I drove back off and on again…

    My husband used to make fun of me because when my kids were small and I’d be feeding them baby food, my mouth would open and close along with theirs!

    I also used to be a drive thru bank teller. That happens more often than you’d think! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Michelle

    I cannot feed my son without opening my mouth also! I wonder why we do that. It is like here let me help, roar. lol

    I always get comments for opening my mouth when putting on my mascara.

  9. Sarah

    Thanks for the laugh. My husband and I always laugh about opening our mouths when feeding the kids. It seems like a universal phenomenon.

    I love it. Any mom can definitely relate to those scenarios!

    I always open my mouth when I am feeding my daughter and when I catch myself I try to stop but just can’t! It’s like trying to sneeze with your eyes open – it’s just not possible! I’m glad I’m not the only one out there.

    On a side note, I was not one who won the movie tickets from World Market. I am soo dissappointed! I rushed right out and put in the code the same day. Oh well ๐Ÿ™

    he he yea, I worked as a bank teller for a few years we called it a tube, people drove of with it fairley often one lady did not bring it back untill the next day.
    It happens, the best part is that I actually did it my self once. Felt pretty dorky after beeing on the other side of the window for so long.

  17. Melissa

    GLAD I’m not the only one who has done that!! I was sitting here reading your post laughing out loud!!thanks for the afternoon giggle!

    I worked as a Teller as well for awhile, and people would do that quite often. Once we even called up the person who took off with it and asked if they could bring it back. At least you caught it before getting a phone call. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The worst random DUMB thing I ever did is actually terrible but I SWEAR it was an accident! I was in grad school and exhausted during midterms, just zombified. Toward the end I was walking home from an exam and drinking a can of Coke (caffeine) when I just decided I didn’t want to finish it. So as I was walking, I opened a nearby trashcan, tossed it, kept going… Then STOPPED and turned… I had thrown a 1/2 full Coke into a MAILBOX!

    Believe it or not I remember reading somewhere that they did studies on why women open their mouths when concentrating on facial activities such as putting on makeup or feeding…and they found it improved their vision!


  21. joligirl123

    haha! I totally stalk your blog all day long… what a nice unexpected treat to read your funny stories!!

  22. Jill

    When my Mom would take me to the dotor she would do somthing similar. The doctor would get out his stethoscope and tell me to “take a deep breath” and my Mom would be over in the corner breathing deep every time!

    I open my mouth when I’m putting on mascara and I close my eyes when I blow dry my hair (even the back of my head). Too funny! Thanks for sharing. I just LOVE love love your blog!

    I used to work as a teller too and we didnt have those nice little tubes, we had the platic boxes that you used for pencil cases in elementary school, and they would fall out of the holder all the time and people would run over them and smash them to smitherines lol. we ran out once and couldnt use the drive thru lol

  25. Baker Tribe

    I read yours and then went out and did this: Milkbone dog biscuits are BOGO…I had 3 BOGO coupons…I grabbed only 3 boxes …ugh!! I ran back and explained..and they were nice enough to give me my 3 boxes I didn’t take the first time!!

    I work at a bank and trust me, you are NOT the first person to run off with the tube! ๐Ÿ™‚ We just appreciate it being brought back. lol

  27. Tammy

    That’s what makes the world so interesting!
    Love the dentist story…….

  28. Your Step-Dad. :-)

    Ha! I could start a whole ‘nother blog about that kind of stuff!

  29. Tiffany

    LOL! Well one day I was sitting in the bank drive thru talking to my husband next to me and I forgot to hit the send button. We sat there for about 10 minutes before I realized it. I was so embarrassed because I was getting inpatient waiting on the teller.

  30. Lisa

    Just wait until your kids get older and play sports. You’ll find yourself kicking at the soccer ball,etc. But never fear, every other mom there is doing the same!

  31. Sandra

    HAHAHA! My son in law almost did that last month!

    Yes I did that too with my daughter too! It’s normal I guess. lol

  32. trash2cash4u

    I am not alone when I say keep up the funny blogs! It will ease the headaches from scrutinizing our own coupons before the Target cashiers can LOL. =) I actually laughed out loud!!! And we have gotten an education and now know what a “tube” is. My bank teller will be so proud of me.

    On the Bank tube subject. I dropped it one time & it rolled under the car. Well… I was scared to drive uo since I didnt know if it was under the tire. I opened the door & squeezed out since I try to get as close to the tube system as I can. Well I had to bend over (trying to be lady like) in my Dress. Finally spotted the tube & then pulled up to reach it & had to walk back to send my tube thru the system.. I was so mortified because It appeared that Everyone in my town hit the bank that afternoon & cars were backed up for days. HEY look at the bright side at least everyone in the lines had some live entertainment at my expense. LOL!!!!

    Yap.just wait till your kids get older…When I was teaching how to drive to my teenage daughter, I kept hitting the break I didn’t have on the passenger side.

  35. LaraS

    I did that one time years ago. The lady at the bank knew my family and called my mother to ask her to ask me to bring the canister back.

  36. Bethany

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve done things like that. The other day, I was at Dollar Tree & paid for my groceries and then started to walk away without them! I had my 2 year old with me so I’m sure I got distracted … still kind of embarrassing. :-\

  37. Janie

    Lovin’ your site from Co. My husband once drove off with the hose and trigger after pumping
    gas! He never removed it from the tank! We wound up paying for that one (that wasn’t so

    I work at a bank and it probably happens about once a month that someone drives off with it. At least you didn’t go too far with it! We had customer keep it for days because they were too embarrassed to bring it back.
