There are no words...

I really don't know what to say about this video...ok, who are we kidding, there are a few things I would like to say about this video.

Number One: I do NOT think that American Idol is in our future.

Number Two: I don't know what's up with the headband.

Number Three: He must get his theatrical facial expressions from his father. I kid, I kid. We all know I am the most dramatic person out there.

Number Four: I would like to apologize for my ridiculously awful Ludacris impression. Luda if you are out there...you are much better than I.




I just love this little guy to pieces.

Dentist

I went to the dentist yesterday for the first time in two years.

TWO YEARS!??!! That's ludicrous, you might be saying to yourself...it's ok...I said the same thing to myself too.

The last time I had been to the dentist was a week before I had Isaiah, and life, well, it just sort of happened that way.

Anywho, so I knew I needed to go to the dentist so I made an appointment with Renzi's dentist. Just felt like making a change and thought it would be easier for all of us if we just went to the same dentist.

So after the fabulous hygienist cleaned my teeth and tooth pictures, she showed me her findings. I had actually broken TWO of my back teeth and didn't even know it. I also had TWO cavities. I haven't had a cavity since I was six years old! And speaking of that particular cavity from when I was a wee one, they are going to have to take that filling out because it is the old silvery kind. Oh, and I also am having enamel problems with my top front teeth.

Needless to say, I was VERY upset by all of this troubling news. I take pride in the fact that I never have cavities, that I never had braces, and overall, I have pretty teeth!

But....don't think that my story just ends there...you know it's just getting started.

So, as the lovely dentist is checking out my teeth and chatting about the hours long procedure I am going to have to have on my mouth next week he then says to me, "Now that you are in your forties Lee Anne, you have to realize that your teeth are just going to have things like this happen to them."

FORTIES!!!????

Do I look like I am 40? What makes him think I am 40? Oh the thoughts that were screaming in my head. I couldn't react the way I wanted to because this lovely dentist had some dental tools in my mouth at the time, so my rebuttal to his telling me that I was in my 40's sounded something like this..."Garble, garble, I'm EEEERRTTYYY UNNN!!!!!"

Finally, he let me speak and I couldn't get out fast enough that I was not, in fact, in my 40's, but I was a young, spirited 31 year old hot mom. Ok, so maybe I didn't say the hot mom part, but I did tell him my real age.

The dentist looked puzzled for a second and he pulled out my chart. He checks the birth date on my insurance card. And sure enough, my birthdate said, 12/28/1965. Apparently, Delta Dental of Oklahoma thinks I am 45.

After a good laugh about this I started thinking........

He probably thought I was quite the Cougar for marrying a man 12 years my junior.

You go my 45 year old self.

Awkward


So, yesterday evening we got the opportunity to attend the "Literary Voices 2011," dinner and the Special Guest Speaker was none other than Mrs. Laura Bush. We also were invited to a special reception before the dinner where we were able to meet the Former First Lady herself and get a picture with her and the other people at our table for the night.


And you know I screwed that one up. :)


I am not sure if you know this or not, but in the dictionary next to the word AWKWARD is a picture of me. True statment. Look it up. See me in there? That's me.


So knowing my awkwardness, in advance I had prepared a short speech before we walked into the room where Mrs. Bush was. I was going to say something profound like, "Thank you Mrs. Bush for all that you do for promoting literacy. My son and I love the library and I am so honored to be a part of this night."


I practiced this statement in my head over and over again. I was ready. I was going to "wow" her.


So, one of the Secret Service men opened the door and we were ushered into the room. And there she was. She was dressed in a stunning turquoise suit and she just looked perfect. I was about third in line in our group so when it was my turn to shake her hand this is what I said....


"HHHHEEEEYYYYYYYY!!! I'm Lee Anne Stone! Are you tired?"


Wiggity wiggity wiggity what????? Are you tired? Where did that come from????


She, of course, was as gracious and as poised as you would think she would be. She replied, "No, Lee Anne, I am not tired. But thank you for asking."


Renzi then swooped in to help me out and thanked her for her service with helping Afghan women. She really seemed to like that.


I, of course, was mortified.


We took our picture and she waved us all out the door.


Renzi and I got the giggles when we went out the door. Couldn't stop laughing. And we are still laughing about it today.


I think my picture is now listed under a different word in the dictionary after last night. SMOOTH OPERATOR. That's me! :)

Random Funnies from Jackson Stone


My life in general is pretty freaking funny. Things happen to me, people say things to me, and I trip and fall all day long. Oh, and I tend to get myself into horribly awkward situations daily. But the number one thing in my life that is the funniest is my Jackson. He is seriously the funniest person I know. I usually post on my Facebook page when he says or does something funny...and recently I started a Twitter account for him (jacksonstone33). I started the Twitter account for him because there is an app that will take the things you post on Twitter and put in a book for you. BAM. Baby book. Easiest decision ever.

Here are some recent Twitter posts and random funnies from the J man this week....

"Today my name is Ricardo. Today mom you will be Renaldo." And for the rest of the day he called me Renaldo.

"I like Jesus. He's a good dude." This was said while in the car following Sunday School.

"Please stop singing in the car Mom. It's just not your special talent."

"And now for my next trick, I am going to smell my feet."

While walking out of the bathroom at the Thunder game this guy sees that Jackson is wearing a Kevin Durant jersey and he says to Jackson, "Hey Kevin Durant, how many will you score tonight?" And Jackson replied, "I'm a white guy! KD is really tan!" As a mother, I didn't even know how to respond to that.

As we were walking home from the Thunder game tonight we hit the crosswalk button. The crosswalk button recorded voice starts chanting over and over again, "Wait, Wait, Wait, Please Wait." Clearly, Jackson was annoyed at the guy "in the crosswalk button" and he went right up to the pole and started yelling, "We are waiting you silly goose! Can't you see us? Stop yelling at us! It's not nice! We are right here waiting!"

My other most favorite thing my sweet guy is doing is randomly, throughout the day, he will say, "Mom, you know why I am the luckiest kid in the whole wide world??? Because I have you!" Oh be still my heart. Love this boy so stinking much!

I hope that everyone is having a great week. We have had a wonderful week here at the Stone house just working, relaxing and being together. I am super duper pumped because next weekend Uncle Grant, Aunt Brooke, Baby Jake, Uncle Dave, Aunt Ginny and Aunt Ginger are all coming into town for my mother in law's birthday. We are going to have so much fun and I can't wait to get my hands on my precious nephew Jake!

Cheers!
Lee Anne
