What is that woman doing?

To the casual observer, some of my typical Kelly activities may seem a little strange. Here are a few of my stellar moments this week:

  • "Mommy, should I click my heels now?" Jillian and I are acting out all the parts from The Wizard of Oz these days. She's going to be Dorothy for Halloween. For our little daily performance, I get to be the munchkins, Glinda the good witch, the Wicked Witch of the West, Auntie Em, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion (when my 3 boys are not in the mood to act), the Wizard and the flying monkeys. She says to me throughout our performance, "Mommy, get the voice right!" She loves it when I say, "I'll get you my pretty!!" Hey, I'm too good at cackling. LOL. I think my husband may have some good teasing material here.

  • I can just hear my neighbor now: "Why is Kelly walking around the house over and over and over again?" I figured out that I can burn some decent calories if I do a couple of laps around my house each day when I'm outside playing with the kids. I have to supervise them anyway so I might as well get some exercise in.

  • All right, I'm ready for you guys to sing along with me and Jillian. See what we were doing today up and down the hallway. Just call us the Cleopatra gals :)

Jillien said...

AWESOME !!!!! I know the song but i've never seen the video this is brilliant. You are such a fun mom :)

Jenners said...

I would love to see you acting out all these parts. Perhaps a vlog is in order?????

And heck to what the neighbors think .. walk your little butt off! Or look down like you're looking for something.

Joanne said...

I like the idea of walking around the house. Hey, any walking we can squeeze into our day is good for us!

Diane said...

You sound like the funnest mom ever to me!!! :O)

septembermom said...

Jenners, I'm considering a vlog for this actually. I just have to convince paranoid techy husband that my little video wouldn't be a big deal. I'll keep you posted :)

Susan Fobes said...

I always loved this video more than I did the actual song. LOL! How did you do your Egyptian walk, hmm?

T Rex Mom said...

Now you can just do your "Walk Like and Egyptian" walk around the house and then see what the neighbors think.

Becca said...

AWE! I bet she is going to make one super cute Dorothy! How fun! It is super smart for you to walk around the house when outside with the kiddos. Way to be creative! HA! Hope you are all doing well!

Randi said...

I've never seen that video! Love the song and love the thought of you walking around like an Egyptian. :) Your kids are going to have great memories when they grow up.

I was just writing about Glinda the Good Witch! One of my favorite quotes from that movie is "You always had the power."

Second favorite "...and your little dog too!"

I want to come play at your house!

Valerie said...

You're a woman of many parts, Kelly. Love the video, it's a real toe tapping movie.

Ken Devine said...

Get in there Kelly! I enjoyed singing along with you.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

You did make me laugh which is not such a bad thing. Thank you.

Yvonne.

Vicky said...

You took me back to my college dorm days with that song :) Oh gosh, how fun. Are you the coolest mom ever or what? My kids pretend to be the announcer of their hockey games and thank goodness they don't make me memorize all the names of the player, especially the Slovakian ones :)

Angela said...

Your kids are blessed to have a mommy like you!! You really made me smile today, and I definitely needed that. :)

Creativity!! said...

woww...I was smiling while reading ur post. it was also a kind of bed time story. thanks a lot for sharing this. I really Like Julian's Post :) :)

Michelle said...

Too funny! And really... who cares what other people think of you. Your kids love spending time with you, and that's all that matters! I think it's great :)

Robyn Campbell said...

Kelly, I had you pictured in my head while watching the Egyptian dance. What a hoot. :)My imitation was AWFUL. Do that as you exercise around the house. The neighbors conversation might go something like, "Louise, would you look at Kelly over there. I think she FINALLY lost it."

"Lost what Frank?"

"It, lost it, Louise." hehe

You are a SUPER FANTASTIC mom, Kelly. :)

Life with Kaishon said...

Teresha@Marlie and Me said...

are you walking like an Egyptian around the house too? Can't wait to see Halloween pics of little Dorothy!

The Write Girl said...

This is so much fun...your little one certainly has you working overtime with the Wizard of Oz characters. Very cute.

Dan said...

One of my favorite videos by the Bangles. (But I still like the original one better.)

Give it all you've got.

Betty Manousos @ CUT AND DRY said...

You made me laugh out loud.
So thank you for that.

Big hugs!
