Weekly Wrap-Up (1.25.13)

Bad Lip Reading
This video showcases conversations - dubbed over with alternate words - between NFL players, coaches, and referees. The website calls the video "the best thing ever", and while I wouldn't go that far, I will admit that it's hilarious and that I laughed out loud more than once. Enjoy!

I've Met My Academic Match
Erin: What did you play during recess today?
Will: We didn't have recess today.
Erin: Why not?
Will: It was too cold outside, so we stayed inside and watched The Magic School Bus in Space.
Erin: You didn't go outside?! It was only in the 40s! And the sun was out!
Will: I don't know what to tell you, Mom. Mrs. Pratt said it was too cold.
Erin: (quietly, but apparently not quietly enough, under her breath) Well, tell Mrs. Pratt that when you lived in Michigan you went outside for recess when it was 20 degrees and snowing.
Will: Well, Mom, maybe...maybe Mrs. Pratt is smarter than you.

Dance Like No One is Watching
The folks watching this woman dance her heart out - near a baggage claim carousel at LAX - clearly think she's an odd duck (I can't believe that no one looks at her for a full 45 seconds, and even then, they just glance awkwardly in her direction), but I think she's kind of awesome. She reminds me of Hallie: uninhibited, carefree, and alive. I wish I was a little more like her.

Seriously, what has potty training come to?! This product really exists by the way, and for low price of $40 it can be yours. (iPads are sold separately, but the iPotty does come with a clear, pee-proof cover for your iPad and a splash guard for boys.)

Red Cross: Flu-Free
This week on the Red Cross blog I'm sharing a few tips to help kids help themselves stay healthy during this nasty cold and flu season.

MomsEveryday: Don't Give Up
In case you missed it the first time around, MomsEveryday ran Don't Give Up on their website this week. I just reread the post and was pleased I took the time to do so; I needed a little reminder that accomplishing my New Year's Resolutions - and my goals in general - is not an all-or-nothing endeavor, and that it's alright to bend and sway and fall down and get back up in my pursuit.
