Deja Vu




Today, I'm doing the Deja Vu Blog Fest hosted by D L Hammons.  Participants just have to choose a blog from the archives and repost it.  Easy!

My selection is from December 31, 2010, my first year of blogging, and when I had very few followers.  There were no comments on this original post.  It's called "Head Adjustment."  (Let's see if I get a few more comments this time around!)

"Mama, your head is on backwards," my son said as he arranged my long hair over my face. (No comments on that comment, please.)

"Really?"

"Yeah. Your face is on the back of your head, and your ears are on the wrong way."

"What should I do about this?" I asked.

"Shake your head like a dog."

I shook my head like a dog. 

"No, shake it three times like a dog."

My head was starting to hurt after that. "How's that?" I asked.

"Your head is still on backwards. Better try shaking it five times."

"How's that?" I asked after feeling like my neck had major whiplash.

"Um, now you look like an angry Mama."

Perfect.


(In case you want to know, my son, AKA Bubba, was six years old.)  Hope you enjoyed this little blast from the past!

  1. Blast from the past, indeed.

  2. Why on Earth did he think your head was on backwards?

    1. Because my hair was covering my face and not the back of my head. This was from the mind of a six-year-old!

    1. The nurse actually called him that when he was born. He was a big, rolly-polly baby. He looked just like a Bubba!

  6. I'm guessing Bubba had a laugh while you were trying to get your head on straight. :)

  7. I have some early posts that never got comments. Maybe I'll re-post some of them during 2015. You seem to have your head on straight now.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. It's an illusion. My head is most definitely not on straight!

      I'd love to read your old posts. You should post them.

    1. It's one I think very few, if any, people read when it was first posted.

  9. LOL, this is such a fun blast from the past! I think anyone would look angry after that much shaking... XD

  12. haha I absolutely loved this. So sweet and funny!

  13. You should have told him it was a mom thing and that you have eyes in the back of your head :)

  14. Okay, technically the Deja Vu 2014 was supposed to be for post you made this year (because this is an annual event)...but this one was so good I'll let it slide. :) Thank you for re-sharing it today!

    1. I guess I didn't read the fine print. I'll try to remember for next year. But you really should have one to dig anything out of the archives. It's kind of fun to read something from four years ago! Thanks for hosting the blog hop!

  15. Haha, can't blame the angry face, I tried to shake my head after reading your post to imagine how that must have been like and it was not easy.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Too funny. If the angry mama face had shown up sooner, you might have avoided that whiplash. ;)

    Thanks for a very enjoyable blast from your past!

    Happy Deja Vu!

  17. I haven't missed many of your Bubba posts, but I did miss this one. As usual, it made me laugh. Love that Bubba.

    1. My son used to rearrange my hair all the time!

  19. That would make a daddy as mad as it would make a mama.

  20. Still trying to figure out how he thought your head was on backwards... Cute post! I can just see the Angry Mama look. :)
    Happy Deja Vu!

    1. Probably because my hair was on the wrong side of my head. You know how six-year-olds think.

  25. LOL! If he'd seen the Addams Family, then he would've thought you were Cousin It. :)

    Happy Holidays!

    1. Yes. Conversations with kids can be very interesting!

  27. We have so, so many old posts that never got a single comment. Glad to hear Bubba was still wildly creative even at 6. Most people would see a chiropractor, but head banging seems like a viable option too!

    1. Bubba has been wildly creative for as long as he's been on the planet!

  30. I loved my boys when they were that age, we never knew what was going to come out of the mouths next LOL! Not that I don't love them now of course, and tbh, they still surprise me - or maybe shock would be a better word :) x
