Earlier this week my status on facebook read: L just called. "I'm 69. I know mom, shockerprising!" That is his new word this month...and I LOOOOOOVE it!

Two days later I was schooled by my boys, telling me it isn't "shockerprising" it is "shockAprising!"

I totally feel like one of those old people who is trying to be hip, who say things wrong. Like when my mom said "off the hanger," instead of "off the hook."

Regardless, shockaprising has been the best thing since sliced bread around here. (HELLO! OLDNESS! Who says that saying anymore???)

Instead of L silently checking his sugar, and picking out his own appropriate snack before I can confer...he will now announce every low as he is testing, with "Shockaprising!"

It is such a relief for me to be able to step in to see HOW low he is, and in turn help him pick the best possible snack for the situation.

The only ramification of all of this, is that "shockaprising" stays in my head like a catchy song, ALL. DAY. LONG.

It is my first reaction to my head anyway.

I'm not sure why it is, but it is just fun to say. You have to say it with gusto when you do. your shocked...almost like you are fake shocked. (Gusto...what am I, 80?)

Luckily I have a son that is willing to play along with his mom. He agreed to a reenactment. Please find it below...

Funniest part: When I asked him to reenact for me, he really WAS low!



  1. Lol what a cutie!

    (Its lexi, locked out of my acct)

  2. Awww, love the combed hair and the twinkle in his eyes.

  3. That's funny! At least you have kids to keep you reasonably up-to-date on lingo; I'm an old person who has to hear it on TV, and by the time its there, its really out-of-date!

  4. Who stole your baby and left you that kid!!!??! He's changed so much in the last year!
    That was funny. :)

  5. SHOCK-aprising! HILARIOUS! that video is off the hanger! :D

  6. Off the hangar!!! LOL! My mom would totally say something like that...and think she was being hip :)

    Loved hearing L's super sweet voice. I will now be reciting shockaprising! in my head all day!!

  7. He is SO cute!!! I'm glad he agreed to a reenactment for us. I loved watching the video! :)

  8. Your family is precious! And you? Are very cool-not old!! : )

  9. I think we all need to add shockaprising to our vocab!
