I know you guys enjoy hearing about all the weird stuff my mother does, so I thought you might like this!

A few weeks ago, my mom asked me to help her make a video on how to make puppy weaning food. She said it would be like a cooking show, so I suggested that she do her Julia Child impression. She agreed, because of course she did. Unfortunately she decided she wanted to film rather than be on camera*, so what you see is me desperately trying not to laugh while my mom narrates in a voice that's less Julia Child and more Hyacinth Bucket crossed with a muppet. At one point she inexplicably starts singing the theme to Mr. Roger's Neighborhood. It's great.



*I said, "You're going to hold the phone sideways like I showed you, right?" and she rolled her eyes and said, "Of course I am!" AND YET.

This is the perfect description of the voice your mom is doing!
Also, thank you for posting this.

Thanks, guys! I'm glad you all enjoyed it. And you now know how to make a puppy weaning slurry, so congrats! I'm sure that knowledge will come in useful some day.

Yes! I've had it for ages, and it's so worn out now that it's been relegated to the "work clothes" pile, but it's so comfy that I can't bear to throw it out.

This video is awesome AND the TARDIS shirt is awesome! I was thinking to myself that she sounded like the Swedish Chef and then I cracked up when she said that XD

I'm not sure what the puppy food actually is, but for some weird reason it looks so good! Maybe it's the fact it's in a pie plate.

I love it. I would watch cooking shows if they were all like this. Esp with the spontaneous singing.

It's puppy formula (like baby formula, but for dogs) mixed with rice cereal (for human babies) and a little bit of canned puppy food stirred in. I don't eat breakfast until after I get home from work, and honestly, there were some mornings that the rice cereal looked pretty tempting. If it had been vegan, I probably would have tried some. I think it's probably like farina.
