Ferris Bueller's Day Off

I am a HUGE fan of movies from the 80's. I have seen them over and over and over again. Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, She's Having a Baby, Say Something, Mystic Pizza... L-O-V-E them.

However, if today was my last living day on earth and I had a choice to watch one of my favorites before my time was up, I'd hands down choose Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Now instead of rambling on and on about why I love that movie so much, let me tell you what made me think of this today. I wasn't just randomly reflecting on my favorite 80's movies. After all, what busy parent has time for that, right?

It was this thing that I kept hearing over and over again from the 1st moment I woke up this morning...

"Mom"

"Mom"

"Mom"

And as my 3 guys persistently called my name, I resisted my usual urged of telling them that I changed my name to "Dad." They never seem to use that name in this house! Instead I had an instant imagine in my head of this man:



And I all I could hear was the morphed voice of my children turned into Ben Stein's voice...

"Mom"

"Mom"

"Mom"

It just made me laugh, you know?

Ferris is my personal favorite too. I also remember the chorus of "Mom, Mom, Mom." I had to tell them one day..."I am NOT your Mom". They stared at me incredulously.
