Weekly Wanna-Be

Regina (mother-in-law)

This was a hard one. I do a really good impersonation of her when I'm just being silly but for this I wanted to TRULY portray her without any silly nonsense or funny sayings or hand gestures that I like to add just for fun. I did this video about 15 times, no joke. Usually my wanna-be's take me one MAYBE two takes at most so I got a little frustrated. I don't know if this one is comparable to the humor level in the ones before it, but it's true and accurate and that's all that matters to me. I'm just glad it's done...man, this one kicked my butt.

Okay now let me preface. I'm being Regina when she sees pictures of Austin in cammies and dress blues for the first time ever. She flipped out completely, she was like all obsessed and proud of her "baby" as she kept saying. It was HIL-arious. After seeing this, I've since added SO much to the whole "performance" to make it absolutely ridiculous so me and Austin can have a good laugh whenever we please. I thought for the sake of this session, I'd also entertain you with my "over-done" video of her. SO, the second video is of that.

I know that making my MIL my wanna-be is risky but I feel like since I've already done BOTH my parents, that counts as a waiver for doing my mother-in-law. Right? I mean...she HAS to forgive me. My parents did. I love your over the top reactions Regina. If you didn't do them, you wouldn't be you!

And...my majorly exaggerrated Regina.

This video only took me ONE time. Awww-YEA.

UGH. Nevermind. Blogger is being stupid. I'll try it in a new post, enjoy this for now.

Austin said...

My mom acts that way. However, she is more dramatic and over the top than Jessica portrays her. Life with my mom is never boring. That's when she's excited. It's a complete 180 when she's mad or upset. I love you mom.

Cholla: The very first thing we do is find out who we're talking about. I mean, we don't even know where to find him.
Elmo: How are we gonna find him?
Cholla: Well it appears to me that there can't be too many guys driving around this valley with an ape.

Marnie said...

You are so brave! I would love to see my MIL get that excited about anything that we do...

Carolina said...

It reminds me of the mama on the Nutty Professor..."Hercules. Hercules. Hercules" but in this case it was "Austin my baby" LOL!!!!

You got something going with these imitations!

Laura said...

I've never know a Regina but I really think that is the perfect chipper and cute personality for one. Has she seen it yet? Are you officially off her christmas list?

Regina said...

OH......Jessica

Love you much,

Regina
