Children have a sixth-sense when it comes phone calls. They can be perfectly content, but the second they hear a ringtone chime or a parent say “Hello,” it’s all over. Cue: whining, crying, squabbling, and “MOOOOM!” from across the room. It never fails — and it’s a universal problem. Shawn Johnson’s latest video captures this moment perfectly.
Yesterday, Drew, Drew’s mom, and Jett (1 year) shared an Instagram reel that made us all laugh.
Johnson is seen in the classic mom-on the-phone pose at the beginning. Johnson is wearing her hair down in a ponytail. She balances her cellphone on her shoulder and one ear. She’s busy with one finger, lifting the other to silence the children.
“Telling my kids I need one sec on the phone…” she wrote.
Every mom knows the importance of this. That It is going to happen.
The video flips to a view of “my kids,” and it shows a clip of a screaming sheep, which is 100% accurate in my opinion. You would think they are in the middle of a dire emergency just because mom is taking a work call — or catching up with friends or scheduling an appointment. It doesn’t matter the reason, the person on the other line, or the duration of the call, every child turns into a screaming sheep when their mama is on the phone.
“Anddd suddenly everything is urgent ?,” Johnson quipped in the caption. Andrew East commented on the post, “I’m laughing so hard.”
This video can be shared by many other parents. “Every working Mom every day ?,” one person said.
“I’d love to say it gets better but mine are 11 and 13 and now they do the Will Ferrell, ‘Ma! The Meatloaf!’ yell from Wedding Crashers anytime I’m on the phone,” one person wrote.
Another said, “I’m convinced that mothers must emit some scent that kids can smell whenever they’re talking on the phone!”
“Yes!!! Or they start yelling ‘mommy shushed me!’ and take off crying,” one person wrote. Is it possible that we all have the exact same children? This is because it’s true.
“I am 95% convinced they thing the phone means an emergency — either I have one or they need to create one. Or both. ??♀️,” someone else said.
“Omg I watched this 10 times in a row!!! I’ve never relayed to anything more in my lifeeeeeeee ?????????,” someone else said.
Johnson and East share funny parenting content on social channels. get parents.
These Hollywood parents are a total hoot.
