Mommy Boots Speaks {Dialect Vlog}

Someone passed on a link to Ashley Getting Dressed, who did a fun and cute dialect vlog. The point is to say a list of words, and answer a list of questions to see how different bloggers sound in different parts of the country. A few bloggers that I know and love have participated:
Pickles & Paisleys
Little BGCG
Haute Single Mama
She’s Mommafied
Million Dream Mom
Daddy Green’s Pride (my husband!)
Baby Dickey
Baby Gator’s Den
3 Kids and Us
Soleil Selene
Mama Dweeb
Mama & the Dudes

Here is my vlog. Enjoy!

Here is the list of words, and also the list of questions :

Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you say to address a group of people?
What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped
body and extremely long legs?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry
groceries at the supermarket?
What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

I’ve learned a few things by watching my own vlog.

  • My hair looked funny when I recorded this.
  • My sinuses make my eyes dry. I blink a lot.
  • The angle I chose? Not so flattering.
  • I’m dorktastic!

I should have done something with my hair and slapped on some damn concealer. Hope you enjoyed me in my spaztastic, tired-looking glory. If you create a dialect vlog, be sure to link up in the comments!


  1. When it rains and it sunny out, we call it a sun shower! "Oh it wont last long, its just a little sun shower."

  2. I love this!!! By the way is there any different answer to the rain falling while the sun is shining?

    • Mommy_Boots says:

      Well, according to some it's a "sunshower" (see above commenter) but apparently in the south it's "the devil beating his wife". o_O

      • That is what we call it here in the South. But as a child I always wondered what sort of woman got duped into marrying the devil.

  3. pants

  4. I totally did a video! I love dialect videos. LOL. Mine is here:

  5. There was a certain part that I was like "ZOMG I AM COMMENTING ON THAT!" but now I forgot. You're cute and stuff.

  6. Why are your comments moderated? You suck.

  7. hahaha, cracking up at your sideways glance at the camera regarding your drug usage. and your vlog just reminded me–we took a family vacation to TN was I was little. The waitress asking me what kind of Coke I wanted??? BLEW MY MIND. I probably thought she was a freaking idiot, but spent the entire rest of the vacation trying to have my parents explain to me what IN THE WORLD was going on! I totally remember being like… but Coke is COKE! I don't get it! If Coke isn't Coke, what's pop? hahaha. I think I was traumatized by that. DAMN YOU, TN.

  8. I like how you stop in the middle of everything and dance to her toy. You are such a dorktopus

  9. Hi! I am joining in tonight and having fun listening to everyone! This is very enlightening and educational, I gotta say!
    I posted a dialect vlog on my blog, I'm from Kansas and do NOT have an accent, I swear.

    I can hear your Chicago coming through in "both" very strong.
    I have never heard it called Rolling! And I have never heard of rolling drugs either but then again I'm soooo sheltered LOL
    Yup! I so totally call everything coke too! I thought I was crazy but guess not. LOL @ the toy! We call those booby traps kids purposefully leave on the floor to drive us crazy. I am seriously cracking up over the toy. I can't hardly type.

    Daddy long legs are NOT terrifying. Did you know they are actually poisonous but have such a tiny mouth they can never bite you? Yeah I didn't either till I met my husband.

    Rain falling while sun is shining….that is what I call it too! I had no idea there was a name for it till this thing. I had so much fun!

    Come see me! Thanks!

  10. you sounded cute! I could tell you were from Chicago! I was born in Michigan and then lived in New York but then lived in NE from kindergarten on and so many people say I don't sound like a Nebraskan. They always say I sound like I am from the East Coast, so weird to hear that! Loved that the cat stepped on the toy! No drugs, hmmm!

    I don't think I want to hear or watch me on video so I doubt I will being a vlog. It looks like fun though!

  11. Melissa says:

    LOL…love the dialect vlog! Strangely enough though you and I say a lot of those words the same way and I grew up in Alabama…go figure. My nickname in high school was yankee bitch because I didn't talk like an uneducated bumpkin.

  12. I definitely heard some Chicago when you said "both" … it's kinda funny being just a few hours south of Chicago we sound dramatically different than the folks up north.

  13. When I lived in Oklahoma (for all of 6 weeks) they called all the soda "Coke" too.

    And your hair looks just fine…and speaking of sinuses, you should hear my congested vlog. :)
