Other Things a Mom Overheard on Her Son’s Zoom Lesson

Stephanie Hollifield, a mom and writer at Momstrosity, is doing her best to help her kiddos adapt to virtual learning. And while having the children home day in and day out is stressful, Stephanie shared some of the hilarious tidbits she overheard while her son was learning with his classmates online – and we can’t help but laugh.

“Today, I listened while my son attended Zoom school,” she wrote. “Did you know the students could push a button to ‘raise their hands’ and make a comment or ask a question? It was riveting! I made a list of some of my favorite comments from the students and the teacher.” We pulled out a few of our favorites, but be sure to check out her full list:

  • “Friend, please put your lizard away. We don’t bring lizards to school.”
  • “My sister has a cat who chases lizards and eats off their tails.”
  • “Why are some people here, but we….we can’t even see them?!”
  • “My brother won’t stop shooting nerf guns at me!”
  • “My dog keeps on having babies because my grandma lets her off the leash.”
  • “I LOVE MY AUNT!!!!!”
  • “PLEASE MUTE YOURSELF.”
  • “We do not have blankets on our heads at school. Put your blanket down.”

If there’s a silver lining to learning at home, it’s that children can be unintentionally hysterical. Moreover, Stephanie took the time to acknowledge that teachers are the real heroes of virtual learning. “Bless these perfect patient saints,” she said. “After seeing all that they put up with, I think all teachers automatically go to heaven.”

Adidas’s New Vegan Superstar Sneakers Are Covered With Flowers Made Out of Colorful Threads

The Kicks: Adidas Originals x Sean Wotherspoon Superearth Superstar

The Price: $110

Why We Love Them: Adidas has teamed up with Sean Wotherspoon for its Superearth initiative, and together they have reimagined a rad new version of the iconic Superstar sneaker that has flowers embroidered on it. You probably remember Sean from his collaboration with Nike for his creation of rainbow Air Max 97s that went viral a few years back. For his collab with Adidas, Sean made sure the sneakers are free from animal ingredients, making this one of a handful of vegan sneakers by the brand.

“People know that I’m vegan, and it’s a foundation of who I am. It’s a cornerstone of all my projects, and part of sustainable living. Adidas loved it and we started to look at all the ways we can bring vegan materials to the Superstar,” he said in a press release. The sneakers feature floral drawings sketched by Wotherspoon, with embroidered threads emerging from the upper.

Through the Superearth initiative, the sneakers were created in mind to reduce material waste during the footwear manufacturing process, as well as the use of products like recycled rubber. Keep reading to see all angles of the seriously unique floral sneakers that are set to drop Aug. 29 on Superearth initiative.
