Jeanne Robertson On The Challenges Of Raising Boys

In this comedic clip, Jeanne Robertson tells a story about the challenges of raising boys.


The story starts off with her talking about how great of a university Elon is and how her son, Beaver, went there.

“Beaver, you graduated from Elon University by the grace of God,” Jeanne says as the crowd erupts in laughter.

Then she goes on to share the story of when her son called her to inform her that he had gotten into a wreck on campus. He said that he was just leaving the gymnasium and was going to drive to the library, but Jeanne knows better. She informs the audience that the gymnasium and the library on Elon’s campus share a parking lot and you would only need to walk a few minutes to get from one place to the other, but she decides to not bring that to her son’s attention and just lets him keep telling his story.

He shares that he got into a wreck because his foot must have gone numb and pressed down on the accelerator instead of the break. He claims that his shoes were too small, and he was supposed to get new shoes over spring break with his mom but they never went.

“Don’t blame this wreck on me cause I didn’t get you some shoes,” says Jeanne as the audience is laughing.

Then her son says there is something else he wants to tell her.

“No, just be calm, I’m on the way. We’ll come to that parking lot,” Jeanne says in response to her son. “The one thing that I need for you to do is call campus security.”

Her son then goes on to say, “Mom, that’s what I’ve been trying my best to tell you. Campus security is who I hit!”

The whole audience is cracking up by the end of the story!

“I am the mother of boys,” comments one person on YouTube. “I swear this could have been happening at my house. I spit coffee at the end of this.”

“I love it Jeanne,” writes another person online. “All mothers with sons know exactly where this was going. Thanks for sharing, stay well and have a blessed day.”
