Every once in awhile I have the luxury of catching a few minutes of Good Morning America, a morning show I truly enjoy watching. As a busy mommy I try to find time to connect with things that are going on in the world and GMA helps with that. Unfortunately, Austin has his own morning agenda and Curious George often wins out over GMA. However, EVERY time I tune in, and Austin is around, the following phrases fill the room from his excited little body.
"Mommy, mommy!!! Look it's Daddy. It's Daddy!!!"
(Austin waving) "Hi Daddy! Hi Daddy!"
"Whatchoo doing Daddy?"
(Chris Cuomo not listening or responding to Austin)
(long pauses of watching "Daddy" talking on TV...Austin wondering how "Daddy" got in there but not being able to articulate that)
"I see you Daddy! Hey....Daddy! Hey Daddy?"
(Chris Cuomo still not responding)
(Austin gives up and goes to play......or asks to watch Curious George)
I am not making this up! He truly believes that Mark is sometimes the host of GMA. Of course, Mark cannot observe this for himself because, well, that would be really confusing for a two year old.
For me, it is sweet entertainment and I love it.
Here is a comparison photo of Chris and Mark for your judgment. Can you see where Austin gets it?
