Update: RIP, Billy Mays
Our son turned 8mo’s today and he’s a big old happy, bouncy, bubbly boy.
It’s been so much fun watching him grow and learn. I’m so happy we decided to have a child.
So what’s this have to do with Billy Mays? I’ll get to that in a second.
As the little fellow has grown he’s taken to like a few things he sees and hears.
Just like his daddy he loves cars. When we’re on walks and a car drives by his little head pops up and he just follows the car until it disappears. A car commercial on TV will cause him to spin his head right around to see the car. Just the sound of the engine alone causes the reaction. It’s like remote control.
A NASCAR race is hilarious. He gets so excited he’ll get the hickups.
Another thing that really get his attention, just like his daddy, is Megyn Kelley of FOX News. That’s a hot young lady right there. I really think the boy likes her because Kelley and the boy’s mom look quite similar, but it’s funny none-the-less when his little head swings around to check out a hot blonde.
Now we get to Billy Mays. The pitchman from hell. I don’t know what it is about that man’s voice, but our son thinks he’s hilarious.
Yesterday was a tough one. The little guy is teething and constipated. Needless to say, he wasn’t much for sleeping.
After a very, very long time we finally got him to fall asleep and I was taking him up the stairs to bed. I swear I didn’t get 3 steps up when all of a sudden, “HELLO, BILLY MAYS HERE FOR….”
SOB! The boy lifted his head to watch his buddy on TV. I was so pissed. The boy just stared at him kicking with excitement. And for the record, no, I do not look like Billy Mays in any way, shape, or especially form. Our son just loves his voice for some reason.
I can’t tell you how long it took to get him to sleep again, but it was a long, long time.
For the record, he got over his constipation this morning. TWICE! Man-o-man I hate that.
