he is a star

so my son's first commercial is airing now. we finally got to see it and he looks adorable.

we happened to have been eating in a local restaurant where my son LOVES the pancakes (does not matter what time of day it is, he gets the pancakes). this was back in february i think. Anyway...we walked in and a film crew was in there making a commercial. We sat to down to eat breakfast and the film crew spotted our animated little diner and asked if they could film him

he took direction very well. they said take a bite of your pancake and he did. they said now look at the camera and give us a thumbs up which he did. of course he opened his mouth and showed off the chewed up pancake when he did it....ah...3 year olds.

they filmed him for a little bit and that was it. on my last visit to the restaurant, the owner said "jude is going to be in the commercial and it's airing soon." i asked what channels and he said FoxNews, HGTV, and ESPN. Of course not nationally but I was thinking it would be on our local cable access channel only.

then yesterday monkey's mom called and said she just saw him on tv. so i kept the tv on fox news all afternoon and finally saw it. I yelled for the kids to come in and watch. Magda laughed and jude had the biggest grin watching himself on tv. They ended up getting him just eating and looking out of the corner of his eye with a sly grin on his face. Super cute.

Later last night...i heard an argument erupt in the other room. "JUST 'CUZ YOU GOT YOUR OWN COMMERCIAL, YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS YOU KNOW!" my daughter yelled. She continued to say "YOU'RE NOT EVEN THE STAR". she is a little jealous of her baby brother.

Congrats on having a little star! Condolences on having to leave your TV on Fox News all afternoon. I hope you kept your children away! ;)

You can tell your daughter that I'm on TV all the time and I'm not the boss of ANYTHING, either at home or work. (Hmm..the word verification is making me write 'featsmel'. Computers are getting scary)

First pancakes, then he's doing lines of pixie-stick powder off of his sister's Barbie mirror.

i've gotten five phone calls from various people asking me "is Jude in a commercial?"
must be in high rotation!

as for Magda, she told me she has a new dream. She said "mom, I have a dream but i'm afraid it won't come true." I asked her what it was and she said she "wants to be a great ice skater and call herself blue lightening."
I asked her why it won't come true and she said (about her ice skating abilities) "because i stink."

My daughter was once in a public service announcement for influenza shots. She was just about two years old. We just happened to be in the doctor's office when a crew was taping. They got some good footage of her wailing! (I forgot to give her Tylenol.) Whenever she gets bossy when her friends sleep over, I pop the tape in to show her how vulnerable she once was. That usually curbs her behavior.
