It's CPB....RUN!

Monkey and Baby Bug were chasing each other around the house today. Not that that in itself is anything special-it's pretty much a daily occurrence and not something that would typically capture my attention unless crying or bloodshed was involved. Today however I happened to have a monster headache and they happened to be working themselves into particularly feverish and high pitched squeals, so I stopped them and asked (with more irritation than was probably reasonable)...

Me: Just what is going on here, son?

Monkey(throwing his hands to his face and smiling): RUN MOMMY! Baby Bug is The Orpor-pewtion!

Me: The what?

Monkey: She's the cor-puke-ation Mommy....RUUUUUUUUUUN!

Of course, Monkey tries to go skipping off full of giggles, but I stop him in his tracks.

Me: It's not nice to call names, son.

Monkey: I'm not! Mommy, I'm just pretending.

Me: It's not okay to call names, even if it's just pretend.

Monkey: But Mommy I'm NOT! Baby Bug is the cor-rulation for uplick roadtesting and she's chasing me. See, she's smiling! It's okay!

Me: She's a what now?!

Monkey(running away with Baby Bug hot on his trail now): She's the orpurtation for puplick bro-tasting and she's chasing the viewers like MEEEEEEEEE!

Hubby and I look at each other as it begins to dawn on us.

Me: Did he just say "viewers like me"?

Hubby: I think so.

Me (Snickering): Do you think he means....?

Hubby: He totally does (laughing).

Me: Son, are you running away from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting?

Monkey(giggling hysterically): YEAH Mommy~Look! Here she comes to get the Viewers Like Me! Thank Yooooooooooooooou!

I think we may have to institute a ban on OPB. Still, it was adorable enough to take my mind off my headache while the Tylenol kicked in. The kids give headaches, and the kids take them away....

That is so funny! Sometimes that TV thing we do comes back to haunt us. Mine used to recite infomercials to me and when they would see the stuff in Walmart or Target. They knew all the reasons to buy it NOW-it was too funny.
