A mild case of the Herbies

Jack, my four-year-old, loves planes, trains, cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, etc. Knowing that, it came as no shock that Jack fell in love with the movie Herbie Fully Loaded when the Disney channel played it back-to-back over the weekend.

Jack, of course, had to watch it both times in its entirety. Afterwards, that is all he could talk about: "Herbie this", "Herbie that", "Dad, you need to buy me the Herbie movie".

Yesterday, Jack and I were in the living room - Jack was playing with his toys, I was on the computer. The TV was on but mainly just for background noise.

All of a sudden Jack starts yelling and laughing about this woman on television having said Herbie. I didn't know what he was talking about and until I completely acknowledge what he is saying, he will continue to yell, scream and carry on.

So I immediately rewound the commercial (what did we ever do before DVRs?) and quickly realized that it was one of those feminine commercials that states not to use said product if you are suffering from even a mild case of...well... let's just say it wasn't Herbies.

Normally, I would take an opportunity such as this to correct Jack's vocabulary and/or grammar...this time however, I just let it go.

That is really, really funny! Can you believe the stuff they learn from COMMERCIALS. Its really ridiculous.

I've been thinking of you last week-I got strep throat and it was awful. I can't believe you had it for so long.
