My Son, The Walking Infomercial

Harrison has an excellent memory and also loves to watch commercials. So, the other day I was feeling exasperated with Elizabeth and said, "What am I going to do with you?" Harrison replied, "Mom, if you think we have too much stuff, you could get some Space Bag Storage Packs." M, "What??" "You can put them anywhere -- under the bed, in closets, or in drawers." When I realized he was quoting an infomercial, it really cracked me up and improved my mood. (Although I just realized he was probably thinking we could put Elizabeth in one of those things, suck all the air out with a vacuum and shove her under the bed.)

The next day he randomly said, "Mom, to order Space Bag Storage Packs, you must be 18 years or older." Now, if I could only get him to listen and remember everything I say. . .

Tell me about it. We have the same double standard of comprehension and attention paid going on over here :)

That is hilarious. But also scary. You have to be really careful with wha he sees because he will remember it forever. Julianna's like that,too.

Harrison is so funny. I love all the silly things he says. Tyson is the same way but more selective...its always about toys. Your party looked great!

That is so funny! After we talked about it the other night we went to Target the next day and Sidney proceeded to rattle off all the specs on a toy there that she wanted for Christmas....from too many commercials! I laughed and thought of Harrison!

I would play the "You must be 18 or older" card for everything!

oh, that is too funny. Tristan was the same way. Now he writes the phone numbers down for me. : ) Melena is now starting to repeat those commercials too . They generally don't repeat the toy ones, it's for Oxy Clean, or other household products. TOO CUTE!!! Do you need space bags for christmas? I could buy you some! Harrison would be so thrilled.
