Free association

Baby boy and I were eating our morning snack today, watching the "Host Chat" portion of Regis and Kelly, when he jumped up and, through a mouthful of toast, started yelling "Mama! Mama!" while pointing to Kelly Ripa. I can see how he'd be easily confused:

Kelly Ripa - Blond and styled, perfectly coiffed
Mama - Brunette, hair hasn't been washed since Monday, but I think there were probably remnants of yesterday's mascara still hanging around on my luscious lashes.

Kelly Ripa - 100 pounds soaking wet
Mama - How much does a compact car weigh? Because I'm certain that, during this pregnancy, I've surely surpassed it. And to be soaking wet would imply that I had a chance to shower. Not since Monday.

Kelly Ripa - funny. Sometimes.
Mama - Well, this one I can understand. I'm a regular comedienne. Hey - I performed at comedy clubs in NYC, so I must be a little amusing.

I guess I should be flattered. I find Kelly Ripa to be an attractive woman (but not in the same way that I find Angelina Jolie to be attractive.), so I guess my son has good taste. Makes me feel a little better about his obsession with pink tu-tus and purses in the toy store.



Well, I don't like Kelly, but I am sure it's my jealousy of her weight and body. Hey, your babe has great taste in women. Bet her personality sucks in real life???!!!

Matter Of Fact Mommy said...

i'm with you - i think kelly's "moderately attractive", but nowhere near angelina... i.e., i wouldn't go gay for kelly.

your son is a future comedian too!
