Mateo was watching Yo Gabba Gabba yesterday after we got home from daycare, and I was trying to finish up my homework.
On almost every episode of Yo Gabba Gabba there is a feature called "Dancey Dance." For this episode, Leslie Hall was on with her Junior Jams, and she was teaching how to do the "Razzle Dazzle." Mateo began to mimic her. It was very cute. So cute, in fact, I really wanted to videotape it, but if I got up it would have ruined the moment, so I just IMed my husband telling him what Mateo was doing.
When my husband came home, we put the episode on so my husband could see Mateo's mimicking action, but of course, he wasn't going for it and wanted to just sit in my lap and be goofy.
So here is the real point to this post, as I'm sure you're thinking "Okay...this is so not amusing, why am I reading this?"
This is Leslie Hall:
I wanted to find the actual video of her on Yo Gabba Gabba, but I couldn't. Nor could I find a good full-body picture of her is her gold spandex body suit.
It dawned on me last night that Mateo could possibly be thinking she looks like me. Because on the weekends, when we're not going anywhere, I wear my glasses. And I don't do my hair, so I'm fully sporting the bedhead look (I always pull my hair back before bed and so it ends up all kinds of crazy by the morning). And while I don't own a full body, gold-colored spandex bodysuit, I have been known to show a very similar figure as hers, which is not svelte by any means. I too am missing a chin. I too am soft and squishy with barely a body shape left, unless "blob" is a body shape. I supposed it could be.
When I told my husband that Mateo probably thinks Leslie Hall in all her gold glory is me, he got this weird look on his face and said, "Noooo, he doesn't."
I'm not so sure he was saying the truth.
Razzle dazzle and glitter hands, my friends! Razzle dazzle!
