I admit it, my children watch television. *oh the horror!* JT, now 3.5 years old is a total sponge and she proved that to us recently at breakfast. As we were all eating, she looked up from her bowl and said, “Don’t worry little people, JT is a gentle giant!” We were in absolute hysterics because it was just so random. When I was relaying the story to family, my 13 year old nephew enlightened us to the fact that she was quoting a Progressive Insurance commercial. Apparently that annoying Flo character grabbed JT’s attention so much that she uses that line all.the.time!
Of course we thought, on no, she watches too much tv! But then again, we should have learned our lesson a few weeks earlier when my mother in law told me a story about JT. She was helping her in the bathroom, and she said, “Nana, we’re all out of toilet paper, can you toss me a roll?” My mother in law being quick on her feet pretended to play along with the Angel Soft commercial re-enactment and ‘threw’ her a roll, to which JT of course said, “Whoa, you knocked my hair off.” And on and on the commercial went….
Seriously, she’s a funny kid but yes we have curbed the TV watching, promise!
