Yesterday, Good Morning America featured the #likeagirl and the #likeaboy posts I wrote a few weeks back, inspired by the Always ad. It was a momumentous moment where I appeared on network television to discuss a very inspiring movement and I totally forgot about it because I was too busy negotiating Bubble Guppies episodes between Mazzy and Harlow.
Do you know they have their own TV preferences now?
Actually, they both like all the same shows, they are just very specific in the order that they prefer to watch them. Harlow was adamant about Bubble Guppies while Mazzy was more in a Paw Patrol place. Finally, I got Mazzy to agree to Bubble Guppies as long as we watched the birthday episode but Harlow really wanted to watch "clam". Then I had to talk Harlow down off the ledge and promise her that—
RING RING RING!!!!
"You sounded great and you looked like a model!"
(Obviously, this was my mother but I had no idea what she was talking about.)
"On Good Morning America!!!"
"Oh shit. I totally forgot!"
My mom had recorded it (like a good mother should) and ended up replaying it for me over facetime. Ah, the wonders of modern technology!
Yep— there I was. I don't know if "model" is really appropriate, but I'll go with acceptable looking and not drooling. Always a plus.
Thank you to everyone who submitted pictures and gave ABC permission to use them! So many people responded and were excited to have their kids represented which was really awesome. This #likeaboy thing wasn't really my doing, it was you guys who started submitting the pictures on your own. I also have to thank Baby Sideburns for posting about it as well. Thank you all for getting me on the news to talk about something meaningful as opposed to my typical baby meme ridiculousness. (Long Live Baby Suiting!)
I also thought this was a good opportunity to post a few more #likeaboy pictures. Because they just get more and more adorable…
