Tonight, you and I continued our tradition of watching every major late night television event together. So far here is what you and I have watched.
Jay Leno's last show as the host of The Tonight Show
Conan O'Brien's first show as the host of TTS
Conan O'Brien's last show as the host of TTS
And finally the premiere of Coco's new show, simply called; "Conan"
You've might have noticed we skipped over Jay's return to hosting The Tonight Show. I didn't want to stunt your comedy growth.
One of the silly things I want to hopefully pass along to you is my love for late night talk shows, variety shows, and vaudevillian entertainers. When my Dad would travel for business, my Mom would often let me stay up and watch Johnny Carson's Tonight Show. In fact your Grandfather was out of town the night Carson retired and my Mom let me stay up to watch Carson say goodbye. It's a very vivid memory and probably the moment I fell in love with the various late night hosts and characters. I can't wait to watch more with you and more importantly, talk with you about it.
Today, I picked you up from day care and when I put you in the car, you repeatedly asked for "Momma". I've heard you laugh, babble, and sort of say "daaaddYYYY" but I've never really heard your voice until today. I guess it's hard to understand and know what your voice would sound like until you started using words that I can comprehend. But your voice was sweet, soft with a hint of inquisitiveness and further proof that time doesn't slow down for anything. You're growing everyday and everyday I wonder what we did before you were here.
