My son (13 and autistic) also parrots things he hears on TV. Especially weather reports. Sometimes we chuckle at our little weatherman.

(I'm totally new, caught your blog link in the comments section on NPR a few minutes ago.)

My six year old parrots EVERYTHING. I listened to the 'It's a Pillow! It's a Pet! It's a Pillow Pet!' for a YEAR before I got him one a few months ago for Christmas. (It's still being used, so I suppose he really wanted the darned thing.)

It's so.freaking.annoying. I hated commercials before I had children. Now I despise them with a heated passion.

Brian (the six year old, his brother is fifteen months and doesn't get any at all) watches television at his dad's house on the weekends. Otherwise, he gets it once in a blue moon - sick days, snow days, days that I can't take the endless chatter any longer. Commercials are about 50% of the reason why I refuse to even turn it on while they are awake. (I love my DVR. :|)
