My Son Met The Man

Tom Bergeron smaller photoCharlie loves to watch America’s Funniest Home Videos. He will play the same ones over and over again. Sometimes we have to tell him find another clip because he will watch it on his iPad and rewind over and over on the same part. He has done this for years.
Well, we were invited to go to the taping of the Grand Spectacular Show at Disney World. When we told Charlie he started to cry. We asked him what was wrong and he said he was nervous and scared to meet Tom Bergeron. I told him “no big deal” (that is our phrase when he says he is nervous or worried).
They day came, well I should say night. The taping was from 11:30pm -3:30am. We had to stand the whole time. We were blessed to be in the VIP section, the front row of the audience! WOW!
They gave us all these special mickey ears that light up. No one in Orlando has them yet.
We waited and then all of a sudden there he was walking up right beside us. Charlie turned and looked at me with the biggest smile:) He was so happy!
We taped for about 2 hours or so and then they had the grand finale choosing the winner and then all of a sudden all this Disney confetti and streamers came out all over the stage and they played “Celebration”. It was so much fun!
We were about to leave and were asked if we wanted pictures with Tom Bergeron. Uhhh, YES!
Charlie and his sister Chelsea went over to Tom and got several pictures. Charlie said, “Tom Bergeron it was very nice to meet you!” He smiled and said, “it was great to meet you too”.
We were leaving the park at about 4:00am and Charlie said, “Mom meeting Tom Bergeron was one of the highlights of my whole life!”

The episode will air on May 19, 2013.  Check it out and look for Charlie!
