Right. Now that I’m in my room and Lea is asleep and the husband’s putting Ezra to sleep I can elaborate on my day so far. Bobby’s photo op was at 10.30, autographs about an hour after that, then the Bobby/Emilie duo was an hour after that. Which is why he saw my kids quite a few times in that short space of time.
Anyway - we get there and Ezra goes “Bobby!” and walks over to him. Bobby’s loving the outfits on the kids. I’m holding Lea, and there had been mention that nobody would be carrying kids so I start to crouch down because there’s no way I can carry Ezra as well. Bobby goes “come on up here” and just lifts Ezra. He then starts like talking into his ear to get him to look at the camera and stuff and it’s super adorable. We get the photo done and head out.
About an hour after this we head to get autographs. Lea’s sleeping so it’s just me and Ezra. I got 7 things signed so I knew I’d have quite a bit of time with it so I figured I’d ask him OUAT questions then. We had been told no handshakes etc and we get to the front and Bobby goes “Here he is!” and Ezra goes “Bobby!” and they just start talking?????? Ezra gets two high fives and I’m like alright I’m not about to interrupt this so I just let them babble on. Just as Bobby signs my last item, the fire alarm goes off (AGAIN) and we all have to evacuate.
About an hour after that, we get called for the Bobby/Emilie duos. Lea’s just woken up so she comes along, and Ezra has literally been screaming “BOBBYYYYYY” the entire hour he hasn’t been around him so he’s obviously coming as well. We line up and again the queue moves pretty quick and we get to the front and Ezra goes “BOBBY!” who at the same time goes “There’s my little man!” then sticks his arms out and goes “Do you want to come up?” So Ezra goes over and Emilie is just cooing over Lea and saying “Hello again little one” in her baby voice and we pose for the picture. We end up taking quite a while because the cameraman was so nice and trying to take one with Lea looking but every time she did look Emilie wasn’t looking because she was trying to get Lea to look and this entire time Bobby and Ezra were just going “say cheeeeeeeese” and IT WAS SO CUTE. So we’re done and we go and Ezra goes “byeeeeee” and they wave at him and say bye and Emilie goes “look at his little suit!”
And finally Bobby walked past me in the lobby as I was making kissy noises at Lea to make her smile and he freaking smirked and I basically died.
That’s my story! Now I’m just waiting for his panel - then we’re having dinner, then driving back home!
Huuuuuuge thank you to my husband @julienoora for saving up to surprise me with the pass and extras and watching the kids while I’m off doing stuff while they’re grumpy even though you have an assignment due in a few hours. You are the actual best.
