Stop, wait a minute!

While promoting Camp Halftime, his upcoming four-part comedic series launched by Pepsi, Donald Faison couldn’t help but touch on his music-loving 2-year-old son Rocco.

“Rocco’s really heavy into Bruno Mars‘ ‘Uptown Funk,’ like most people are,” Faison, 41, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“When it comes on, he’ll dance for the whole song. His favorite part is ‘Stop, wait a minute. Fill my cup, put some liquor in it.’ When that happens, ‘Julio, get the stretch,’ he does the dance moves, he stops, he calls Julio. It’s hilarious. He commands Julio to get the stretch.”

Faison, who shares two children with wife CaCee Cobb, says his youngest child, 8-month-old daughter Wilder Frances, has her own little quirk.

Donald Faison isn’t new to fatherhood, but having two kids under 2 would throw even the most seasoned parent for a loop.

“Before, I used to be able to get out and do a lot more things, and now I find myself at home way more than I’m used to,” he told PEOPLE at Monday’s annual L.A. Golf Classic in Burbank, California. “But I enjoy it. I enjoy having fun with the kids.”

They’re having lots of fun with son Rocco, 22 months, and daughter Wilder Frances, 7 weeks, but have Faison and wife CaCee Cobb been able to get that ever-elusive good night’s sleep?

“No, not really, but I’m alright with it. In time I will, [but] not for years,” Faison, 40, says with a laugh. “Wait a minute! I’m trying to get some sleep by then. By the sixth month, if we’re not sleeping through the night, we got a problem!”
