Ok, the title of this post either made you smile or made you cringe. I know the feeling. Right now, The Wiggles are Big Trouble’s obsession. Do they sometimes get annoying? Yes. Could it be worse? ABSOLUTELY (see his previous use of torturous kids shows)!!!! So I’m not going to complain.
I actually catch myself singing along and dancing like an idiot with them without even realizing it and Big Trouble laughs like the combination of his crazy mother and 4 Australian guys and their pals are the best thing ever. That works for me. (sidenote: I haven’t seen much of the new Wiggles, which includes a girl but I’m pretty sure I will still prefer old school Wiggles – I think I like to see guys making fools of themselves for kids more, but I’ll reserve judgment)
woman mom enough to suck it up and let him enjoy the Wiggles, even going so far as to continuously put the same On Demand episode on repeat and check out dvds from the library so he always has some available. (another sidenote: young Anthony was not nearly as handsome as old Anthony – he aged really well! Now you know how pathetic my life has become because I am commenting on the attractiveness of a Wiggle….hanging head in shame.)
I think of all of the shows out these days, I can tolerate the Wiggles the best (at least on repeat) so I am kind of grateful that he hasn’t latched onto other, more annoying shows. But, I know there are others who detest The Wiggles like I detest Caillou.
So, what are your favorite kids’ shows (any other Wiggles lovers out there)? And which ones make you want to stab yourself in the eyes with a fork (uh, hello there, Caillou)? 🙂
