The Wiggles and I were formally introduced in the spring of 2009 at the corner of the children’s DVD collection area in our local library. Bella was really into her Praise Baby DVD back then and I wanted to find something different for her. Yes, it was ALL MY FAULT! “I” initiated the search, “I” found them and “I” introduced them to Bella. And on that first day of meeting The Wiggles, I stepped into the point of no return…. :-)
My baby girl LOVES The Wiggles! I don’t know what it is about four grown-up guys singing, dancing and pretty much acting absolutely silly but Bella is definitely “addicted” to them nonetheless! :-) It was ok for me in the beginning but it was definitely getting on my nerves as time went by, especially when Bella wanted to watch them 7 o’clock in the morning before my coffee! And during the first trimester of my second pregnancy, my annoyance with them reached the ultimate peak that it even made be nauseated every time I heard them! No joke! I literally had to move to another room just to avoid them so that I’d feel better! :-) But there was no avoiding them in the car when I had to listen to their CDs and I can assure you, it was very acute!
However, there will be no getting rid of The Wiggles from our house any time soon… My little Bella loves them too much! *^^* In fact, I purchased three of their DVDs for Bella for Christmas last year, which made her day as she walked around the house with them in her hands all day, and who knows how many she’ll accumulate by being adorable and irresistable to her Daddy during their shopping outings. :-)
But frankly, they kind of started to grow on me and I actually sing along to their songs these days believe it or not! I know all the characters by their names and I actually have conversations with my daughter as if Dorothy the Dinosaur, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus are real! I guess they are not that bad after all and after reading how they got started (the three members of The Wiggles were formal musicians who wanted to be preschool teachers and the whole thing got started as a school project!), I got to appreciate their love for children. That’s right, people. I’m saying that I actually like The Wiggles!!! Don’t tell anybody though! :-)
There are numerous “peculiar” things in this world that my daughter finds entertaining and though I’ll never understand the reasons why, I’m happy to watch my daughter laugh and giggle at them.
