It’s You Again…

By Glinda

 

When the Munchkin left toddlerhood, I packed away many of his DVD’s as he considered them too “babyish.”

I heaved a sigh of regret as I boxed up The Wiggles.

You see, for many a mom, Anthony the Blue Wiggle is the bright spot in a sea of mind-numbing toddler programming.  When your choices boil down to screechy red monsters, blue dogs that don’t talk, purple dinosaurs and trains with faces that don’t move, The Wiggles start looking mighty appealing.

You’ve got Murray, the earnest, goofy one.   Then you’ve got Jeff, the serial narcoleptic.  Then comes the lead singer, which used to be Greg, the nice tall one.  Now you’ve got Sam, who has a fine tenor and is light on his toes.  Anthony?  Well, he’s the hot one.

He made watching four grown men do aerobics to songs like “Hot Potato” and “Get Ready to Wiggle” semi-bearable. 

But my son refused to watch the DVD’s once he hit preschool, and there was no point in having them take up space in the house, so banished to the garage they were.

My pregnancy with our daughter six years later caught us by surprise. I had thought I would never experience another toddlerhood again.

Yet, here I am.  My daughter loves to dance and loves music.  So what else fits as naturally for her as The Wiggles, I ask?  I eagerly dug the DVD’s out of the garage, not to mention bookmarked a couple of the vidoes on YouTube. 

And there he was, in all his glory.

Anthony of the blue eyes and salt and pepper hair.

Hello, gorgeous.

    I’ve been at baby showers where we mom’s avidly discuss which one is the cute one – I completely agree with you, Anthony is the best.

    They were the first DVD we ever bought our daughter, who’s almost 2. She will demand her Wiggles, banging the DVD case on anything in her path!

    Wow, I’ve not had that conversation at a baby shower! 😉

    Yet, anyway.

    So glad to hear it’s not just me. Anthony IS quite the handsome devil. The boys of Zooboomafoo aren’t too shabby either.

    Oh yes, the Zooboomafu brothers are not shabby, but the show got taken off my local PBS channel ages ago.
