What does this picture say to you? Bizarre Super Bowl commercial? "Bedside Toys: The Musical?" Or did you automatically recognize this guy as Muno? If it was anything but the latter, then you would have found yourself quite confused, and possibly traumatized, by the experience Eli and I had last Friday. If you knew it was Muno, though, you could've had more fun than you care to admit with the toddler/preschool set at Yo Gabba Gabba Live.
I drove Eli up to Fort Wayne, Indiana to see DJ Lance Rock and the gang take their trippy Nick Jr. show on the road. It was originally supposed to be some bonding time between Eli and Mike, but then he had to go and get a job. I'm guessing it doesn't speak too highly of your dedication if you tell your new boss, "Yeah, I'll start next Monday, but then I'll need Friday off to get my preschool groove on."
I'll admit it: I wasn't super-excited to pull Eli out of school and drive 3 1/2 hours in one day. I figured I'd already paid my dues. I did suffer through "The Wiggles Live" with Elena, after all. Then again, if sitting next to Clint Black at The Wiggles is suffering, I'll take a little more, please. This is what happens when you see The Wiggles in Nashville.
Something funny happened in that theater, though. I had a pretty good time. Maybe it was the utter goofiness of these characters.
Maybe it was the balloons.
No. I'm pretty sure it was because of Biz Markie. Any kids' show that finds a way to incorporate a live appearance by Biz Markie is a-ok by me. Even if I did see Biz's butt crack on the big screen, it was still awesome. Or maybe it was awesome because I saw Biz's butt crack? I swear in all my life I never imagined I'd be blogging about Biz's butt crack.
If your kids are Yo Gabba Gabba fans, and the show is coming anywhere near you, you won't want to miss the opportunity to see it live. We had a fabulous time. Until it was over, that is.
