|OMG They are REAL??|
She kept turning to my husband or myself and saying "The WIGGLES!" and pointing at the stage like she couldn't believe it. She danced and jumped for almost the whole concert and never lost interest (thank goodness the show was only 90 minutes).
When we got the tickets, we figured a Tuesday afternoon in October would be no problem, but then my husband had a briefing date get shifted which somewhat complicated our day. I picked up Faith from school and then proceeded to lose the argument about the order one should eat their lunch. She ate her whole lunch, but held that lollipop the entire time and ate it after she was done. So in a way, I guess she listened to me after all?
|Mommy, I NEED this lollipop to be able to enjoy this banana. Duh.|
We worked it out and managed to meet at a metro station so my husband could ditch his suit (shockingly, Wiggles concerts aren't formal wear friendly). I was so glad he was able to make it after all because he was able to carry Faith for me (in the non-stroller friendly metro areas). She's not light!
We arrived at the theater just as they were dimming the lights for the start of the show. It was funny being in the Warner Theater for this event because it's such a fancy, nice place and it was completely overrun with screaming children. You didn't need a watch to know when the show was almost over because you just started to notice that everyone was crying and fussy. I'm pretty sure that's not how most shows end at the Warner Theater.
For anyone who has a little Wiggles fan at home: the new "replacement" Wiggles were there and I have to say: they suck...pretty badly. The new red Wiggle sounds like he is a trained opera singer, which makes their ridiculous songs sound oddly fancy and he dances like he learned how yesterday. The new chick Wiggle can't sing for shit, but at least she can play the drums? The overall lesson here is that we're glad we saw the original Wiggles on their last tour.
Faith enjoyed the classic Wiggles songs the most and I got a little video of her dancing to "Rock a Bye Your Bear" and the "Itsy Bitsy Spider" song. My favorite part is how she insists that my husband does the dance moves too and constantly looks at him to check that he's not slacking:
Since Faith had school this morning, I was able to run before we had to leave for the concert. In retrospect I should have not run before doing something that required being on my feet for so long, but my brain still hasn't caught up on the news that my body is really fucking pregnant. Well, only 3-4 weeks to go, so this won't be an issue much longer. I still felt better off than the moms I saw at the concert today with toddlers and newborns.
What's the last concert you attended?
Are you like Faith and want your dessert with your meal, or are you more traditional about your meal order?
