Baby Crack...

I think it's kinda scary and well...probably more like pathetic...that my life centers around the craziness known as Yo Gabba Gabba!

My daughter LOVESSSS this show. She asks for it by name. Well...it's more like "Gabba Gabba peas...Muno...Muno...Gabba Gabba!" It's not like I let her watch it for hours on end - but she has been exposed to it a lot during her short 18 months on this planet. Sniffle Sniffle at the realization AGAIN that she's 18 months.

Not only does she get to watch a show here and there...but because the show is so...well...addicting...she has Yo Gabba Gabba shirts, sweatshirts and toys. We are not the ones that usually buy the toys for her...but we realize that we play with them just as much as she does and we are glad she has them.

I find myself singing songs to her when I want her to behave. For example...trying to suction out her boogies from her nose. She has now started to REALLY REALLY despise this...but it must be done. So I sing to her "workin' together...suckin' your boogies...makin' it better...team work team work!" I learned this song (not the suckin' the boogies part) from the show - but hey...you can change the words to any song to suit your particular needs.

When she doesn't want to eat something...we try and sing to her about the party in her tummy. We explain milk wants to go to the party in her tummy. She usually just puts the cup up to her tummy and giggles. This morning she actually took a sip - then realized it was milk. LOL!

When she is exercising her lungs inside the Old Navy dressing room because she likes the sound of the echo...singing to her about her "inside voice...quietttt..." is another good song.

But this is what happens when you get two of the cutest girls EVER together and this show comes on...it's like crack...they just stop and stare...


I think Munchkin was looking a little grumpy from being bothered during her show...K didn't even notice pictures were being snapped! LOL!


If you haven't seen the show...if your kids don't know what it is all about...I would highly suggest it. In my opinion...it's the new Sesame Street!

Is it on Nickelodeon? Because we don't get Nick =( Or Noggin. Just Disney. Maybe I should track down a dvd and see if Xander is into it...because I am really getting tired of Caillou!

My Livie loves it, too, but she's terrified of that guy, Mark, the one that draws the pictures lol.

Okay...you've convinced me! I'm going to have to see if Catherine likes it. Sometimes I just need her to sit still for more than 30 seconds!

my daughter (5) literally goes deaf when the TV is on. I have to stand in front of the screen to get her attention. What the hell is it about that TV?

Yeah my kids are just memorized by that show...but I have to say...Sponge Bob is the baby crack. Not a good learning tool but it saves mama sanity!
