So I’ve been in the Wiggles world for a while now. Anyone with kids younger than 10 has probably heard of them, but for those of you who don’t know, the Wiggles are a kids musical group from Australia that sing about all sorts of things–getting strong, eating healthy, plus silly stuff. They have a regular TV show and have many, MANY videos (I think we have them all). Their music is very catchy and I must admit that they are a guilty pleasure for me as well.
So, when we found out the Wiggles were coming for a show in Tucson, I was SO excited. I knew that this would be fulfilling a lifelong dream for Taylor, and for many of you parents out there, I’m sure you can relate to my own excitement of being able to fulfill that dream. We waited 2 long months from when we received the ticket til the night of the show. It was extra special because Nana was going to be with us as well. She came to visit us over her spring break and we were able to include her on the big adventure.
The big night had finally come. Taylor had been talking about this for 2 months. I thought she was going to explode from excitement. And from the moment the show started. Tears. From Taylor.
Taylor: “Um, you know what, I don’t like this very much.”
Me: “Taylor! Look there’s Anthony standing right next to you!”
Me: “Oh wow! Your favorite song!” (overexaggeratting my own excitement)
Taylor: “I think I’ve had enough of the Wiggles tonight. After this song we should go.”
Me: “Are you sure? There’s Dorothy! There’s Wags! Can you believe the Wiggles are right there?”
Taylor: “Lets go.”
Who knew her dislike for loud noises would outweigh seeing her “favorite guys in the world”.
Show tickets: $100
new dress: $30.00
bone for Wags: $4.50
markers, posterboard, paint: $7.95
Leaving the show 30 minutes in (but realizing you’ll never have to drop money like this for a live show again): Priceless.
