I Just Don't Get It

I don't know if any of you have heard of the television show "Yo Gabba Gabba", but my youngest daughter watches it as if the characters are religious icons. She's sitting on my living room couch, with her mouth practically hanging open (wait... it that a trail of drool hanging from the corner of her mouth?? ;)

Another thing that makes me scratch my head and say "What the heck is THAT all about??"

Here's a small example of this complete and utter foolishness:

Yo Gabba Gabba is wierd.

Currently I'm lucky, my boys much prefer the Upside Downside Show. Now that is fun watching them act along with!

So, I'm reading your post below about pea soup for air and my 2 year old points to the unmoving youtube square and says, "Yo Ga Ba Ga Ba!

the Bishop in my ward, his brother in law is one of the creators oF Yo Gabba. Gracie the little girl with long hair is my bishops daughter. I have never really seen it and that is because Ryan and Summer don't really care to watch it, they like Chowder, Flapjack, and Edgar and Ellen. It's funny though they say they don't like the Disney stuff however boy we see a lot of Disney......Happy 4th C.

As a footnote to this posting... my little one came over to me as I was sitting at the computer, posting one of my later entries yesterday. She saw the "Yo Gabba Gabba" screen, pulled her pint-sized chair up to the desk, stood up on it, and asked me to play the video for her. THREE TIMES.

I swear, there's subliminal messages in those episodes. After she was satisfied with her viewing experience, she began to eat her dinner that had been sitting there for HOURS, all the while singing, "There's a party in my tummy"..!!!!

Hey, I'm all for it, as long as the messages are positive, like "Clean up your room", "eat all of your vegetables", or "go brush your teeth". It's when I see my 3-year-old wielding a steak knife and looking like the Bride of Chuckie that I'm gonna have a problem! :)
