Ah, The Wiggles…the 4-man children’s singing group along with Captain Feathersword, Dorothy the DInosaur, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus hail from Australia but they might as well live next door because that’s how much I see them. Charlotte LOVES their show and it’s all we watch or listen to when the kids are with us. We DVR every episode on the main floor and basement TVs… and we just added a DVR to our upstairs TV to start a season recording up there, too! You see at 5:15 in the morning when Charlotte wants to watch “Wigs”, as we call it, I would like to be able to turn them on without doing much beyond reaching for the remote with one eye open. The scary part is I find myself singing, “Toot, toot, chugga, chugga, big red car” around the office. An even scarier fact, Dave and I discuss the show like commentators on Meet the Press. He’s convinced Greg was forced out when Sam (yellow shirt) came in this season. I told him I would see what I could find on-line about it. We both agree Anthony (blue shirt) is the best dancer but the addition of Sam has made it a close call. Charlotte was not at all interested in anything on TV until she discovered them. Thomas has watched Charlotte dance around so much when they’re on, he gets excited about it. He even whines when the songs end or Wags and Dorothy aren’t on. So I rewind it for him. I know, we’re a little nuts at our house. I have two Wiggles CDs in my car, Dave has one and Nana/Papa have one or two plus a DVD with a portable player. They DVR all the episodes for Charlotte, too. I even have a favorite back-up dancer and told Dave last week that Anthony played the part of Old Dan Tucker perfectly during one song. At that point, he did question my sanity. It gets worse. My mom has talked about flying Charlotte to a city on the concert tour because The Wiggles don’t appear to be coming to a town near us any time soon.
