Oh the Wiggles
Yes, Calebs nine year obsession continues
Many people make fun of and dislike the Wiggles
But I could never hate these four men who have brought such joy to my boy over the years!
One particular memory is when he woke up at 4 a.m. in the hospital after having a pretty rough surgery, and I couldn't calm down, medication didn't even help, but I brought out his Wiggles video and he calmed right down. I could never thank them enough for what they have done. Their videos work when nothing else will.
When I saw they were coming in concert again, I knew we had to go.
I didn't know what his reaction was going to be, but he was really good. He especially loved the old "classics" and got really excited. But when they sang some of the other songs he just listened to his Wiggles radio.
The Wiggles put on a pretty fun show. I noticed there were a lot of kids there with special needs, music really speaks to their souls and I think the Wiggles are very aware of that. I am sure it is very tiring to perform a show for kids day after day. But watching them during some of the songs as they went out into the crowd, they would spend so much time with the kids, epecially those with special needs.
There is nothing I wouldn't do to try and bring a little joy and laughter into Caleb's life, and that includes watching four grown men sing and dance their hearts out!!
