Seriously... Tonight, after a long, busy day, The Princess DEMANDED that I turn on "gabba gabba gabba gabba." Too tired to fight this battle, I turned it on. Immediately, fingers in her mouth and ear twisting like crazy, she settled down to stare dazedly at the television with a half-smile pasted on her face. The only times she moved where when I put her down and she curled up to put her head on my lap. Not a peep was heard... It was peacefully eery.
I don't know what it is, exactly, about this show that children like mine find appealing. It is strange and psychedelic and resembles something that might have come from the 1970s, but Princess thinks this is the cream of the crop of what is on television these days. I guess I'll take the 20 minutes or so of peace it affords me, but really... Yo Gabba Gabba?!!!
