Watch It Wiggle

I've recently discovered one of the hidden benefits of fatherhood.  The Sprout Channel.  It's geared to younger children with shows I like, like The Goodnight Show, The Sharing Show, and The Sunnyside Up Show.  Educational, fun, and Sabrina loves it.

They also show The Wiggles.  It plays in the background while I do her hair or make breakfast.  Until  I took a closer look at the "Blue" Wiggle, Anthony. 


I sat down to get a better look.  He's captivating.  That smile just lights up his face.  Great cheekbones and whoa--he's Australian?  Australian men are very sexy.  The way he moves while he's dancing...I'm hooked.  I find myself watching the clock in the morning, waiting for Wiggle Time.  Sabrina had to learn to give herself a bottle because my attention was on Anthony and his dance moves.  That Yellow and that Red Wiggle keep trying to upstage him, but they can't hold a candle! 

All of this was fine until today, when I realized my obsession with Anthony was, well creepy.  Here's poor Anthony trying to entertain and educate kids, and me watching him thinking what beautiful music we could make together.  I'm sure he gets tons of fan mail, so I'm not worried he hasn't returned my letters or acknowledged my 1-800-FLOWERS gifts.  But I think it's time to change the channel.  It just seems wrong to be learing at the guy that's making my kid smile.  And so, in a world populated by Purple Dinosaurs and giant 6 foot tall canary birds, the bright spot that was the Blue Wiggle will have to fade away.  I'm sorry Anthony, but it's for the good of the children.

Plus there's always BET and the Wendy Williams Show.  How YOU doin'?

LOL. I have been a fan of Anthony's and the Wiggles way before they were the Wiggles and they were a normal rock band call the Cockroaches.

Dont feel bad and dont turn off I am sure you are not the only person doing it.

LOL! This cracked me up. Kayla used to watch that show on Noggin but they dont play it on there anymore and its no longer called Noggin, its now Nick Jr which is weird because they dont play any of the Nickelodeon shows, its all preschool, educational shows. Anyhow...you made me laugh.

haha! You crack me up! Do you think Anthony is gay? I don't know why but my gaydar is sounding....

I don't think its creeping that the man you are learing at is the one also making your daughter smile because doesn't Gregg make your daughter smile? Don't you think of Gregg in dirty ways too? lol

Anyways... there is always Dora the Explorer, my niece LOVES Dora... and it will teach Sabrina spanish too!

My god, Sprout saves my morning. The Wiggles are now the favorite at our house. I can't get the song "Hot Potato" out of my head. Ah, I also have an obsession. Look what I found on youtube. Anthony is a hottie.
