...that almost every single morning, I wake up with some crazy song from Yo Gabba Gabba in my head? It may even be from an episode that we haven't watched in weeks.
Folks, I promise you, the nugget DOES NOT watch a lot of TV. He watches one episode of "his show" to settle down and cuddle in my lap before nap. That's it.
But THIS SHOW. It sticks with me. All the live long day and night. And apparently, it's so deeply rooted in my subconscious that it's the first thing my brain conjures up as I stumble out of bed, sleepy eyed, each morning.
Some of my favorite gems:
"There's a party in my tummy! SO YUMMY! SO YUMMY!" ~ to teach us the importance of trying new foods and eating healthy snacks
"All My Friends Are Bugs" ~performed by none other than Weezer, to teach us not to be afraid of insects
"Jumpy jump jump jump jump. Jumpy jump jump JUMP JUMP!" ~ to teach us that jumping is fun?
And then, there's the ever popular (and completely weird) segment Biz's Beat of the Day. The "Biz" we're referring to is- you guessed it- Biz Markie. To teach kids how to beatbox poorly? My favorite is the beat in the "Sick" episode. Hold on to your hats, peeps, because this one will blow you away- "Give-a-give-a-GET. Wicka-wicka-WELL." What a genius. Truly inspired.
If you are a mommy friend, maybe you feel my pain? Or am I the only one who is cursed with the constant barrage of stoner*/kiddie tunes streaming on repeat through my mind?
*The kiddies are not stoners, no. But the people behind this show most certainly are. For reals.
