The Wiggles Go Bananas
When I was 18 I really liked a local band - the Cockroaches. They played at our school dance as well as us going and seeing them at various gigs when local indie music was popular in Sydney pubs. DH was in the school band - so he was the supporting act when they played in our school hall.
Years later they morphed into the Wiggles - and I couldn't wait to have children so I could go see them. Last year was the brats first Wiggles concert and they really liked it. They liked it even more this year. It was fantastic concert - so much fun. We were able to meet and greet the guys beforehand. Hannah ahd a drawing that she wanted to give to Murray. He was lovely and asked her about writing her name on it. Kit did a blue Mr Men style drawing for Anthony - he is holding it in the photo above.
As a 'special needs mama' I really love the Wiggles - they routinely and without fuss but very deliberately include kids with disabilities in everything they do - in their videos, at their meet and greets etc. They are fantastic guys and great role models. If only my DH could do the splits like that - we are about the same vintage as the Wiggles - but I couldn't see him on the gymnastics cube like that!!lol.
