The happiest kid alive

family with Muno from Yo Gabba Gabba

I have been keeping a secret from Lily for almost FOUR WHOLE MONTHS. This is huge. I am a terrible secret-keeper. And she is so especially curious.

But it worked. I didn’t blow it.

And yesterday afternoon I got to experience for the first time how amazing it feels to surprise my kid. Like, really surprise her.

We took her to Yo Gabba Gabba Live.

At first she was overwhelmed by the loud music, flashing lights and “real” Gabba friends on stage (“Where’s the TV, Mommy?”). She is terribly afraid of mascots of any kind and has been known to run from the Chick-Fil-A cow (unlike mommy, who accosts the cow for coupons). But once she settled into my lap and took everything in, she grew so happy that her jaw hung open almost the entire time.

And boy, did we dance.

I won’t spoil it for those of you who might be planning to go. So here are just a couple of photos of the awesomeness.

We finished our little date with pizza and jello at Lily’s favorite restaurant.

  1. Awesome!

  2. Yo Gabba Gabba live is so awesome! I took my daughter last year and we are going again in ten days! Every single person she has come in contact with for the past three weeks or so has been informed that she will be going to Yo Gabba Gabba (lots of blank stares from non-toddler parents). I love the picture with all the confetti raining down.

  3. We took Jackson to see this show last month & had a blast! The first few minutes were a little iffy, though. He wasn’t crazy about the show opening with stuff flying out of the ceiling, haha. But he got over it.

  4. soooo special!!!
