And a good time was had by all


I forgot my camera so we are going to have to make do with a cellphone camera picture.

On the way there, Sam was acting like a little prince and saying, "Take me to the Wiggles!" It was hilariously cute.

We all had a great time at the show. I cried, of course, just like I cried at the circus a couple weeks ago. It was right in the beginning of each show, when the expectation was finally realized and I felt that inevitable pang of two missing boys. But I was able to disguise it quickly and I don't think Sam even noticed. Hell, looking at his smiling face and watching him sing and dance nearly erased the sadness completely for that hour and a half of Wiggle magic.

And for the first time ever, Sam offered his unsolicited opinion on the way home, "Mommy, I had a great time tonight." I think he was particularly impressed by the fact that Greg's substitute as the yellow Wiggle was named Sam. Dreams of growing up and being a Wiggle danced in his head...and it made me and his dad smile.

It's so neat when kids get enraptured by something like that. His face just has a look of absolute bliss. These Wiggles must really be something!

I'm glad that Sam had such a good time, and I'm glad that he gave you a smile.

Great shot: wouldn't have known it was from a mobile (sorry, "cellphone") unless you'd mentioned it.

And it sounds like you had a great time.

Look at him! OMgosh, he is just the sweetest boy. :) Steve is a super sport, not sure I could get C.K. to go see the Wiggles (although he did go see The Bear in the Big Blue House).
