Wiggles 2008.

Milly and I along with a close girlfriend and her 3 year old son went to the Wiggles last Thursday! I realized it has been our 4th show, once a year we have been, every time they come to Perth. We may have moved on the Princess stuff and watch Shrek and Madagascar more on telly that their DVD's but they are still fantastic live.


Left Grace at school, I think she's too old for them, but Milly is the perfect age to get up and dance. She had no qualms at leaving us standing at the side and wandering up to the toddler mosh pit where she'd alternate being clapping and staring! See her above on the very left in the pink top? Look how close she got!

They always do a song where they go out to the crowd. It all happened quickly and Jeff was all of a sudden there in front of us, and I got flustered and didn't get the lense cap off my camera and the right settings set in time so I got this shot as as he walked past. Typical! See Milly in the back following him? The blurred pink top? Classic!

Now here is my favourite Wiggle! Well he's not technically a Wiggle.... Ben, the Wiggly Dancer! Watching him do his crazy wacky energetic dances leaping over the place, made watching Wiggle Bay 1,000,000,000 times bearable in those early days when we discovered them. It was the only DVD we had for awhile! Anyway, I think he's fantastic, I'll admit, I am a fan, he's great! So when he walked our way, I had my camera ready and my girlfriend took this photo. As he approached talking to the kids and collecting roses for Dorothy, I said "Excuse me Ben, would you mind if I got a photo with you?" If he was suprised that it was a Mum that wanted a shot without a child in tow, he didn't let on! He said "Sure!" Photo was taken, I said "Thanks so much, we think your fantastic in our house." and he said "That's great! Thanks so much" and then he touched the middle of my back as he moved away to collect more roses from the kids. And then I couldn't stop giggling for the next 10 minutes.

I love the Wiggles live! I've only been once, probably will be the only time, people don't usually come back here. I had a blast when we went. Ben's my favorite too, he's so cute

Helen you can never wash oyur back again. I must admit we are not a Wiggly house although we are going to the Sydney concert courtesy of some complimentary tickets.

Oh I am jealous! My heart even skipped a beat when you said Ben touched your back ! I love Ben. I used to love Anthony, and then it was Captain Feathersword, but now I have moved on to Ben. I am fickle I know, but I like to think of it as sharing around the wiggly love rather than being some kind of wiggly groupie, LOL.

Gosh - we've nearly outgrown The Wiggles in this house, though we did see them live once - I guess it was probably when DD1 was about 3. She's 11 now. Which doesn't mean I've forgotten the lyrics yet, though. Toot toot, beep beep -big red car!
