Most of the time when we mention Yo Gabba Gabba to friends, they look at us like we are crazy. But there are a few friends with younger kids that are crazed for Gabba too. Gabba is like a cult. Once you start watching, you are hooked and you gravitate toward other Gabba lovers! And the thing about Gabba lovers is that they share the love.
We have been the lucky recipients of some great Gabba love. My girlfriend Shauna (yep, you got it - friends since Kinder. boo-ya!) sent Wyatt a BOX FULL of Gabba clothes that her son Grey had outgrown.
Grey is the original Gabba fan. He was watching the show before there was merchandise and his awesome momma was making him homemade Gabba clothes.
It is pretty safe to say that Wyatt has worn Gabba shirts non-stop for the last few months. The hand me downs from Grey have become his only acceptable clothing. We are so thankful that Shauna thought of us when sending such a special care package.
Then last week I was fretting about the fact that Yo Gabba Gabba Live was coming to our city and we opted not to pay the $50 per ticket to see the show. (Really, 2 weeks before Christmas you are gonna charge that crazy amount to attend a children's show?!?! Gah!)
I saw on facebook that my friend Sharon was also feeling the same frustration about the cost of the show. I commented on her status that we were in the same boat and went about my business of trying not to be bummed that Wyatt wasn't going to get to see the show.
And then out of the blue on Friday night, I got a call from Sharon that she had scored 4 FREE tickets to the show and they invited me and Wyatt to join them.
OMG!! I thought I was gonna D.I.E. No way! Get out of town!
So Sharon and her sweet boy Daniel came over and picked us up and we were on our way.
Wyatt was thrilled. From the moment we walked into the performance center, he was busting with excitement!
As every character came on the stage, he was screaming their names! He danced and sang along and had the very very best time ever.
What an incredibly kind thing for Sharon to do for our boy. He hasn't stopped talking about it all weekend. He has been wearing his DJ Lance paper glasses every single day. (Thank goodness I went back into the arena and picked up 4 more pairs from the floor.)
Thank you Shauna and Sharon for showing our boy so much Gabba love. We are so thankful for you both.
Showing kindness to the people around you is such a gift. I just hope that I can do something nice for someone that crosses my path and make them feel as special as you have made us feel.
