My Name is Bruce. And I like to Dance.

Every morning is the same routine. The Bean wakes up. Brooke and I choose who is going to get up with her. Today it was me. "C'mon Bean, up," I say stumbling over to the crib. "Ouch my toe." Ouch my shin." And who would've thought I'd ever be able to change a diaper with my eyes closed. But waking up first does have its advantage. It's called Yo Gabba Gabba Yoooooooooo! The show is amazing. Or should I say acid trip. From the moment (LSD) DJ Lance enters the stark white background and places his boom box down, the magic begins. The funky music and far-out colors take over. Muno, Plex, Foofa, Toodee and Brobee jump out and shake their rainbow stuffed-animal moneymakers. The Bean jumps up and down applauding. I spin on my back break dancing.  I don't know who's more excited. "Go Bean, go, go, go Bean! My name is Bean and I like to dance." Together we experience the bond that a mother will never know. Unless of course, Brooke gets up and does the Robot.


  1. I was just reading your blog for the first time and I have to say I've cried and laughed out loud for the last twenty minutes!! Thank you for sharing your experiences. As a momma of a 7.5 month old, I'm about to go back to work and daddy's gonna be doing serious duty... I know he'll approach this time with humor like you have and this was a good reminder that they'll be fine! THANK YOU!

  2. Just found your blog and find it hillarious. I don't get Yo Gabba Gabba, it's weird but my daughter and husband LOVE IT. The other day I caught him watching it all by himself. When I called him out on it....he looked around for our daughter. Too funny that it is the same in your house hold.
