I blame it on Netflix

We don't always follow the "must-see TV" for children at our house. We've been without cable for years and even when we did have it, we never let it stay on Nickelodeon for very long. Consequently, we've often been the only parents of young children who remain blissfully unaware of Yo Gabba Gabba, while the other mommies & daddies in the room groan about the program their kids can't live without.

I actually think I deserve to get through the triplets' early childhood without having to endure that particular irritating kid favorite. After all, I already did Teletubbies, Barney, and Dragontales with Lotte - (Lala exceedingly painful, in fact). We even began to joke about how wonderful it was to have dodged the Gabba bullet. At least until yesterday.

Yesterday, Sunshine triplet was interested in the orange fuzzy thing on the streaming menu. It only took one program. And there it was, the dancing, the running, and a little girl enthralled. A tilted head, a finger pointing, a sweet voice with a smile says, "More Gabby, Gabby!"

Yes, we're doomed.


  1. I thought we'd be safe because we don't have cable. I never even thought about Netflix! Thankfully he is still a bit little to notice, but it doesn't take long!

  2. You're so right, it doesn't take long. Blink and they're grown they say. Well, I'd take blink and we're done with the Yo Gabba Gabba obsession :-)
