"Why are you watching Yo Gabba Gabba?"

It's a question I've been asking myself a lot lately. After I tuck my son to sleep, after my wife nods off, I find myself firing up the DVR for Yo Gabba Gabba! This is the loudest, most exuberant show on TV right now. I don't know how my family manages to sleep through it.

So this morning when CDubs let out one of his fortissimo toddler screams as I was trying to get him dressed, I thought I'd try turning some Gabba rays on him. Guess what? It completely immobilized him. This is some powerful stuff.

And was I ever ready when my wife asked, "Why are you watching this?"

"It's got Mark Mothersbaugh from Devo. Mates of State have a song in this one. They have animations where kids get to act like Pitfall Harry. Plus there are good moral messages such as 'Don't bite your friends.'"

These kids are with me...
