I went down for a late nap today - I was having too much fun playing in my crib to actually sleep. So when I finally woke up around 4:30, Mommy had a bad feeling about how my night might go. Uncle Jeff came over for dinner around 6 pm and I was perfectly content to sit in my high chair and drink a little Pepsi (little was about 2 cc's). Then while Daddy and Uncle Jeff were finishing up, Mommy turned on 'Yo Gabba Gabba' for me. (If you're not familiar with the show you should check it out at http://www.yogabbagabba.com/)
Yo Gabba Gabba was discovered in the Smith home after my parents saw it being made fun of on a show called The Soup that likes to make fun of other shows on TV. It is a very strange children's show with a man in an ugly orange outfit and five alien like creatures the come to life out of his boom box. One of the segments shows little kids dancing and they say, "My name is XXXX, I like to dance." For months now, my parents will say, "My name is Peyton, I like to dance" and I'll start dancing. It was just a little joke but Mommy stumbled across the show On-Demand the other morning and decided to see what I thought. To her surprise I wasn't terrified - I was fascinated! Now it is a morning staple and Lucille wasn't sure quite what to think. Now it was Uncle Jeff's turn to be introduced and he was similarly horrified!
After the fun of Yo Gabba Gabba I was raring to go and played hard with Jeff all night. My parents finally put me down to sleep at 8:30 but by 10:00 I was still awake and crying because I wanted out of my crib. Now was I awake because a)Yo Gabba Gabba b)Uncle Jeff or c)Pepsi? Hard to say at this point but a few minutes after my parents left me with my nurse, Carol I finally fell asleep.
