Wild Women Do (Wiggle)

Went to The Wiggles concert this afternoon, partly because it’s the original group’s last tour before 75% of them retire, partly because Arddun really enjoys their music… and mostly because Dorothy the Dinosaur has a magical hold on her attention that I cannot understand.

Trying to demonstrate how steep the drop was between each row of seats at the AIS Arena. Not exactly a child-friendly venue. Especially a dancing, wriggly, fearless child. Also explains why I hardly took the time to record her groovin’.

Arddun, quietly (!) sitting on my lap and watching the concert most quizzically. She got pretty freaked out by the noise and the crowd when the concert first started, but eventually warmed up enough to dance and clap along.

You can just barely make out what’s going on (I think Santa and his crew are dancing on stage), but we actually had a fantastic view. Just no dance floor.

Quote of the day

“You need new hair.

Like my hair. My hair is brown, like my eyes. My eyes are brown, too. Our eyes are the same colour! You have a nose, and I have a nose. And I have a mouth and you too! We are the same!

But you need new hair.”
