158 Yo Gabba Gabba: More Help Than Yo' Self Can Handle
I used to be afraid of bugs.
I used to have trouble falling asleep.
I used to have trouble sharing items with friends.
Then I started watching Yo Gabba Gabba and I didn't have any more troubles.
The New York Public Library carries Yo Gabba Gabba's series of music compilations entitled Music is Awesome, and who could argue, Music is Awesome. Songs like "I Like Bugs" helped me appreciate the creepy in our crawly cohabitators of the earth. "Don't Bite Your Friends" helped me understand that when you disagree with your friend that you should use your mouth for talking things out, not biting. The song "Get the Sillies Out" helped me realize I misdiagnosed my restless leg syndrome.
If you help yo'self to some Gabba Gabba you might just find earth an easier place to live. At the very least you may find yourself humming one of the songs.
Disclaimer: I never really had trouble falling asleep or sharing items with friends, and I only have a mild intolerance to bugs. This post was to note that I enjoy watching Yo Gabba Gabba with my son and if he ever does a Google search with my name in the future maybe he will find this post. I don't actually believe that Dr. Phil has to worry about the Yo Gabba Gabba crew overtaking his afternoon TV slot but I do believe that we can all remember what we forgot about life's simple lessons with some help from the Yo Gabba Gabba crew.
