Everything I learned in life...I learned from The Wiggles

I have spent a lot of time lately watching The Wiggles with my nieces, and let me just tell you, there are so many wonderful life lessons to be learned from The Wiggles. In fact, I have come to believe that if we incorporated some of their ways, we would be much happier people! Here are just a few fascinating things I have learned from The Wiggles...

1. Sometimes stopping to smell the roses in life is just not enough. Dorothy the dinosaur has figured out that just smelling the roses is just not adequate, to reap the full benefit of the roses, you must eat them. I appreciate a gal who knows when to just dig in…literally.

2. It is okay to sing about your favorite foods. In fact, I think it should be a requirement. Sometimes singing about food just makes it taste better. I mean, seriously, doesn’t fruit salad, crunchy munchy honey cakes, mashed bananas and cold spaghetti just taste better when humming a catchy song while eating it? Perhaps I need a jingle for turkey sandwiches…turkey sandwiches…yummy, yummy!

3. Can’t find anything to wear? The Wiggles have taught me that primary colored turtlenecks can really be fashionable. And who says you can’t wear the same thing day after day? Heck, when you find something that works…don’t change it!

4. Driving in traffic and bored…why not try singing “Toot, Toot, Chugga, Chugga?” I tried it the other day while driving home from work and I must say it made my drive much more fun and enjoyable.

5. You know…when you are happy…what is wrong with giving a cheerful finger-wagging? I mean really…can’t you just imagine the joy it would bring to your co-workers to be given two perky finger-guns to show your appreciation or approval? Who wouldn’t love that?

Now...get out there and spread some perkiness.


  1. lol is this show still on. lmao. I love the spaghetti song and the banana song. It's been a while since my sons watched this show as he is 9 now. I remember when they would come out to the area and do shows. time goes by so fast.

  3. HAHA finger wagging! I have an almost 3 year old and she never really got into the Wiggles which I always thought was great but secretly I was really craving some toot toot chugga chugga! :) I do agree though, life could be more cheerful following these simple rules!

  4. We just had fruit salad yesterday and I couldn't get that song out of my head. Fruit salad, yummy, yummy! Thank you Wiggles! :)

  5. oh wow. lol. I often find myself singing the fruit salad song...unfortunately now is one of those times!
