Just missed a classic moment in kiddie rock.. Greg the Yellow Wiggle quits

Mr4 has an orientation afternoon at his new school this afternoon, and Mr9-next-week has one tomorrow. Otherwise, I would have had a lot of explaining to do.

The fifth wiggle? Mr-then-7 even had the yellow shirt.

For the last couple of years, we joined the pilgrimage of parents and kids worshipping at the alter of The Wiggles for their annual concert in Perth. If we'd been there this morning, we would have been part of kiddie rock history. Greg Page, the Yellow Wiggle, announced he's quitting the group due to health problems.He has a condition called Orthostatic intolerence, which Dr Kathryn understands is "falling over when you stand up".

The official announcement states that understudy, Sam Moran, will take his place. I'm imagining an update of The Red Shoes called The Yellow Skivvy.

After hearing that Steve Irwin had died the day before we visited the Australia Zoo, and then the Big Red car breaking down in the middle of the Wiggle's house at Dreamworld, I'm kind of glad we weren't there, or we would have felt strangely responsible.

(Honestly, these are randomly selected from over 100 cards)
