So no, I didn't feel out of place when I skipped over to Will Call to get my ticket. My almost-two-year-old Jah looked bewildered when I told him we were going to watch "Yo Gabba Gabba" and yet I didn't turn on the TV (instead ushering him into the car), so I'm pretty sure he had no idea what was going on. Still, from the moment the lights went out and the orange-clad DJ Lance Rock whistled onto the stage, Jah -- like every other kid in the venue-- was transfixed.

So maybe music was a little bit too loud (or maybe I'm just too old?), and the bubbles and the confetti shooting out of the stage didn't reach our seats, and there was really no space to dance, but it made me feel a little less weird to see all these parents heartily singing the words to "Party in My Tummy," the same way I do at home. And I had a lot of fun. A LOT. It was much more enjoyable than the last 10 for-adults shows I've seen, if only because the sight of my son having fun at a concert was so precious.
