My wife and I took my two year old daughter Abbey. She loves KISS, and can sing a handful of songs and really enjoys watching their concerts on DVD. Well apparently the real life KISS scares the pants off of her!! It was super funny, and sad at the same time. But when my wife took Abbey up to get their group picture with the guys, Abbey started to fuss and when she got right in front of them started to cry... Gene being the nice guy that he is reached out his hand and touched her arm to comfort her. Abbey took one look at him and screamed like her little world was going to come to an end!!! The whole room busted into laughter, Gene looked embarrassed and Eric and Paul were saying something like, "Gene!! Your mean, you made her cry."
So now my wife, Mandy took Abbey off the side of the photo area to try to calm her down. And while I was walking up to get my picture taken with KISS, Tommy reached over to see if Abbey was alright... Abbey saw him coming and cried, "Tommy No!" LOL
We then took Abbey to the back of the room and sat on the couch while everyone one else got their pictures done. We half expected her to freak out, and adding to the the visual image of KISS in the same room with our little girl, it was incredibly hot, she didn't have a proper nap, and we just got done with a seven hour car ride a few short hours earlier.
My wife went into mom mood the rest of the meet and greet and sat with abbey on the couch, while I went and mingled with the guys (boy, did I marry the right girl, or what?)
Eric wound up standing in front on Mandy(my wife) and Abbey, and once Abbey fell asleep Eric turned and started to talking to Mandy about our daughter and seemed very concerned for them, which was VERY VERY NICE. At one point my wife's talking woke our daughter up, she took one look at Eric and started crying again.
Because of Abbey's little scene, I ended up talking to all the guys about my daughter and my other daughter that's due in November. Also, everyone commented on my HTH tattoo, Gene and Eric even said it was the best one they have seen. I also "asked favors" from Tommy and Gene, and asked if I could just touch their costumes... Tommy thought this was funny and Gene said he may bite depending on were, but both of them let me touch. I made sure to shake Paul's hand like six times.
It all went really quick for 30-40 minutes. It only could have been better if my daughter didn't freak out. At least it makes a good story. LOL
But overall, I loved it! Totally worth the money for me, and I would do it again in a heartbeat..
** I attached a couple photos of my meet and greet picture, my new kiss tattoo, and the picture of my daughter we got autographed.
