Sesame Street Live: Elmo Grows Up

Last Thursday, my youngest son Carson, and I went into Manhattan to see "Elmo Grows Up" at Madison Square Garden. After what turned out to be quite possibly my longest drive ever into the Big Apple (3 hours, the traffic was dreadful) we got to see all the adorable Sesame Street Monsters sing and dance their way into adulthood.

As they prepare for a pageant on Sesame Street, the furry, feathered friends are asking, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Now I don't know about you, but I'm a wee bit envious of the Sesame Street characters and their timeless appearances. No one ever ages on that show! Something tells me Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster and the gang will always be ageless, but it's nice to think of them getting older (yet wiser) along with the rest of us. I'm not at all bitter, really I'm not :o)

The show includes a valuable lesson that if children believe in themselves and are willing to try, the possibilities are endless. My husband and I do our hardest to instill this in our boys each and every day. Carson and I thoroughly enjoyed the show ~ Carson especially loved seeing "Melmo" in person. If you have a little one who loves spending their mornings with the Sesame Street gang, I definitely recommend this show. Visit the Sesame Street Live site to see when these furry monsters are coming to your area.

  • I grew up with Sesame Street and I think it was one of the best TV shows ever made. Big bird and Kermit, Burt and Ernie were all favorites when I was growing up. But I never liked Elmo. The character just seemed pretty poor compared to the others. Yes, my friends, Elmo is boring. Sorry. I know this will offend some of Elmo fans out there but it's the truth. I regularly keep up to date with kids websites such as www.DozenKids.com, where Sesamestreet's website was ranked as the top E-Learning. Well deserved.
