Happy Birthday Sesame Street

This week marks the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street. I've been showing the kids clips on Youtube of the original Sesame Street bits, and this one is definitely our favorite. The kids laugh hysterically and then beg to watch it again. And now, whenever Campbell sings the ABCs, someone yells "Cookie Monster" at random intervals, which drives Campbell insane. "Dat's not how da song goes," he yells, while we all laugh.

Don't laugh but I've caught Clare watching it early on Friday mornings . . her work at home day! Some kids never get over Sesame Street!

Adorable. Hard to believe that I grew up on Sesame Street and kids are still watching it today.

Aww! Can't wait to make DuckyBoy watch that bit!! Think I could go get him out of school for it?

Wanted to come back and let you know DuckyBoy liked it too -- despite his initial skepticism! And now it's in our "recently viewed" section on YouTube, and I heard him listen to it by himself this morning, the whole thing! I bet he doesn't even know why. Joey's little giggle is just irresistible.
