Happy birthday, Sesame Street!

Thank you, Sesame Street, for providing entertaining and educational quality programing for the past 40 years. I enjoyed growing up watching Big Bird, Grover, Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie and the gang, and I love that my kids can still enjoy them (and other lovable characters) today. Unlike other shows on television (even on PBS which is the only station my kids watch), I know I can always trust Sesame Street. I often find myself wanting to watch it too. (I can’t say the same about other kids’ shows.) 😉 This is one show I hope never goes off the air.

Happy 40th birthday, Sesame Street. Here’s to 40 more years!

Ava says, this post has been brought to you by the letter Q and the number 5. She would also like to share that her favorite character on Sesame Street is Zoe. Julian’s favorite is Slimey the Worm. 🙂

  1. I had a copier jam yesterday that was brought to me by the letter 5. No kidding, there was a plastic 5 in the machine. How it got there? Ask The Count!

  2. I ,too, am so grateful to Sesame Street and happy that it was there back in 1975 when you born. I know it helped all three of you grow up to be readers, writers and smart kids (genetics and reading to you every night probably helped also).And I’m glad that Ava and Julian are able to benefit from it. Thanks to Jim Henson and may he rest in peace.

  3. I love Sesme Street. Funny story, I went on a rant with my sister in law, who teaches high school English about how I HATE that Elmo doesn’t use pronouns. I know that Elmo is supposed to be 3 and 3 year olds don’t use pronouns but I know several todddlers who refuse to use prouns because of Elmo. Anyway, she recently told me that her son who apparently heard my rant, pointed out one day that Elmo used “it” on Sesme Street and he used a pronoun. His mom was so proud that he correctly identified and used the term pronoun. So I guess in a round about way, I have to thank Elmo for that.
