Zoe watches a lot of Sesame Street, both on the TiVo and online. She’s a little obsessed. The joke Gramps makes is to call it Obsessame Street. She knows all the characters and has favorite clips in her online profile. If you had told me my under two year old would watch television at all, I would have told you she MIGHT watch an episode of Street here and there, certainly not every day, and certainly not online, too. Kids do change everything. Plus with a few rare exceptions (Mr. Noodle! – does he give anyone else the heebies?), it’s quality programming, and I think she learns from it.

Zoe doesn’t watch it alone. Her Dad and I both grew up on Sesame Street, and though there are many new aspects, some of the older clips are interspersed. It’s a good trip down memory lane. In my day there were more Muppets proper; Jim Henson’s passing has meant less Kermit and other classic Street characters, and their replacements leave a little something to be desired in my book. But not in Zoe’s. “Melmo” captivates her. I didn’t even know there was a Zoe monster until after we decided on our daughter’s name.

Anyway I have my favorites now, too. I love when celebrities come to visit Sesame Street. The catchier songs stick in my head, and I find myself singing them during the day. Some examples: Destiny’s Child sing about walking, Feist sings about counting to four, and my favorite: Chris Brown and Elmo sing about signs. Try not to get it stuck in your head. I dare you not to dance at least a little.

What can I say - it's really catchy!
