In a world of "E's"

If it's not Exodus it's Elmo. Seriously, how many times can one enjoy "Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland" before they are reduced to a babbling shell of what they once were? Padded cell anyone? Sign me up! I am sure there is a waiting list of mothers of two year olds just waiting to escape the Elmo world their children wish to live in. I woke up singing "it's all about your point of view, in life it's all about your point of view." Sung by the "Queen of Trash" in the aforementioned flick.

The thing is, it's a seriously cute movie if you don't have to watch it 3 times a day. Yes, I know, the parenting Nazi's can gasp with horror at this fact, but sadly it's true. Call me crazy, but even at three times a day it's still easier to listen to Mandy Patinkin sing than screams of "ELMO BLANKET BACK NOW!" all day long. OY!

I used to have this thing on my computer where Oscar the Grouch would sing, "Oh IIII, Loooove Traaash!" whenever you threw something away.

I love Jim Hensen's creations... but my kid can't see the T.V. yet, so I'll reassess when she's two.

I really do LOVE the movie it's so cute, but, like they say, too much of a good thing, is still too much! HA!

Sesame street is really the only show they have any interest in watching (thank goodness). There really is something about those characters and puppets that appeal to children.
