And the blue one too! Cookie Monster was my favorite growing up on Sesame Street, where I learned to read by the age of 3. My Savannah is crazy about both of them.
Sesame Street Live presents 1-2-3 Imagine With Elmo & Friends at Mohegan Sun Arena for several shows starting Thursday, March 1st through Sunday, March 4th. Tickets are still available, and babies under age 1 don't need a ticket.
I know this because we brought Savannah last year at age 10 months. She wasn't even walking yet, I remember walking around the arena with her in a front-carrier. We took our seats and her Daddy had her in his lap as the show started. Once the music started playing and Elmo, Abby and the other muppets came out on stage, my baby started rocking out! I yelled at her father -- I thought he was bouncing her on his knee and she was going too fast, I thought she would fly off his lap. "It's not me, it's her!" He put her on my lap, and it was all I could do to hold on! The kid was banging her head like she was at a Motley Crue show back in the day! Big smile on her face.
I can't wait to bring her back this year. We're going Sunday, the last show at 4:30pm. She'll be just up from her nap and full of energy. I hope she doesn't rush the stage!
I will be introducing Elmo and all his Sesame friends at that 4:30pm Sunday show. I've been looking forward to it. it's so much fun hanging out backstage with the actors. Click here to hear my interview with Elmo & Cookie:
WANNA WIN A 4-PACK OF TICKETS??? Of course you do! Just text ELMO to 3-4-2-3-5 and we'll enter you into the drawing at noon on Thursday, March 1st. You can use the tickets that night if you want, or for any of the other shows through Sunday.
