Last month we took CJ to a super special surprise. He had no idea where we were going. He probably just assumed we were going to Nana's house. We drove over to the Lowell Auditorium in Lowell MA. We managed to keep CJ from noticing the giant tour bus that would give away our secret. When we entered, there were balloons and toys and lots of souvenirs starring all of his favorite characters. We got him to his seat and then Dada went to go get him a surprise - a stuffed Bert and Ernie. CJ was content to watch all of the kids around him and snuggle with his new toys.
Then... his mind was BLOWN! He heard Big Bird's voice! He jumped on his chair and was looking around saying "ig ird! ig ird!!" Then the curtain came up and Ernie was there - "Nie! Nie!!"
Suffice it to say that Sesame Street Live was a hit with CJ. He could not sit down. He literally stood on his chair the entire time. (Don't worry, he is short and there was no one behind him.) He was yelling at the actors on stage "More, more!" When they would come out into the audience, it took all of our strength to keep him from dive-bombing people to get to them.
The show itself was actually really fun. It is all about healthy eating and healthy living. Poor Super Grover has lost his super-ness because he isn't taking care of himself. All of the characters teach him about eating properly, getting enough rest, etc. The show was entertaining to me as an adult, so obviously the kiddies loved it. So if Sesame Street Live is coming to your town, CJ and I definitely recommend that you go. They will love you forever. As you can see from the picture, I am officially the mom of the year.
