Sunny Days, Sweepin' the Clouds Away...by Samantha
Mama is old!
But not as old as Sesame Street!
Sesame Street is so old today that Mama says she watched it as a little girl.
I asked her how she could find time to watch it when she was running from the dinosaurs!
That's because I think she's so old.
One of Mama's favorite birthday's was sharing a Cookie Monster cake with her Grandma Dodie. They smeared blue, cookie monster frosting on their teeth.
Probably to distract the dinosaurs.
Since Mama was a little girl, Sesame Street has grown to be broadcast in 140 countries. AND it was one of the first shows to talk about and feature kiddos in wheelchairs, with hearing impairments or other disabilities. That's right, Big Bird's focus has been on tolerance, empathy, inclusion and what us kiddos can do to make the world a better place.
Perhaps grown ups should be watching Sesame Street with me?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SESAME STREET!!!!
