Let me start this off by saying, yet again, Vivien and I are not morning people. For some reason, Sesame Street just wasn’t on my radar. Maybe because it’s on PBS, and…well…I typically watch the “higher up channels” such as Bravo, E! and TLC. You know, the quality programming.
We went over to a friends house a couple weeks ago, and they had the Sprout channel on TV. That’s not included in our package, so I didn’t know that Sesame Street was a regular thing on the Sprout channel. Vivien had never seen S.S. before, and was watching it and dancing around to it like crazy. She loved it!
I really try not to let Vivien watch TV all day long
because however, I will typically flip it on before a nap time or when she’s eating lunch to “wind down.” She’ll sit and snuggle with me, and watch it for a bit. that’s my job,
So I found the PBS channel, and recorded the Sesame Street series, since let’s face it, I am not going to go out of my way to wake up at 9am and watch it. We sat down, and I flipped it on, and she loved it. And I noticed some odd (slightly famous?) guest stars.
Uhm, aren’t you supposed to be hanging out with Justin Timberlake practicing your SNL skits? Your mustache creeps me out. Like, I’d probably scream if I saw you talking to my kid.
Leonard?! You’re an experimental physicist, why are you talking to puppets?! Maybe you should have let Penny be on Sesame Street, and stop stealing all the thunder. She’s the actress want-to-be, you have a real job.
Am I just an idiot, and never realized before that slightly-famous people frequent Sesame Street? Honestly, I don’t think I’ve watched the show in a really long time (I don’t remember watching it with my nephew.)
Then I started wondering, what B list actors were on S.S. when I was little?!
Obviously, I’m over-thinking this program. She liked it. I was amused by it, so it was a win-win.
Do you allow your toddler to watch TV? What are their favorite shows?
