We gave my grandson Landon an Elmo for Christmas. Frankly, it was because I was looking for a doll that had laces, ties, buttons, buckles…we had a clown like that when my kids were little. Most of the help-me-learn dolls were kind-of funky looking, so I settled on Elmo. Landon likes him. He’s a little young for the help me part of him, but he’ll grow into that.
He also likes this little guy, who I really like, too, made for him by cousin-in-law Jenna, who is uber-crafty….
Landon’s Little Minion.
Anyhow, back to Elmo. Tonight as Kelly and I sat on the couch and entertained Landon with his Elmo doll we had a little debate about the lyrics to Elmo’s trademark song. I said it was la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, Elmo’s song. Kelly said it was la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, Elmo’s world. And so, of course we had to look it up. And when we did we found that there were two versions, once had the word “song” and the other had the word “world.” We both agreed that the “song” version probably came first.
We also found out that Landon loved watching Elmo. His little hands started moving to Elmo’s song, and his eyes were fixated on the computer screen. So cute.
I guess you are never too young for Sesame Street. Or old, for that matter.
La, la, la, la….
