Throwback Thursday - Sesame Street Live

In honor of Connor's half birthday (yeah, I'm that person, the one who celebrates half birthdays), James and I got tickets to see Sesame Street live early this year. 


One for first shows Connor really watched and seemed to enjoy was Sesame Street. Something about the show would drawl Connor in and I would have a good 15-30 minutes to myself. Even better, I felt guilt-free and good about it because I know our son was watching educational, commercial-free television.  


We arrived early (in typical Cox Family fashion) and snagged us a light-up Elmo Wand and snapped a few photos. Connor wasn't really sure of what was going just yet as he hadn't seen anyone he would recognize (read, ELMO). 

Between singing, dancing and being {this close} to Mo, as Connor calls him, our little guy was mesmerized by the show.


Connor had a great time and although, we left a little early, it was a fun way to spend a Saturday morning. I think he would enjoy it even more now that he is a bit older. Most of the children I saw enjoyed the show - especially the music and monsters. Some danced in the aisles, while others jumped up and down to the songs. 

All the excitement of the day caught up with CJ once we started walking to the car. He took a moment to sit and the look on his face clearly screams "Elmo wasted".

  1. Celebrating half birthdays?! Ah man we really should do that around here. I LOVE it! I used to always say that I was going to celebrate my birthday on my half birthday because a December 28th birthday stinks! Late June would definitely be more fun.

  2. Awh how amazing is this! This has really taken me back. Connor looks so adorable in his little Elmo jumper. Have never even contemplated a half birthday before but an August half birthday for TL would be fab! :)

    1. I think it's a great way to do birthdays if you aren't able to have a legit/fun party on their birthday, having one at the 1/2 year mark is just as fun.

  7. Looks like he loved it!! I bet Hunter would enjoy something like that as well. We don't watch much Sesame Street but he knows and likes Elmo.

    1. We don't watch a lot of it now days but when we first starting watching TV, I just allowed him to watch PBS and this seemed to keep his interest longer than others.

    1. That makes you a great Mom in my book. Sometimes birthdays around holidays get lost in the madness.

    1. All the excitement resulted in a long nap after a morning with Elmo.

  11. Cute! My kid can't sit still for 15 seconds let alone 15 minutes so I can appreciate how worthwhile that must have been! What a cutie.

  13. Oh, Piper would love this. She's a big fan on Sesame Street and music. I'm always wary of taking the girls to any shows just because I don't want to spend the money for something they wouldn't enjoy. Thanks for sharing! :)

    1. It's a 50/50 situation. He did well this time but who knows what he would do now. Little ones can be pretty unpredictable.
