The Girl Loves Her Elmo!

The moment Lydia hears the opening notes to the Elmo's world song, all prior activity ceases. She loves that little monster. She really, really LOVES THAT LITTLE RED FURRY MONSTER! I mean, just look at how worked up she gets the moment it's on.

Clearly the creators at CTW and Sesame Street know the power of irresistible attraction that monster has on our children. I never noticed how much Elmo merchandise there exists until I had a child who is addicted. It's everywhere, even where you don't expect it. Diaper aisle? Of course. Tooth paste aisle? Check. Sports equipment aisle? Yep. Kleenex aisle? You betcha. Yes, this Elmo character is the crack, the crystal meth, the ecstasy, the basa, the ice, the glo if you will, for toddlers.
Wonder if there is Elmo rehab?
{cue the music..."they tried to make me go to rehab but I said no, no, no!"}

Getting her groove on to Elmo's song.

Losing herself in the music, the moment, she wants it, she better never let it go!

Getting crazy with the cheese whiz.

This is where she yells, "Oooh! Oooh! Elmo! Elmo!

Out. Of. Control.

Spinning and spinning and down she goes...

She won't move from this spot until Elmo's World is over and the closing credits to Sesame Street have begun. Then she gets up and starts dancing again to the new funky version of the Sesame Street song.
