Last weekend we took Aiden to Providence to see Sesame Street Live! Those who know my boy know that he loves Elmo so we were hoping that he would really enjoy this performance. Aiden is a typical 2 year old in the sense that he doesn't like to sit still for long. We attempted the movies once and he lasted about 25 minutes. We were nervous that he may not sit through the whole show and we were right. He didn't sit...he stood up, danced, clapped, waved his arms, sang along and blew kisses to the characters. He LOVED it! This was our first experience at a children's show and boy were there a ton of distractions. Most of the distractions were screaming children...not screaming as in "woohoo, we love Elmo" but screaming as in "please stop torturing me with these huge puppets and get me out of here". But for the most part the Providence Performing Arts center was filled with excited children and it just so happened that we sat right in front of the MOST excited adult EVER!!! WOW...this lady was getting into it. She gets an A+ for extreme audience participation! Not only did the show last almost 90 minutes but there was also an intermission...we thought for sure that would be the demise of our excited boy but again, we were wrong.
Aiden talked about sesame street for 2 weeks leading up to the show and now the first thing he tells people is "I saw sesaseee (Sesame) Street". I guess it was money well spent...
