“Me going off me rocker—please give me Betty Crocker”

Opeie has always loved Sesame street, it seems on a daily basis though that we watch the same videos over and over. I sometimes cant tell whether its Opeie or Mrs M that likes them more with all the dance moves that i am lucky enough to be entertained by (she's certainly got some moves). This weeks most popular video in the house is the spoof of Carly Rae Jepsen's song sang by cookie monster called 'share it maybe'.

We have literally just had this song on about 10 times and Mrs M has laughed at the same part every single time. I thought i'd write the post so that when Opeie is a bit older he can see what it was that used to put a smile on his face (i only wish i could get a sneaky video of Mrs M dancing to it so you can see what i have to deal with on a day to day basis).

Some of the songs i dont mind, its usually the playing of them over and over again that gets annoying,but if they make Opeie happy then that's a good thing. I don't really remember any of the things i used to like when i was really young. I wish my parents had kept some sort of diary of all the little things, it would have been an interesting read and something great to compare what the boys like to.

There was a time when the only way we could get Opeie to calm down in the car was to play him . . . 

Although i prefer Yo Gabba Gabba i do think Sesame Street is a great show too and I'm really thankful that I'm not subjected to episode after episode of In the night garden or Teletubbies. Well I'm always interested to see whats going to be next to excite our little boy. but in the mean time I'm happy to watch him (and Mrs M) dance around the lounge like crazy.

I'll end the post with some amazing lyrics from cookie himself

"Me trade me soul for a bite
Me spell it out black and white
Me look at you and me see
You like an elf in a tree"

I have no words to follow that! speechless!!!
