I used to watch Sesame Street with my own children and then missed it for many, many years until Sofia came along. A lot has changed, a lot has stayed the same. One of our favorite characters, Mr. Noodle, was new to me. He makes both Sofia and me laugh out loud.
He is played by the very gifted physical comic, Bill Irwin and is very funny to watch in his hilarious ineptitude. Irwin is a good serious actor as well. He played the father in the movie, Rachel Getting Married, which I loved.
My art for the day is courtesy of Sofia.Sesame Street site. She loves to pick out the picture she wants, then I print it for her to color. What I really love is that the picture only interests her briefly, (picking it out seems to be the best part) then she flips the paper over to the back where she creates her own compositions.
