I'm not sure what it is about Elmo that keeps Aiden so entertained, but he loves him. Every morning we watch Sesame Street and Aiden ignores most of it up until the Elmo's World segment starts. As soon as he hears the "La la la la, la la la la, Elmo's World!" he comes running into the living room and plops himself down in the floor until it's over. Unfortunetly that is only about 15 minutes or so.
However, guess what my brother (Uncle Billy) bought Aiden???.......
"The Best of Elmo 2"
The movie is about an hour long, and let me just say that Aiden sat and watched the whole thing! There is lots of music for him to dance to and Elmo is in the whole thing. It works out really well for times like now when I have a lot going on and it is helpful to have an hour where I can do whatever I need to do (right now that would be packing).
