The TV has been on in the background of most, if not all, of Scarlett's life. I felt it was because of this that Scarlett rarely showed any interest in television. Like air, the TV is reliably there. And like air, Scarlett paid it little mind. Whoa boy, has that changed. We were having a cranky night last night, so I desperately popped in Scarlett's new DVD (which was purchased at a tag sale for 50 cents, mind you). Scarlett, meet Elmo. Elmo, meet my previously inattentive daughter, Scarlett.
I can officially say that "Elmo Visits the Firehouse" is Scarlett's favorite movie. It's got everything, comedy, drama,...dogs even. A brief synopsis...Elmo is taking Maria out to lunch at Hooper's store and he is just about to eat a "scrumptious grilled cheese sandwich" when the fire alarm goes off and smoke starts billowing out of the kitchen. They immediately vacate the store while the firemen do their thing. Elmo develops a wicked case of the shakes followed by complete paralysis due to his fear of firemen...and I thought I had problems. Scarlett was at the edge of her seat...literally.
After this, I wised up and pulled Scarlett's chair closer to the TV. I found it funny that she had what appeared to be an inherent urge to sit during the movie. She also pulled out her Nuk, which she has shown no interest in in...oh, EVER.
