Growing and Changing Girls

Word of the Day: Inevitable

Blog-Passport pics

Recently, I pulled Lyra and Ripley’s passport pictures out of my wallet to show a friend. They were so small, wearing identical fur-lined coats but still looking very unique with their slight wisps of blonde and brown hair. How much has changed! How much they’ve grown! I had to prop them up on the passport photo chair, poised to catch them if they teetered over. Now, they feed the dog, water the plants, clean up their dishes (when they haven’t rushed off to play and I don’t want the hassle of calling them back!) People say to enjoy all the moments, good and hard, because before you know it they’ll be off to college. At times, I can’t wait to start those tuition payments, but mostly I do try to appreciate every second of these growing, changing girls.

Like your family we have twins, boy/girl, that turned three last month. I saw your blog entry for January and it looks like we have something in common, potty training twins. Like one of your girls, my son WILL NOT pee in the potty but his sister was doing well until she caught on to "Bubbie" not trying. I was just letting things run their course but our local pre-schools/mommy day out programs require the children to be potty trained and this mommy needs a day out. Bribery isn't working. Have you had any success?

How often is the telly puppet renewed or replaced?

I read in 40 Years of Life on the Street about an incident involving Snuffy's puppet where a sombrero caused the wood frame to collapse on you and Bryant Young. Did they rebuild the puppet after that or did they just make a new one?

I just wanted to say thanks for the blog. My daughter Kylie (who just turned two yesterday) loves to ask if we are going to see "the babies." Thank you so much to you and Marty for bringing the joy of Sesame Street into our lives every day.

I've noticed that there are fewer Muppets and people in an episode now than there were twenty years ago. Does everyone show up on the set for filming days or only certain ones? Who decides who gets to play the Anything Muppets? There are some voices I hear more than others.
