How to Survive 104 Degrees

Word of the Day:  HOT!
 
I suspect almost everyone reading this post has experienced the excruciatingly hot weather this summer. Knowing such heat is unhealthy for toddlers, we Robinsons have found no other recourse except water – sprinklers, hoses, buckets and pools. The girls have become little prunes who are very comfortable in the water. We put on their bubbles and tie noodles around them so they float around like kicking islands. (Safety Note: an adult is always within arms length!) Ripley has even learned to do a very zen-like back float.

In just a week, we can see how they’ve learned to use their legs to kick different ways. They can both turn in a circle and sing “Ring around the Rosie.” They propel themselves forward with their legs across the shallow section to our cheers and applause. We are quite proud, wrinkly parents, as you’ll see in this

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.
