Aloha Friday: Favorite Childhood TV Shows

This morning my son told me that he didn’t want to watch Elmo. Seriously. When I’d turned the tv on, Playhouse Disney was on, leftover from some show he’d been watching last night. I glanced at the clock and noticed Elmo’s World was just starting on Sesame Street so I clicked over to PBS immediately, knowing it was his favorite. “No!
