Monica, Do you remember when you were on Sesame Street? On one episode I watched with my granddaughter there was a deaf girl who signed. The program is as old as my eldest daughter, and we watched it all the time when the girls were that age--from the time my daughter was 10 months old. Then Electric Company and Multiplication ROck and Government Rock. smile I purchased a DVD that I thought was the whole first year; it's just selections from the first 10 years. It's funny to see how the hair and clothing styles have changed. I was hoping to get some of my favorite songs, like Head are the Gardens That Grow Hair, and Rolling O, but so far I haven't found them on it. I haven't seen the whole thing, though. I haven't been able to figure out how to operate their DVD and TV. G.Cindy --- Monica Svopa <svopa@xxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > I haven't had much experience baby sitting.
