Happy Birthday, Elmo!

He may be perpetually three-and-a-half, but loveable fuzzy red guy Elmo does have a birthday, and it’s today!

The Sesame Street icon and his “assistant” Kevin Clash, the puppeteer who created the character and voiced him for years, spoke at the National Book Festival in Washington, D.C., in 2006. My son and I got to meet Elmo and Kevin at the festival that year, had a book autographed, and posed for photos.

Here is my son, age 4, meeting his furry red monster hero. But I think I was as excited as he was.

Happy Birthday, Elmo! You haven’t aged a bit.
