Dr. Seuss Day

Did you know that March 2nd is "Dr. Seuss Day?" It is in fact his birthday and school children all over the county celebrate by reading his books, wearing "cat in the hat" hats and by eating "green eggs and ham."

This celebration landed me in some hot water with Bub. See, I had unknowingly scheduled a doctor's appointment for the morning of Dr. Seuss day. I had to pull Bub out of preschool early, just as the green eggs hit the griddle in his preschool. Boy, was my name mud! He was very "sad at me."

So I made him a promise that we would have green eggs and ham for supper that evening. Making good on my promise, I let the kids watch "Green Eggs and Ham" on youtube while I cooked.

I presented the two oldest with plates of reaalllyyy appetizing food. (I knew that SG was too smart to eat creepy green eggs!)

I guess they were good...if you closed your eyes!

Bub wanted to watch other Dr. Suess cartoons while he ate! He cracked me up by announcing that "Dr. Suess is a really good rhymer!"

In the end, I think he forgave me, hopefully, otherwise I might have to recruit my dad for a little "Hop on Pop" session!

Oh my! I agree with Kim Peri, what a good momma you are! I remember the green egg and ham days. I had to laugh. My son would never touch them, but he absolutely positively could not miss them either! :D

Your vacation looked like so much FUN!

I agree with Bub about Dr. Suess being a good "rhymer!" I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them Sam I Am!! You are a cool momma!!
