Who doesn’t remember reading Dr. Seuss books? They are a staple in nearly every household.
Cat in the Hat. Green Eggs and Ham. Oh, the Places You’ll Go. Hop on Pop.
Addie calls them her “Papa Seuss” books and I think it’s just the cutest thing ever.
Today was his birthday and Boy! did we celebrate!
We started off the day with Green Eggs (no ham) and Oh, the Places You’ll Go-gurt (aka yogurt)
I had a hard time convincing the girls to eat the green eggs, but eventually they did (with enough ketchup!)
Wednesdays are usually our “Library days” so off we went. I did Emma’s hair in a Cindy Lou Who-style I had seen on Pinterest, but for some reason couldn’t find.
I believe in the original post, the lady used pipe cleaners to keep the hair up more, but I’m sure Emma would’ve hated that. So, this is just four sections of her hair braided and looped.
After the library, we came back home and I made lunch, which included One Fish, Two Fish Goldfish; Cat in the Hat cheese sticks and Cat in the Hat strawberry and banana skewers.
After lunch was nap time. Ahhhhh, nap time.
Anyways, after naps, CRAFTS!
First, snacks! Cranky kids after naps and all.
Swedish Fish for One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. And some Hop on Pop popcorn.
And then, crafts! I printed this page for Emma to work on some homeschool preschool skills.
She glued and colored her Thing 1 (I hot glued the eyes and made the smile).
For dinner, we had PIZZA! Cat in the Hat pizza.
I bought a pre-made dough from Publix and had Eric break it up into little personal pizzas for each girl. Then, I let them help assemble each of their pizzas. We layered pepperonis and cheese to create the cat’s hat look. Then, hubby cooked them on a pizza stone on the BBQ. MMMmmmmmm. It had been a LONG time since we had cooked a pizza on there and Man, were they good! The kids actually ate all of them! Without too much coercion.
After pizza, we had The Lorax Nutter Butters and strawberry and marshmallow Cat in the Hat skewers.
I’d say we had a pretty great day!
Thanks for the memories, Dr. Seuss.
