Simply Seussical

Theo LeSieg has a birthday March 2nd.
He would be one-o-nine if he wasn't in heaven.
Who is Theo LeSieg you may question and ask?
Why, it's Dr Seuss' pen name or mask.
We got to celebrate his birthday this week.
In honor of books everywhere, so to speak.

We watched a few movies and read quite a few books
We ate some strange foods and were such silly cooks.

We watched The Lorax who speaks for the trees.
Both the old and the new versions of these.
Then we watched an elephant with rather large ears
protecting a minuscule speck that he hears.
We watched another one about The Grinch
that stole Whoville's Christmas one year, every inch!

"The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."
That is some wisdom a wise Seuss once said,
so we read,
and we read,
and we read,
and we read.

Some books that we read were Hop on Pop,
and also Ten Apples Up on Top.
Then we read these three Books you see,
The Eye,
The Foot,
The ABC.
All three great Books, we read all three.
Green Eggs & Ham,
The Cat in the Hat,
we sat as we read
and we read at we sat.
1 Fish, 2 Fish, Red Fish, Blue,
we then read Horton Hears A Who,
Bartholomew and the Oobleck too.
Oh, The Places You'll Go,
Oh, The Thinks You Can Think,
and The Lorax were read
all in printed ink.
Yertle the Turtle and Thidwick the Moose,
each book was written by dear Dr Seuss.

For our muffin tin meal this is what we had eaten
10 apple slices and eggs that weren't beaten.
They were deviled you see, and green ones at that,
then into our tummies went Cat's cookie hat.
We also had ham and some chocolate mousse
since Thidwick the Moose is in no way a goose.
One fish, two fish, red fish, green.
A Lorax sandwich can also be seen.
Green Oobleck pudding is quite a strange sight
but I'll have to admit, it tasted alright.
Last but not least a chocolate Yertle
Yes, Yertle the chocolate covered Turtle.
We were also to have some Pink Yink Ink Drink
but what would you know, I sure didn't think
We were all out of milk, not a drop nor a blink.

Another fun thing that we did as we played
was sort and count a fish cracker brigade.
We hopped and we popped on our bubble wrap,
searched for some specks, made Oobleck in a snap.

Some other odd happenings happened this week;
A hospital visit for a bloody nose leak,
Our car broke down on the freeway one night,
we're very thankful that we were all alright.
Our floors got mopped which does rarely occur,
All in all this whole week was somewhat of a blur.
