...happy birthday dr. seuss

any child who has ever been read to or has learned to read themselves or has grown up, turned aunt, a sister, a mommy, a grandma,
anyone with someone close by with ears to hear...
has certainly boxed with foxes in socks.  wanted a talking fish.  wondered what green eggs and ham really taste like. do cats wear hats? hopped on pop.  they like to hop.  they like to hop on top of pop.  their brothers read a little bit.  little words like if and it.  their fathers can read big words too like constantinople and timbuktu.  one fish.  two fish.  red fish.  blue fish.  where do they come from?  i can.t say.  but i bet they have come a long, long way.  please let me be. please go away.
 i am not going to get up today! dreamed of a visit from thing 1 and thing 2.
i always wanted that...why?....didn.t you? wondered how horton could creep up like that.
where he sat and he sat and he sat and he sat.
but the lesson he taught we will never forget...
"i meant what i said.  and i said what i meant.....
an elephant.s faithful 100 percent"
be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O.shea, off to great places!
today is your day!
your mountain is waiting...
so.....get on your way!
happy birthday dr. seuss!

  7. Wacky Wednesday is my fav, when he wrote it, he
    wasn't Dr. Seuss, yet. We use to do something
    wacky every Wednesday after reading this book!

    Usually we eat breakfast for supper and once in awhile we ate dessert first; I know wacky!

  8. =-)!!!

    i love to listen to the Grinch at Christmas time - so much fun to HEAR the word-play...and if you've not seen Reverend Jesse Jackson read "Green Eggs & Ham" on SNL, i'm sure you can find it on YouTube - HILARIOUS!!

  9. When my kids were younger I could read the stories to them by heart because as soon as we finished they'd want to start all overy again. This brings back sweet memories.♥ Happy Birtday Dr. Suess and a happy Tuesday to you Chrissy!


  10. I love dr. seuss he is one of my favorites. I actually read his books out loud to myself in bed. They are filled with so many incredible life lessons. Thanks for reminding me it is his birthday! Have you ever seen "In Search of Dr. Seuss?" I only have it on VHS (and don't even own a VHS player) nut it is really neat. You learn a lot about his life. I also loved Sueussical, The Musical. I saw it on broadway and listen to the soundtrack all of the time. Dr. Seuss is such an inspiration.

  11. I wanted to share with you one of the quotes that always makes me stop and thinkg:

    "How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon. December is here before it's June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?"

  12. I has to be Green Eggs and Ham...our girls giggle SO much at the green eggs part...
    Happy Birthday Dr. Suess.
    AND...thanks for passing by our Blog...lovely to meet you!

  13. Yep, these books are classic! Imagination meets good old-fashioned "you can do it" thinking. A definite icon of its time.

  14. Oh Chrissy, just had to tell they celebrated Dr. Seuss at my sons school yesterday and even had green eggs and ham, the kids loved it! Hope you're having a great day!

  15. Hi Chrissy, Lisa here. Thanks for stopping by and commenting, in the midst of preparing for your artful journey. Your pictures show how wonderful the experience amazing to see all the talent, creativity and friendships.
    Dr. Seuss is wonderful. I like "Oh the Places You'll Go" and was given a copy by a dear teacher upon graduating high school.
    I would like to e-mail you about something...Or you can e-mail me at

  16. Love it!

    My favorite is "Oh, the Places You'll Go" and I also love the baby version of that for gifts: "Oh Baby, the Places You'll Go" - a book to be read in utero

  17. Hey Chrissy~
    one of my favorite authors by far! one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish~my favorite book! i was read it as a child and read it to both my girls when they were little all the time! one of my favorite plays is "suessical the musical" if you ever see that playing its great!


  18. Chrissy~
    Just saw you comment on my blog...
    my dream is to live in phoenix! if my hubby could find work out there we would move in a second. we visit there whenever we can and last time looked around at houses and different areas. if by chance he ever gets a job there you will be my go to person on where to live!

    you will love prescott. the little town square with Newman Gallery is very quaint. we stumbled upon it and the minute i walked in this gallery i was in love! it was so me. i asked if they would be interested in my jewelry and to my pleasure they said yes. they have great jewelry in there and a lot of other things and are supper nice to boot:)

  19. Some of my favorite Dr. Seuss lines are from are few words he is reported to have said at a party one night, "If my daddy hadn't met up with my mommy, Id' have missed this fine party tonight. If my daddy had shacked up with somebody else, just supposing for instance Miss Abigail Schmelz, or Patricia McFish or Louella McGee, I wouldn't have resulted, I wouldn't be me..."


your comments put the biggest smile on my face!
thank you so very much!
