“Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you! Shout loud, “I am lucky to be what I am! Thank goodness I’m not just a clam or a ham or a dusty old jar of sour gooseberry jam! I am what I am! That’s a great thing to be! If I say so myself, “Happy Birthday to Me!””
– Happy Birthday to You, by Dr. Seuss (Originally published in 1959)

I am married. We have two boys, two dogs, and two cats. I am on the Oxford Comma team. I look forward to my first large cup of coffee, black, every single morning, and I look forward to that second large cup of coffee, still black, every single afternoon.

hey i thought this blog was about my famous dog lily. why are you talking about dr. seuss? oh, because he is awesome too!
Ha! Something tells me Lily has as many fans/followers as Dr. Seuss. They are both rock stars.
I can’t wait until my grandson is old enough to enjoy Dr. Seuss. I loved reading the stories to my boys.
Some phases in life are worth reliving time and time again, Susan. Reading Dr. Seuss to kids is one of those phases. I am glad you’ll get to relive the pleasure again, Susan.
Two thumbs up for Dr. Seuss and all the books our children can enjoy.

Thank you, Maxi! Blessings to you, and may you read many wonderful books!
As much as I like Dr. Suess, I had a period of time in which I never wanted to read him again after too much Green Eggs and Ham.
Ha. Were you daring enough to try the real thing? I can’t say I was a huge fan as a kid, but I do enjoy them these days. Very much, actually. In fact, I could read them here, or there or anywhere! (sorry. had to.)
Dr. Seuss are fantastic books for the kids, we would be lost without these books. 😀
Hello Mags, Dr. Seuss shares some incredible lessons. I have a greater appreciation for his work now that I am adult and ‘get’ the messages. Hopefully, we are teaching those messages to our kids.
I wonder how many kids have eaten green eggs and ham because of Dr. Seuss.
I haven’t indulged in the delicacy yet. I should put it on my bucket list, perhaps.
Thank you, Stasha. Did you read a book or two of Dr. Seuss to Little J?
I still love Dr. Seuss!
My mother has tiny Thing One and Thing Two dolls (which I enjoy hiding / setting up to get caught in ‘mischievous’ behavior when I visit my parents)…
Ha! You’re such a good son. 🙂
