Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
I have had to make a huge effort to keep everything straight. Wacky Wednesday,
Crazy Hair day, Pajama Friday, and Wear Red and White day. Between two schools and two boys it can get confusing, and a little wacky!
It seems as though Dr. Seuss’ birthday has become a national event and how wonderful! It is even one of the few things that can actually be celebrated in public school.
The boys have been so inspired by Dr. Seuss and his imaginative style, his creativity and innovation. I too, am inspired by his mind and ability to put it all together in such an enchanting way.
I think I am finding myself inspired by the art of writing too these days…
Brayden and I were just talking yesterday about how books and writing is something that can last forever.
At this age though, he really wants to know the logistics of how all that can happen “how does it last forever? What if a book gets ruined or torn or burned?”. Funny. I guess the conversation about archives (what are those called-microfiche? ancient, I know.), digital copies, the internet era, and all that other crazy stuff that I don’t have the least bit of knowledge about is for another day.
But it does again make me ever so glad to have taken the leap and put my writing out into cyberspace. If nothing else, it will be a gift to myself, my family, and my kiddos as I document this time in our lives.
Thank you for coming along on this journey with me and reading as I continue to be enlightened by my every day, ordinary life!
