Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

March 1st, 2013 by Mommy


Our Kindergartener celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday today. The instruction was to wear wacky clothes and hair. Emily chose her clothes, but they turned out more well accessorized than wacky. For her wacky hair we tried out several hairstyles last night and ended up with this variation. It was involved, but she vetoed the crazy Mama ideas. She seemed to enjoy Dr. Seuss’s birthday celebration although not many kids participated in the crazy clothes and no one else had a Seuss themed lunch. 


We sent a little girl to school and home came a cat. It was awesome to go through the pickup line and pick up the face painted cat.


Our fun hairstyle. Please, no one mention to her that it is a cheerleader hairstyle. Her hair wasn’t quite long enough to get the pony tail on the tip-top of her head.


The themed lunch – a green egg (the color didn’t show up well in the photo), ham, colorful sprinkles in the apple sauce for a party theme, chocolate goldfish, hat themed fruit on a stick, and a pickle sign post for the places she’ll go.


Why make one lunch when you can make two at the same time. Julia enjoyed her Seuss themed lunch too.

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Silly Lunches and Silly Grins

silly lunches

Mama tries to make creative lunches for the girls, but Emily took it to an new level with her own lunch. She decided to make the pretzels and grapes into trees and plant them in the peanut butter sandwich. I guess a grape is better when eaten off of a pretzel stick.

What a character! Emily is eating her lunch in a big person chair and reading a sale flier at the same time. She has found the shoe section of the sale flier. She consented to look up at the camera for a photo, but I think she took the opportunity to tell me about the pair of shoes she wanted me to buy her. She’s my daughter!

We have started to eat lunch in the kitchen where we can look out the window and watch for birds on the bird feeder. Today was a warm sunny day and the birds weren’t hungry, so Emily had moved on the sale flyer. I have lightened up a little and I am letting her stand on her chair to see out the window. The height is perfect for her to stand and rest her elbows to gaze out the window.
