But I digress...back to Dr. Seuss' birthday. We read his Happy Birthday to You! in the Book Nook the rest of the week. I love twisting my tongue around Seuss' nonsense syllables, and to be honest, I had not read this particular book before this past week. It did not disappoint; by the end, it had me wishing I had a Birthday Bird from Katroo orchestrating my own birthday celebration--though I can do without the cake baked with Grade A "sausage-paste butter".
Wednesday was also an early release day, with staff development in the afternoon. I had so much fun wearing my Cat in the Hat hat topper, that I kept it on straight through the training. No one seemed to mind. We all need a bit of silliness to get through the day.
