Today is Dr. Seuss' birthday. What? You didn't know that? Aren't all mommies supposed to know these things? So I got on Pinterest this morning for some extra servings of green eggs and inspiration when suddenly I started to feel so...... inferior.
Sure, we celebrated Groundhog's Day this year with groundhog cupcakes
along with some commercial viewing...
And Valentine's Day began with a candlelight breakfast full of all things red and heart-shaped...
... and lunch continued much the same way.
even if the kiddos have to be done in two groups because the youngest was wwwwaaaaaayyyy too grumpy that morning to be photographed?
There were games after dinner which included Chubby Puppy-- the Valentine's Edition and Heart Bingo (even though Eli had a basketball game that night).
and eat frog cupcakes.
Still, after all that manufactured fun, I still feel inferior? Why???? I'm blaming Pinterest!
So, tonight, we will be eating "boring" old green eggs and ham, Dr. Seuss hat pancakes, and 1 fish, 2 fish, goldfish crackers. We will be reading the same old Dr. Seuss books and we will play Seuss bingo just like we did last year. And, at the end of the night, my three kiddos will love me just as much as they would if I spent hundreds of dollars and metric tons of energy to give them a Pintrest-style Dr. Seuss Day.
