Dr. Seuss's Birthday

Our copy doesn't look this nice anymore--it's Natalie's that she had as a kid. 
Hey, this is Randy . . .

Today is March 2, which is Dr. Seuss's Birthday (for nerdy school teachers). Last year we did a simple Ten Apples Up on Top game with the boys. This year we decided to do Wacky Wednesday. For some reason Dax likes this crazy book.

After the kids went to bed last night, we made a few things around the house "wacky." A few of the things we did were straight from the book. For example, we had an umbrella in a pan on on the stove and, of course, a shoe stuck to the wall (Seth's baby shoe actually stayed up with a little tape).

We had plenty of our own ideas, too. We turned furniture backward, stacked things in weird places, turned pictures upside-down, and generally made a mess. All in all, I'd say we thoroughly enjoyed this as much as the kids!

When the boys woke up they loved it. (Well, to be fair, I think Seth was unfazed-- everything we do is wacky to him.) It turned into a treasure hunt for the boys. They ran around the house saying, "What the . . .?" (I'm sure they picked that phrase up from their mom.) Dax's favorite wacky thing was the bananas hanging from the light fixture and Mark's was the chair wearing socks.

Of course, the morning ended with Green Eggs and Brown Sausages (it's still a pig, right?) I'm actually looking forward to next March 2.

Mark's favorite!

Gotta have a shoe on the wall--that's how Wacky Wednesday began.

Dax's favorite!

There is usually a plant where the paper towels are and I'm pretty sure Van Gogh didn't paint the picture like that.

Who's Karm?

Dax loved Manner #7: Stand on your head!

This was Natalie's favorite--I didn't know Randy had put this one in here until I went to unload the dishwasher! :)


  1. Wow and I thought we had a fun celebration! I might have to try that next year. Although with all the craziness at my house normally, they probably wouldn't even notice!

  2. And you think Natalie is the one with the BIG ideas!!! Sounds fun though!

  3. You two are just too much fun!! LOVE this!

  4. How did you get the shoe to stick on the wall? That was awesome.
