March 2 is a big day at our house.

The girls have been asking all day if they can call Grammy. We’ll FaceTime with her soon. Today is her 52nd 32nd birthday. Happy Birthday, Mom.

Today would have been Dr. Seuss’ 109th birthday. Born Theodor Seuss Geisel, this great American writer, poet, and cartoonist penned 46 children’s books under various pen names, most notably Dr. Seuss. His love of meter and rhyme (and social commentary) has made is books favorites of many children, ours included. Thanks to Grandma and Papa, we have quite the collection of books by Dr. Seuss and Theo LeSieg. The girls love them. They are still to young to read them on their own, but they know entire pages by heart. As they “read” along with me I hope that they will always enjoy reading. (Though I still groan every time a little girl brings me Fox in Sox.) As my husband tweeted earlier today, “Celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday with my kids is not about honoring one man; it’s about teaching them the magic of reading.”

Remember, “the more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
