Green Eggs and Ham for Dr. Seuss's Birthday

Every year the boys' school celebrates Dr. Seuss's birthday with a pajama-clad day of reading; they get to wear pajamas, bring stuffed animals, bring blankets, and bring books to read. What fun! I wish I could wear my pajamas to work. 

And every year we kick off the morning with a breakfast of green eggs and ham.  I tried, unsuccessfully I might add, to avoid the food coloring this year, telling them that "the eggs are 'green' as in 'organic' and 'free-range.'"  They were not going for it.  So I dug the vials of food coloring out of the far recesses of my cupboards, squeezed in a few drops, and called it good.  It's only once a year, right?



“Do you like green
eggs and ham?”
“I do not like them,
Sam-I-am.
I do not like green
eggs and ham!”

  3. Awesome! Camilla, you are definitely the coolest mom.

    I made Green Eggs and Ham for Max on Dr. Seuss's birthday, and had a real "Green Eggs and Ham" moment when Max took one look at them and said, "Ew! I don't like that!" "Try it, try it..." I insisted. She did, and she liked them. Couldn't have choreographed it better if I was the Doc himself!
