Well, I’m off to visit Whoville today. My grandkids are coming to town (first visit to my house in 2 years). They live out of state, so it’s always been easier for me to go there. But they will be spending the night and this is one excited Nana.
But, back to Whoville. Horton Hears a Who! is the must see movie of spring break. With Jim Carrey, Steve Carell and Carol Burnett lending their voices, I’m expecting great things. Throw in buttered popcorn, soda, Twizzlers and Milk Duds, it becomes an event of major proportions. Of course, I could sit between Alex 7, and Lydia, 5 and have the worst movie ever made playing and still enjoy my time with them.
I’ve always been a huge Dr. Seuss fan. My kids had all the books and they loved when I read them fast (which wasn’t always easy with those crazy made up words). But wasn’t that the fun of it? Made up words that defied definition. Crazy situations and crazy characters. Imagination run amuck. And how many of us can immediately fall into the, "One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish…" recital?
Do you have a favorite Dr. Seuss book? Are there certain sayings you just can’t get out of your head? Did your kids make you read them over and over again? What’s their staying power? Have you seen Horton (don’t tell me the ending)?
Bottom Line: Yesterday was the first day of spring, so of course, we have a snowstorm going on here in Wisconsin and expecting 12-15 inches of snow! That’s it…I’m moving to Whoville.
