A Seuss week
This week has been really hectic (yes, I realize I say that a lot, and yes it is true every time I mention it). Between John writing proposals for time on the Hubble Space telescope (finished today), my first joint-lab meeting presentation (yesterday and went well), being out helping a friend who just had a baby, writing a paper to submit (from grad work), and starting out on fellowship applications, we have felt that we have spent very little time with the mooch. In addition to all that we've been doing, Katrina's had a busy week too at daycare. For the first time since she started daycare in Baltimore, they had a themed week and the theme was Dr. Seuss.
What's entailed in a Dr. Seuss week? I'm so glad you asked. Monday was clothing inside-out day (the Romanian in me was cringing at all the bad luck that this meant, but we obliged). Tuesday was silly hat day. We of course thought that it meant that we were to bring in a silly hat, so John made one using tissue paper, paper plates, and tuperware. Once I retrieve it, we will take a picture of it and post it. Despite it being a great hat, Katrina wanted nothing to do with it, which was ok, because actually they made hats at school. Wednesday was green eggs and ham day (breakfast for the parents with yes, green eggs), as well as pajama day. Thursday was dress up like a Dr. Seuss character day, so Katrina wore a red shirt and a sign that said Thing One. Again, she was the only kid in her class with a costume, but she wore her sign proudly. Today was silly socks day and the only day that we managed to take pictures this week. Katrina wore her silliest and neatest pair of stockings. The entire week culminated in a Seussical celebration that involved green slime, painting with shoes, snacks, and lots of coloring activities. Whew! What a week!
