He is one wise fellow,

that Cat in a Hat!

Dr Seuss books are pretty popular here in our house, and which such great quotes as

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.
Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you 
I am happy to read them as often as the kids like. Caden can ever read most of The Cat in a Hat by himself.

Book week ended today with a full school parade at Caden's school and all the kids got to get up on stage and show off their costumes.

Caden's costume was finished yesterday afternoon sans gloves, because he decided he didn't need them.

He also decided that he didn't want his face painted this morning.

But he got up on stage and told the whole school that he was Cat in a Hat and that made me smile from ear to ear. We have been having some issues with him and school. Tears every morning and pronouncements of 'I hate school, Mum!'. Or simply him hiding under his covers crying his eyes out and simply saying he wasn't going. We having been working with his teacher to try and figure out what on earth was going on as he loved school and has been doing really well academically, socially is where his issues lay. And that is something we have been working on too, building his confidence, getting him into team sports...

Anyway, seeing him up on stage in front of the whole (rather large) school and hearing his voice announce that he was Cat in a Hat made me oh so proud!

Kids, they really do make your heart beat outside your chest from the moment they are born!


  1. Love the costume. I hope you work out the issues at school. <3

  2. I love your photos. Your son has a lovely smile. They brought back lots of memories of when I sent my son to school as The Cat in the Hat. He really hated dressing up, and went and hid because he found the whole thing too much. I really beat myself up about it. He is 13 now, and cannot even remember that traumatic day.
