Run DMT - I'm a mom on the run!

In Honor of Dr. Suess’s Birthday

Every time I see these fire hydrants around town, they remind me of Thing One and Thing Two from The Cat in the Hat.

 In Honor of Dr. Suesss Birthday


Living life as a mom on the run between races and raising three beautiful, brilliant children (ages 11, 7, 2). Before a blissful life as a SAHM, I taught elementary school for 7 years. In 2007, I discovered a passion for running. I'm currently training for a fourth marathon as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. In my spare time, I am the lead organizer for the Tampa Bay Bloggers on Facebook. I'm currently training for two marathons as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. From start to finish, I'm a mom on the run trying maintain an easy pace through it all.

    Oh, I love these! I love that shade of powder blue. The fire hydrants we have here are red and yellow, I think.

    We celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday by listening to some of his stories and making a tall Cat in the Hat hat with our homeschool friends at book club.

    Really cool; my son River walked in while I was checking out your WW and knew exactly what it was. He ran to the screen and said “Cat in the Hat!”

    Ha how cool are they!! There HAS to be a Suess fan behind the painting of these … I’m rushing off to read CITH right now! It’s been a while … such great memories, thanks!

    That is so funny!

    I see Dr. Seuss in the world around me as well. There is a tree near our “Main Street” that looks so Seussical to me. I should take a picture of it because I am sure you would agree!

    Too cute! Thanks for stopping by and the compliment on my family. I think they’re cute too! ~hehe~ Is it really Dr. Seuss birthday? I didn’t know that. I love the theme they have at Islands of Adventures in Florida. They have a whole section of Seuss – it’s fabulous!

    Yesterday the coffee shop that our retirees gather at monthly featured Dr. Seuss chicken pita or wrap. He got kids wanting to read. Good for him.

    Sam got off the bus yesterday with whiskers and a red and white striped hat. It was great!

    I’m never going to look at a hydrant the same again! Brilliant and I can see your point of view

    That’s something else I’ve never seen before, a specially painted fire hydrant (here, there just red, or red and white)–but though those two colors wouldn’t seem to go together well, they do, upon inspection!
