I love to read these to my kids now. I am an excellent story reader. Voices and sound effects are a must. I was never a huge fan of The Cat In The Hat. Maybe because my parents were not at all tollerant of messes or cats and a book about a cat making messes stressed me out. I loved The First of Octember and many others though.
A few quotes by the good Doctor stuck out to me as I was reading today. They apply to my struggle and maybe yours:
|Easy second favorite|
"I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”
You are the architect of your own destiny, the food didn't make me eat it. I chose to eat crap to get where I got. I cared about food more than I cared about life. Once you TRULY DECIDE TO CHOOSE you won't let anything get in your way. Decide now, knock down the excuses you have been telling yourself everyday even if you have to get the "big bat" out!
