in honor of ~

In honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday I thought I'd post a scrapbook page ( some may have seen this before ) that I made of my son Sam, using a quote of Dr. Seuss.


Today you are you.
That is truer than true.
There is no one alive who is
Youer than you!
           ~Dr. Seuss

That quote just fits my son so well.  On this particular day ( which was about 5 years ago) he was sanding down his old truck ~ getting it ready for a paint job.  That's paint dust all over his hands ... and it was all over everything else in the garage for some time afterwards.  It also showed up in the house, in the laundry, the bathroom sink, the living room furniture,  the carpeting, on the dog, in his hair, on the ice cream scoop, etc...

Yep ... that's my Sam.

Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.


  1. I like that quote but not the sanding dust. lol

  2. GREAT memory. You have a wonderful scrapbook. And handsome son. Love the quote, too. Take care.

  3. And someone you know was bluer than blue!

  4. Mom, that was about 3 yrs ago now, not 5, it just seems longer cuz the kid makes you grow old fast... you just had to have that BOY, couldn't stop at just 2 girls lol. I honestly couldn't imagine not having him around, he might make us all age at a rapid pace but he also keeps us young and active... Thank you for my little brother!!!!

  5. Boys will be boys! I love it. What's wrong with a little paint on your hands - or even in your hair? Hahahaha. Great post, Mel.

  6. I am not very familiar with Dr Seuss... i don't know but i don't think we had it in Holland when i was young...? Good Quote though and yes, mommies will be mommies and sons will be sons!

    Big hugs

  7. After all he's Sam I Am, just like the Sam from green eggs and ham! lol
    He is a hoot that's for sure, and loved by all who know him, heck I even have to look up to him!
    'love & hugs from afar'

  8. Ya gotta love our boys....
    they sure do add humor to our day....
    Loved this and still gotta laugh
