My Many Colored Days (Thursday)

One of mine and Clara’s favorite books is Dr. Seuss’s My Many Colored Days, a gift from her Aunt JoJo. I love it because it’s teaching Clara that it’s okay for her to have different days, with different moods. We had a lot of fun today, finding different colors – this is our different colored day.

On bright red days
How good it feels
To be a horse
And kick my heels

On other days I’m other things
On bright blue days
I flap my wings

Some days of course
Feel sort of brown
Then I feel slow
And low, low down

Then comes a yellow day
And wheeeee
I’m a busy buzzy bee

Gray day…everything is gray.
I watch . But nothing moves today.

Then all of a sudden
I’m a circus seal!
On my orange days
That’s how I feel.

Green days. Deep deep in the sea.
Cool and quiet fish.
That’s me.

On purple days I’m sad
I groan.
I drag my tail.
I walk alone.

But when my days are happy pink
It’s great to jump and just not think

Then come my black days.
Mad. and loud.
I howl.
I growl at every cloud.
