Thing One And Thing Two

Shawn and Lisa brought these shirts home from Florida for Max and Aviva.  I believe Lisa's words were: "I wanted to get them for my kids, but they just seemed so much more appropriate for your kids."  

Nice. 

True though. 

"I will pick up the hook.
You will see something new. 
Two things.  And I call them
Thing One and Thing Two.
These Things will not bite you.  
They want to have fun."
Then, out of the box 
Came Thing Two and Thing One!...

Thing Two and Thing One!
They ran up! They ran down!
On the string of one kite 
We saw Mother's new gown!
her gown with the dots 
That are pink, white and red.  
Then we saw one kite bump
On the head of her bed!
Then those Things ran about 
With big bumps, jumps and kicks
And with hops and big thumps 
And all kinds of bad tricks. 
-Dr. Suess

I read all the way to the end of this waiting for it to be an announcement of thing 3. . . I was wrong. But the shirts are cute nonetheless. :)

It's too bad the shirts don't come in adult sizes for the parents. Yes - that's right-I said it! Baby things one and things two have to come from somewhere! But they are adorable. Linda
