Reagan Playing Cat In The Hat

In Dr, Seuss's first book featuring this character (The Cat in the Hat, 1957), the Cat brings a cheerful, exotic and exuberant form of chaos to a household of two young children one rainy day while their mother is out. Bringing with him two creatures appropriately named Thing One and Thing Two, the Cat performs all sorts of wacky tricks to amuse the children, with mixed results. The Cat's antics are vainly opposed by the family pet, who is a sentient and articulate goldfish. The children capture the Things and bring the Cat under control. He cleans up the house on his way out, disappearing seconds before the mother arrives.

Reagan sometimes brings a cheerful, exotic and exuberant form of chaos to our household. He certainly shows his displeasure when a toy or movie or prop has been moved! I often wonder if he has Thing One and Thing Two with him to make such a mess. Reagan, too, performs wacky tricks to amuse us, with mixed results. Our family pet, (Boots, a cat) often objects to Reagan's antics if it involves her. It gets a little crazy around here at times. Usually, however, when it comes time to clean up...he is better about that than the other kids.

Reagan is such a joy. He is doing well in pre-school which he attends 4 half-days a week. He also has speech therapy one day a week. Once I figure out how to post video, I want to show you how Reagan acts out the scenes in the VeggieTales movies he is so fond of.

Sorry, we tried to put a comment in last nite but I don't think it "took". Tell Reagan we think he's much cuter than Cat in the Hat or Thing One or Thing Two! Wish we could have been there for Devin's performance in the "big leagues". Tell everyone hello!
