oh, the places you'll go!
{at the portland children's museum}

my dear evelyn:

you have brains in your head. you have feet in your shoes. 
you can steer yourself in any direction you choose.

and as your mama, of course, i'm curious to know
what you'll be like when you're fully grown.

will you be a grocery clerk who's friendly and kind?

or perhaps a mad scientist who studies the mind?

you'll get mixed up, of course, as you already know. 
you'll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go. 

so be sure when you step. 
step with care and great tact, 
and remember that life's a great balancing act.

just never forget to be dexterous and deft. 
and never mix up your right foot with your left.

will you drive ambulances and help save lives,
speeding down freeways with hurt husbands and wives?

and will you succeed?
yes! you will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)

you won't lag behind, because you've got the speed. 
you'll pass the whole gang and you'll soon take the lead.
wherever you fly, you'll be best of the best.
wherever you go, you will top all the rest.

happy birthday, dr. seuss. we love you!

leave a little note!
