My Son, Clark

Jack asked me to call him Clark today. He also asked that I call Sarah Baby Clark and, later, Dr. Phil. After laughing at him all day I asked where he got "Clark." He said, "From the Three Fish, Three Fish book." And at bedtime, I asked him to find it for me. He rummaged through his basket of books, "It's in here somewhere..." Then he produced Dr. Suess' One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. And then he flipped to this page:

This is Clark.

"Look what we found
in the park
in the dark.
We will take him home.
We will name him Clark."

The last page in the book pretty much sums up my life:

"Today is gone. Today was fun.
Tomorrow is another one.
Every day,
from here to there,
funny things are everywhere."

Haha! I look forward to those kind of funny days, where you never know what will come out of their mouths.

That is so dang cute! When was the last time he had read that book to think of it? let us know how long that lasts.

As you know your it! No worries on not being able to tag six people- just tag who ever you think you can and then leave it at that! Its just fun to play! Looking foward to seeing what you have on your list.
