Seussling Gets a Bath

Bridgette's nurse accidentally dropped Seussling on the hospital floor, so Seussling got a bath on Sunday. After drying in the shower for three days, he (or she?) is now back in the crib with Bridgette while she naps.

A brief history of Seussling:

- We discovered Seussling on the modern cover of Dr. Seuss's If I Ran the Zoo.

- In the story, Young Gerald McGrew let's all the normal animals go and fills it with "beasts of a much more unusual kind."

- Seussling is not pictured or named inside the book. Therefore, "Seussling" is a temporary nomenclature until Bridgette comes up with a suitable permanent name. So far she just sucks on him... which is pretty hard to pronounce.

- If I Ran the Zoo is credited with the first printing of the English word "Nerd," an animal McGrew brings back from the land of Ka-Troo. And while I don't know if it's an island, it appears you have to sail there.

- You can watch the book here: Part 1 and Part 2.

Oooooh....I am so glad she has him back. Does she have her favorite blanket back too. If so, then she has to be a happy girl.
