When we were little, my mom bought us the whole set of Dr. Suess books. One of my favorite books was The Sneetches and Other Stories. I loved the rhyme-y quality of Dr. Suess stories, and The Sneetches was always such a fun read! Even up to now, I can still remember some of the lines...
"We're the best kind of Sneetch on the beaches"
With their snoots in the air, they would sniff and they'd snort.
"We'll have nothing to do with the plain belly sort!"
I know, such snobs these Star Belly Sneetches! But the book taught a valuable lesson about discrimination and the pitfalls of vanity and pretension, because sometimes, we really are just victims of "Fix-it-up Chappies" like Sylvester McMonkey McBean. Dr. Suess is a genius!
What's amusing is, I always thought those Sneetches looked so funny, absurd even. But then again, aren't all Dr. Suess characters such characters? When I took this picture of me, as I have a habit of chronicling how my belly has been growing, I couldn't help but think how I have slowly taken on the shape of a Sneetch! Hahaha!
Not so obvious here! But once the coat is off...
This is me at 26 weeks!
