The Pickle Soda triplets have continued their weekly trips to the library.  They’ve become fans of Mo Willems, Dr. Seus, and of course Peggy Rathman.  This week we’ve returned to the joy of Sandra Boynton.  Blue Hat, Green Hat.  The elephant, bear and moose know how to get dressed but the turkey never really gets it.  In our house we always say, “What a turkey!” everytime the turkey messes up.

Elsie Sunshine (she has a chin, it’s just very small)

That turkey just can’t get dressed.  Everybody knows that you put the shirt on over your head and then fasten the buttons under your bum.  That way the shirt stays in place and helps keep your diaper secure.  What a turkey.

Mabel (she’s a tiger)

From what I understand shoes are meant to just be immediately kicked off your feet not put on your head.  What a turkey.

Honeybear (pronounced “Juniper”)

The turkey clearly isn’t the brightest animal out there but should we really find humor in the turkey’s foolishness.  Is it appropriate to laugh at someone for being unintelligent?  It’s like watching those American Idol try-outs just to laugh at the worst ones.  Of course we all enjoyed William Hung but should we have? Finally why do we have to consider the turkey to be foolish for not knowing how to put on pants.  Turkeys don’t wear pants.  I wear pants and have no idea how to put them on.  Should I be laughed at?  Honestly I don’t know because when that turkey dives into a pool full of water with all her clothes on it is hilarious and I can’t help but to laugh.  What a turkey.
