    1. Thanks Renee! So, glad you watched the video blog! The Mo Willems skit was a blast! My daughter was a natural -- she totally just did it with little assistance!

      I would love to be on NWR -- but my poetry is awful.

    2. Haha! Maybe if we work together we could squeeze a nice little poem out of you. I'm game if you are.

  7. Eric! I love your blog. What a cool concept you have going here. Mo Willems is one of my favorite children's authors, so I am going to click over and watch your skit in just a bit. Can't wait.

    I also loved the birthday memory that Walter Wick's shared. What a cool Mom, he has! :)

    Looking forward to more birthday posts...

    1. Thanks Natalie! Mo Willems is fabulous. Last year, I was actually nervous about posting about his birthday because he is such a popular author. I couldn't believe I got a Tweet back from him!
