“And to the tiger in the zoo, Madeline just said, “pooh, pooh!”—Ludwig Bemelman
I heard a report on NPR this morning that Madeline, Ludwig Bemelman’s plucky heroine that lives “in an old house in Paris, covered in vines” was turning 75 next year. I read all the Madeline books to my daughter when she was young. We both loved them.
Being reminded of Madeline’s courageous “pooh, pooh!” to the tiger in the zoo made me smile because that’s exactly what I decided to say to those old belief systems that were so insistently waving their hands in the back of the classroom yesterday.
And the reason I’m once again naming myself, “world’s luckiest person” is because when I mentioned them here on the blog, I was showered with so much love and support from so many people. And I just want to say thank you!
I am truly blessed, touched, humbled and forever grateful.
I wish each and every one of you the most amazing weekend of your life.
