A NEW Mother Goose Rhyme for families!!


I had to laugh when one of my little daughters went about reciting this Mother Goose rhyme today after we finished reading our poems. We read several but it seems this one was the most popular!!

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe
She had so many children she didn't know what to do
She gave them some broth without any bread
Then whipped them all soundly and sent them to bed!

Except she changed a few words. Her rendition went like this:

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe
She had so many children she didn't know who was who
She gave them some broth without any bread
Then whipped them all soundly and sent them to bed!

Okay, so I get a little tongue tied once in a while. Who doesn't?

I can't stop mixing up kids names. I know who I am talking to or asking for, but the wrong name comes to my lips!
My kids love that rhyme!
