For some reason, I was thinking about this tonight and thought I'd come back and share this cute story with you. We have a book of nursery rhymes that was given to my older son when he was born. We love to read together and sometimes read that whole book more than once in one sitting. CJ loves those rhymes! I've even overheard him playing in his room or in his carseat singing some of them to himself! (He's three now) His favorite is "Diddle Diddle Dumpling." Although he says, "Diddle diddle dumplin nice n jom, went to bed with his trousers on, one shoe on and one shoe on, diddle diddle dumpling nice n jom!" One day when he was a baby I was being goofy and made a rhyme up for him. I still sing it to him to this day and everytime he hears "Georgie Porgie" he will say, "Hey, that's like my song! Sing my song!" So I do and he loves it!
