Nursery Rhymes - 1

And Jack and Jill
Went up an ‘ill
To setch a pail of water down
Jack fell down
And byoke his gyound
And Jill came kyumbling after


Baa baa black sleep
Have you any wool
Yes sir, yes sir
Twee bags full
One’s a my master
One’s a my dame
One’s a the likkle boy Thaïs
Lives down the lake


I ear tunder, I ear tunder
‘Ark don’t you, ‘ark don’t you
Pitter patter yaindyops, pitter patter yaindyops
I’m wet tyoo, I’m wet tyoo


Can you imagine having to listen to this all through the day? Ok…. it was cute for the first 2-3 days. But after that I had to plead with her to keep quiet for a while.
Her nursery rhymes, together with the regular screaming and shouting had given me a headache.Whether she took pity on me or just needed to give her mouth a rest, I’ll never know, but when I finally got a few minutes of peace and quiet, I lay down and shut my eyes.
Imagine my shock when she came to me and yelled, “Tana, open your damn eyes!”
