Oldies But Goodies
It's nice to know that kids are still chanting the same rhymes as we did when we were little (with some political correctness to Eeny Meeny...)
Here's what the boys are chanting currently:
"Eeny meeny miney mo,
catch a tiger by the toe.
If he hollers make him pay
50 dollars every day.
My mother said to choose the very best one,
and you are not IT."
"Bubblegum, bubblegum in a dish.
How many pieces do you wish?"
There's something so sweet about hearing them recite these rhymes (at least until they start pounding each other about who is IT). We are still debating over Eeny Meeny, and whether you ARE it or AREN'T it when the counter lands on you. What is your opinion on the eeny meeny controversy? And what rhymes do you remember?
