She's got freckles on her...

(I hope no one is offended by the contents of this blog. It is in no way intended to do so. I just believe I need to give background before the story.)

I had a warped childhood. Instead of nursery rhymes my mother taught us weird little sayings and songs, i.e., (poetically) "One bright day in the middle of the night, two dead boys got up to fight. The deaf policeman heard this noise, came and killed those two dead boys. If you don't believe this lie is true, ask the blind man, she saw it, too." A song she taught us was, "She's got freckles on her, but (pun intended) she is pretty." Now remember, I am WARPED... I actually taught this "freckles" song to my oldest daughter (7) because she is at the age where she "gets it". We can sing it together and it is funny. She understands the humor. Unfortunately, I forgot that there are four other ears!

Funny Story
A few weeks ago, I wasn't feeling very good on a Wednesday night, so Tom took the girls to church and I stayed home. I was lying in bed when they walked in the door and Hayley said, out of the clear blue, "You got freckles on your butt, Mom." I laughed out loud! I know my 2 year old should not be saying "butt", however it was funny!

I hope someone got a chuckle out of this and that I am not disappointing anyone with my mothering!

You live and learn, right?

I love all your postings lately. This one cracked me up. You're still warped, you know!

You're a great mom, no matter what anyone else may say or think about you. This was too cute and funny; I don't think that song is warped; the poem, yes, but not the song. Thanks for bringing me a chuckle. I vaguely remember singing this song when I was a young girl. Thanks for resurrecting my memory. :) Happy Monday!
