Do you have a favorite Mother Goose Rhyme?
Share it with your children May 1 in honor of Mother Goose Day.
Here are two to get you going:
"Hey Diddle Diddle
The Cat and the Fiddle
The Cow Jumped Over the Moon.
The little Dog laughed to see such sport
The Dish Ran Away With The Spoon."
"Hickory Dickory Dock
The Mouse Ran up the Clock
The Clock struck one
And Down he run
Hickory, Dickory, Dock"
Cheers to May 1 and Mother Goose Day!
PATRIOTS DAY IN MASSACHUSETTS
In the area around Lexington and Concord, re-enactments of the battles in 1775 and the events leading up to them are held. A particular highlight is the opportunity to ring the bell that warned the local troops that British soldiers were approaching.
When you were a little kid, did you get excited waiting for the mailman to deliver the mail and special packages?
I know I did.
I secretly hoped that there would be something in that delivery that was just for me.
You know, something with my name on it instead of my parents' name; something that I didn't have to share with anyone else.
I wonder if kids feel the same way today.
Do you think that getting an email measures up to the same sense of anticipation and excitement for them as when the mailman delivered an actual letter with a stamp on it? Or when a package was delivered to them by hand?
I know that getting a new outfit can have the same sense of excitement for alot of little children.
Especially when it comes to them in their own package addressed just to them.
Making sure the contents of the package is a perfect fit is so important that we at Measuringupapp want to help them get the mail that will not have to be returned.
Share your story with us. We would love to know what your child gets excited about receiving in the mail.
