Trying Times and Nursery Rhymes

What do you do when you're just having one of those bad days?

One thing that makes me feel a little better - reading nursery rhymes to my youngest! There's just something about nursery rhymes that's light-hearted. And fun poetry books too. I bought some Shel Silverstein poetry books for my middle child, and we read a few pages the other day. Fun stuff. And it put me in a better mood right away! =)

If you'd like to check out the official site for kids from Shel Silverstein, click the link below. You can see a list of all his books too. My sons and I just read from the book Falling Up.

Anyway, the point of this post is...If you're having some trying times, try nursery rhymes to cheer up!!!

There is one Shel Silverstein illustration, and I don't remember the exact poem, of a girl lying on her back with food towering behind her...it might be the garbage poem, but I can't remember. Anyhow, when I was little, that image made me think that if you ate too much too fast, it would stack up in your stomach in its whole version (even though I knew you chewed your food), and I always thought that's what the tummy ache came from! Isn't that silly?!
