I'm in trouble with pre-school...

"can I have a word?"

Dreaded words to come from your child's teacher at any time, let alone 3 weeks into the first term of preschool!

"your dd told us today that we weren't singing Mary had a little lamb the right way today."

"erm... Ok?"

"yes... She wanted to know what happened to the bit where she cooks the lamb..."

"oops"

So now I'm trying to stop myself from singing the corrupt versions of nursery rhymes. I don't really want to be responsible for small children going home crying that MiniBeard said Mary ate her lamb with mint sauce!

I worked in a nursery and one I sang was
baa baa black sheep have you any spots?
Yes sir ,yes sir lots and lots.
One on my tummy,one on my toes
And a great big pink one on the end of my nose.
Colour of your choice of course...

DH's version of Little Miss Muffet:

^Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet
Eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider
So she ate that as well.^
