Not ideal then....grin

Ds1 wants to do the NingNangNong...I can't handle the arguments if they both do it.

Everyone grumbled. The sky was grey.
We had nothing to do and nothing to say.
We were nearing the end of a dismal day,
And then there seemed to be nothing beyond,
Daddy fell into the pond!

And everyone's face grew merry and bright,
And Timothy danced for sheer delight.
"Give me the camera, quick, oh quick!
He's crawling out of the duckweed!" Click!

Then the gardener suddenly slapped his knee,
And doubled up, shaking silently,
And the ducks all quacked as if they were daft,
And it sounded as if the old drake laughed.
Oh, there wasn't a thing that didn't respond
Daddy Fell into the pond!

Sit up straight
Said Mum to Mabel.
Keep your elbows
Off the table.
Do not eat peas off a fork.
Your mouth is full -
Don't try and talk.
Keep your mouth shut
When you eat.
Keep still or you'll
Fall off your seat.
If you want more ,
You will say 'please'.
Don't fiddle with
That piece of cheese!
If then we kids
Cause such a fuss
Why do you go on
Having us?

Gez Walsh poems are fun, such as The Spot On My Bum!

Bless him....he tried so hard to copy from the screen or paper but he kept making mistakes. The competeitoon is about presentaion and neat handwriting so
he was getting in a right tizzzz.

I had to make him stop because he was in tears. I told him to try again tomorrow.

We all love the spot on my bum one!

Thanks everyone.
