bedtime stories

posted in: the Dahls | 1

Hadley loves nursery rhymes.  I think because between daycare and Barney we can sing most of them.  But I came across this one the other day and just wasn’t. quite. sure.

Goosey, Goosey, Gander
Whither shall I wander?
Upstairs and downstairs.
And in my lady’s chamber.

There I met an old man.
Who wouldn’t say his prayers.
I took him by the left leg.
And threw him down the stairs.


So many things I could say. 🙂  But I’ll just say…huh.

    Probably one of those old German ones that somehow continued on without people noticing it is completely absurd. Do you remember that book we had when we were younger that had the “real” disney stories? I remember having nightmares after Krista read me the real Little Mermaid. We tend to sell very morbid things to children, but as long as there’s a smile, and maybe a song, it’s ok. huh.
