Hey Diddle Diddle
Hey Diddle Diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon. A nursery rhyme most children grow up hearing. Have you ever thought about what a child imagines when they hear a nursery rhyme like this one? Think about Humpty Dumpty, a giant talking egg....weird. A while back while the family was off at school and work, some cows had gotten on our property. It wasn't the first time and they would leave huge ruts that could swallow up one of my children. I'm looking at the cows and wondering how they got across and how I'm going to get them back over the fence. I guess I was wondering out loud because one of my kids stopped, looked up at me and told me, "Mom, if a cow can jump over the moon they can jump over a fence!". Well, what do you know, I was looking at it all wrong. Don't you just want to squeeze them? It brought a smile to my face and I will never forget it. Note to my daughters, I should have written this down in her scrapbook. Thanks Amy!
