You know that saying it’s never to early to teach your kids a classic, but slightly irreverent poem or saying? Yeah neither do, I but apparently the umpire lives by those words of wisdom and taught our girls the entire Bean’s Bean’s limerick during dinner the other day. I now am pretty sure It will be ingrained in their brains for a lifetime and will never be able to be undone.
Ironically it was all brought on by us having baked beans for dinner, go figure. which I assure you will never happen again.
Now I know you are probably aware of what humorous poem for kids I am talking about but I will still type it out for good measure
“Beans Beans the Magical fruit the more you eat the more you toot the more you toot the better you feel so lets have beans for every meal”
I was very thankful Wikipedia has a whole page dedicated to this poem so I could get it just right. That website never disappoints.
Never have I seen my girls so entertained, their snickers and giggles could not be overcome as they continued to sing “The bean” poem in every style possible. there was Country, Reggae, Rap, and my favorite the Christmas rendition where the poem was sang to the tune of Jingle Bells. Too bad I did not get out my camera we would have had a Viral you tube sensation for sure.
The moral of this story is do not invite my family over to dinner at your house if you are serving beans.
What funny poems or saying do your kid’s love to repeat over and over again?
