tinkle, tinkle

Standard

The Honking Goose

When my children were very small and learning to use the potty, I made up a song to sing to them. Sung to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, these are the words:

Tinkle, tinkle
little pee
how I wonder
where you’ll be

in a diaper or
on the pot
outside or
maybe not

tinkle, tinkle
little pee
how I wonder
where you’ll be

It might seem silly, but that is the whole point. Silliness can be a saving grace to parents who are tasked with jobs of such enormous responsibility. What silly things do you (or did you) do as a parent?
