Yep, it’s October and it’s my day here. I had grand plans to share some photos from prior October fun, but wouldn’t you know it, I left the laptop with all my photos saved in nice little folders at the office. So there went that plan.

So, instead of that yumminess, I thought I’d share an old game I used to play with my kids when they were lap-sitters. Remember the old rhyme where the kiddo sits on your knees and you bounce them as you sing the song, “Ride a cock horsey, go to town, watch your step that you don’t fall down” and when you say down, you open your knees and the child goes down a bit and giggles?

Anyway, I hope you remember because in honor of Halloween month, I’m going to tell you a new one. The rhyme I always sang (and I use the term loosely since my singing voice isn’t the best) is this: “Old lady witch, thought she was rich, picked up a penny and fell in a ditch” – the last word, of course, is when the knees part.

No wonder my kids are warped, right? All that crap about witches and ditches. LOL

Any fun rhyming games you want to share?
