Each year our kindergarten classes have a "Nursery Rhyme Parade" around Halloween. The kids come to school dressed as their favorite nursery rhyme character and then the class/es walk around the campus visiting all the other classes and they recite a rhyme or two in the other classrooms.
It's quite a little event. The children are encouraged to use their imaginations, and make their 'costume'.
Audrey picked "Little Miss Muffet." We've been practicing her rhyme, and she's wearing a little dress and carrying a little basket with her spider in it. I figure that'll do, as a tuffet might be too awkward to carry.
I hear her off and on all the time, "Lit-tle Miss Muf-fet sits on her tuf-fet..."
Yesterday afternoon, as we were trying her dress on, she started up: "Lit-tle Miss Muf-fet" --pause---
"farts on her tuf-fet." --exploding gale of laughter
That's gonna go over well with the kids, I thought, as I laughed along with her.
Mr W heard us laughing and gave me that quizzical "what's up" look. I told him, and she recited her version for him again.
He smiled and pointed his finger squarely at me: "That's you. That's your kid."
I opened my eyes wide in mock innocence, "And I made her all by myself, too..."
