Now that I stay at home and talk to a 4 month old all day, I have found myself really thinking about some of the things that we say to babies...
"Rock a bye baby in the treetop.....When the bough breaks the cradle will fall and down will come baby cradle and all???"
"Sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite!"
"Little Miss Muffet.... Along came a spider..."
How do any of the above bring comfort to a child?
And my favorite...
"Rub a dub dub, three men in a tub?!" That is just creepy! Who writes these things anyway?
