Nursery Crime

A couple of weeks ago I posted a stout defence of Justin (Gigglebiz) Fletcher, referring to some parliamentary nonsense criticising Mr Tumble's update of a nursery rhyme. To re-cap, an MP (as if they've nothing better to do) expressed his outraged disapproval at the fact that Humpty Dumpty had a happy ending.

Since then we've been going nursery-rhyme crazy here. There were further updates of old favourites posted in the comments box (none of which were very kind about MPs), I did some research on-line into the origins of several of the most popular rhymes (believe me, you don't want to know) and - not to be outdone - Charlie learnt to recite that old favourite, Georgie Porgie (Pudding and Pie). Well, recite is maybe going just a bit too far. Enact, perhaps. Perform. Yes, definitely perform. He performs the rhyme, with just a modicum of help from me.

Having recorded that little episode for posterity, I dug out an old film of Sally doing something similar at a similar age. So, for your delectation and delight, for your edification and your education here's a little film - first of Charlie, then of Charlie watching Sally, then of Sally herself, aged just over two, entertaining us all one morning in the garden.
