Fond recollections of kittenhood

Hickory Dickory Dock… Humpty Dumpty Sat on a Wall… Jack be nimble….
Ah! I’m reliving my days as a kitten as I look through the wonderful nursery rhymes at nurseryrhymes.com. As a purrrrrfectly precious and adorable little kitten I found my Nana Cat reading these most wonderful rhymes to me on a daily basis. I was reminded of them this week when I heard a young child in our store lobby reciting “Twinkle, twinkle, little star…” She was quite proud of herself and the memorization (not to mention the charm of the subject matter) that she had accomplished by reciting this lengthy, though child-sized, rhyme.
I think it served me well as a reminder to stop and enjoy the time together that can come from sharing wonderful little tidbits like these. As the seasons change and we look to the holidays where friends and family are more present in our lives, take a moment to pull out your favorite children’s book (or nursery rhyme website) and share some quality time with the pint-sized ones in your life. They will remember it, as I do, forever.
