Welcome to the first week of Family Fun Friday here on Mommy Head Adventures. I have teamed up with Frontline Moms to bring you this super easy and incredibly fun weekly link up.
The rules are simple. All you need to do is write up a post that is family friendly and fun. Here are a few ideas:
- Fun Crafts
- Fun Recipes
- Fun Family Outings
- Fun Mom Games, or,
- Funny Stories of Your Family
Really, just about anything goes! We would love it if you would add our Family Fun Button to your post, which can be found on the sidebar. This way, more people can come over and have some fun with us.
Be sure to use the hashtag #FamFunFriday so we can keep track of your posts on Twitter. You may even see your post show up on the MHA Facebook page or pinned on my Family Friday Pinterest board. Be sure to give them both a follow.
Now for my Family Fun:
About a week ago, I was having a grand time at my in-laws’ house. Daddy Head and I spend a lot of time over there since he is the oldest of 10 children. There really is never a dull moment in our lives.
This particular night, as we spent time bonding over the Olympics, we came to a shocking discovery. There was a discrepancy over the lyrics to the old children’s rhyme, “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.”
The problem came at the bridge. You know the line: “Eyes and Ears and Mouth and Nose.” Well, when Bear insisted I sing it and her aunt do the motions, it was then the issue came to the surface. Her dear aunt was sure it was, “eyes and ears and nose and mouth.”
I assured her that I was right, and she assured me that she was. It was how they had always sang it. And that sinking feeling you get when you realize that you may have been betrayed your whole life hit me like a ton of bricks. Could my elementary school teachers have lead me astray?
After a quick Google search, we found out that the rhyme was exactly that, a rhyme.
And I could sleep peacefully at night knowing that my years of singing the song were not in vain. The book the kids loved to “read,”the cute one with the bear doing the motions, was not wrong after all!
