The boy and I were at Sunflower Market today and as I was getting ready to lift him out of the cart, I started counting to 3 just like I always do.  Before I could get past 1, 2, he said, “Buckle my shoe!”  Now I had no idea he even knew this rhyme so I played along.

3, 4 – Shut the door!

5, 6 – Pick up sticks!

7, 8 – Put them on the floor, flat!

9, 10 – Start all over!

Apparently rhyming isn’t one of his strengths.

Have to love his enthusiasm though.
