The insect we all love

Ladybug! Ladybug!
Fly away home.
Ladybug animated gif 1Your house is on fire.
 And your children all gone.
All except one,
And that's Ann,
For she has crept under
The frying pan.

This is a nursery rhyme as you may remember. It's good to have an adult telling them and saying that everything is fine. It's a little scary since it's time to bed. But I believe when we are children we pay attention on the melody not the meaning of it all. At least it was like that with me. Or we are all "Anns". Have a great Saturday!
This is the fun and relaxing week. Nothing serious for a while.

Such a beautiful nursery rhyme! Adults will always convince children that everything's fine so that children will easily go to sleep. And as children (once), we felt so safe. :)

Joaninha voa voa
Que o teu pai está em Lisboa
Com um saco de farinha
Para dar à Joaninha


P.S. for those who don't speak portuguese, joaninha is ladybug in portuguese.
This is a very old rhyme.

Obrigada José!
Nós não temos aqui no Rio. Pode ser que em algum lugar do Brasil.
Vou pesquisar em português.
Que bom saber!

P.S. For those who don't speak portuguese: I'm sorry, It's a very serious plan I'm proposing to José and it is private for it's quite revolutionary. Ladybugs will conquer the worl.... oops...
