    Aww how cute. I wish I had a little one to share things like that with. I ran across a childrens poem the other day that I thought was really cute too. There wasn't an author so I don't know who the credit would go to. I think it would be something cute to share with little ones.

    CHICKENS

    Said the first little chicken,
    With a strange little squirm,
    "I wish I could find
    A fat little worm."

    Said the next little chicken,
    With an odd little shrug:
    "I wish I could find
    A fat little bug."

    Said a third little chicken,
    With a small sigh of grief,
    "I wish I could find
    A green little leaf!"

    Said the fourth little chicken,
    With a faint little moan,
    "I wish I could find
    A wee gravel stone."

    "Now, see here!" said the mother,
    From the green garden patch,
    "If you want any breakfast,
    Just come here and scratch!"
