New Version of Jack and Jill

Oh me, oh my, the things that my kids will say.  My little 5-year-old son, Christopher, sure gave me a shock the other day.  He had learned the nursery rhyme Jack and Jack in PK the other day.  He started reciting it out of the blue one weekend and I could tell which nursery rhyme he was saying, but his version was a little different from the one I remember.

Instead of “Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water.” it sounded like he said, “Jack and Jill went up the hill to get the hell out of the water.”  LOL  You have to know that my son has some things that he can’t pronounce very well, so I think he really meant to say it the right way.  But boy, oh boy, his version sure gave me a laugh.  It was so funny that I had to share it with his teacher the following Monday.  You just never know what my kids might say.
