My 6 year old son and I were cooped up in the house together for a few days because he had strep throat and a stomach virus. Mostly we got along. We came across this poem that gave us a good laugh when we weren't getting along so well. Feel free to share it with any little monsters you know.
Mother Ogre's Lullaby
Hush baby ogre, stop raving and rest.
Slumber, sweet savage impossible pest.
Stifle your tantrum, no kicking, don't bite.
Close your red eye . . .baby ogre, good-night.
from Monday's Troll, by Jack Prelutsky and Peter Sis
