The Goops

All five of us were required to memorize this growing up. I don't know if it helped with table manners, but it stuck in my brain! I quoted it to Elizabeth last night at supper.

The Goops

The Goops they lick their fingers,
And the Goops they lick their knives;
They spill their broth on the tablecloth --
Oh, they lead disgusting lives!

The Goops they talk while eating,
And loud and fast they chew;
And that is why I'm glad that I
Am not a Goop -- Are you?

Ha! My kids have heard that one before!

It's so funny what pops into your head from your childhood that you repeat to your own kids.

Hi there,
I had to print this off and read it to Hannah. She LOVED it!!! She wanted me to print off a copy for Mrs. "B", which I did and she LOVED it. So yesterday they practiced it in class, the entire class. LOL Look what we would have missed out on if we hadnt been introduced to this blog thing. :)
Thanks so much Stephanie!! I hope you dont mind me passing this on to the kindergarten teacher. :)
