Humpty Dumpty

One night, as my hubby and I sat in the living room watching boring TV, we happened to come across this channel playing children’s nursery rhymes. And it happened to be Humpty Dumpty.

I used to think that every person would have known their Humpty Dumpty and Jack and Jill. But I was apparently very wrong. The man sitting next to me that night, had either missed out on his childhood OR he had some form of amnesia and forgotten a LARGE part of his nursery rhymes.

Now, for those of you who MIGHT not already know, here’s Humpty Dumpty for you:


Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall


Humpty Dumpty had a great fall


All the king’s horses and all the king’s men


Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

End of a tragic story.

Now, as an adult, you would probably ask some sensible questions like why would all the king’s men bother to save Humpty Dumpty right? Well, my hubby also asked me a question after watching this. His question was…

“You mean Humpty Dumpty is an egg?!”


I really think my hubby needs some re-education before Baby J comes along. Any offers for volunteer pre-school tuition teachers?

I got Barney DVD, can loan 2 Jared. Book of nursery rhymes? Remedial lessons at Little Big? :D

But then again, no need to Big J to learn... so I think you can refocus on Lil J. :)

San - Ya, the hubby probably needs to self-study. i'll focus on the teaching the Baby. ;p

Sandy - HAHA! Let's talk abt the simpler ones before introducing Bookworm club!
