sunshine out my eye

Ryenne and her friends are quite happy, it turns out.  (Except for those moments at home where.  . .yah, not so happy.  Oh well, who doesn't?)  ANYWAY, she has great friends and this has been a super, duper year as far as that goes.  Thank heavens for good friends is what I say.  I love to hear her awesome stories about the funny and happy things they do.  A bunch of cute girls for sure.

The other day, Ryenne told me how she was in the process of memorizing a poem and was almost finished.  I immediately had visions of Robert Frost or something, well, a tad bit intellectual, maybe?  Actually, it wasn't very Robert Frost-ish after all.  It seems her friend Hailee Jo found this poem and they immediately fell in l-o-v-e.   It currently hangs on Ryenne's wall in the form of an art project.

I'd like to be a glow worm
For a glow worm's never glum
For how can you be grumpy
when the sun shines out your bum?

As you might guess, it's a favorite around here.  In fact, yesterday Claire walked around the house singing "I'm glad to be a glow
worm . . .for a glow worm's always. . . happy!  For how can I be sad when the sun shines out my eye?" 

We politely asked her sisters not to correct her, on account of sunshine coming out of her eyes will sound a lot nicer at nursery than sunshine coming out of her. . .well, you know what I mean.
