Do you know your nursery rhymes?

I have been trying to think of a creative way to showcase Bri's lonely curl.  It is the only bit of curl that any of my kids has ever had -- and so we cherish it.  I think of a certain nursery rhyme when I see her curl.  Now, she has the attitude to match.

Thus, here is my version of a popular nursery rhyme.

There was a little girl

Who had a little curl

Right in the middle of her forehead back of her head.

And when she was good

She was very, very good

But when she was bad

She was horrid!

-Nursery Rhyme (Adaptation by Napmom)
And here are the pictures to go with it.  You will have to trust me that she has the attitude personality to match the poem.

Clarification:  Many people (myself included, until now) do not know that this nursery rhyme (often credited to Mother Goose) is actually a poem written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow  According to several websites (including
The line "she was very, very good" should actually be "she was very good indeed." Longfellow's second son Ernest says of this poem: "It was while walking up and down with his second daughter, then a baby in his arms, that my father composed and sang to her the well-known lines .... Many people think this a Mother Goose rhyme, but this is the true version and history."
