Karnival of Kidz 8

Take a sleep deprived woman, an odd sense of humor and you get this for the Karnival of Kidz.

Who can take a sunrise,
Sprinkle it with dew?
Cover his face with a cupcake or two…
Oddybobo's little boy can!

Then I ran into trouble. How to include OddyBobo's post on Palm Pilots? Oh. That worked. Ahhh... I found another couple I could rhyme in the song:

The candyman? The candyman can…
The candyman can 'cause he mixes it with love
And look at Brenna stand good!

Thank goodness the geekness runs in the family... because that means I can mention more about their blog after Jen's kids entry below.

The Candyman makes
everything he bakes
Satisfying and delicious.
Talk about your childhood wishes.
And don't you just want to give Riley kisses?

Yet, this didn't do justice to TJ Evans blog of NIF. Just going to his main page and reading through his list of links... New Hampshire : 'A bad day for scumbags' ... a good day for humanity :); about the arrest of a pair of pedophiles or 'FBI missed it's chance'! ... "to capture Clinton-era Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick" ... found via Bsizzle. But I was going to persevere on this children's song/rhyming.

Next was Ogre's entry. Dead end. The only thing I could think of that rhymed with Zoo was Poo. And we had those in last week's KoK. And nothing rhymed well with North Carolina politics or Social Security Retirement Age. Hence, I gave up on the Candyman song.

Back to dogpile to search on children's songs and rocking chairs. All I found in my searches were rocking chairs to buy. This would not help me with Susie's entry of her in a rocking chair. Or this other carnival post she has. And she has a whole lot more.

Next I found this children's rhyme:

Five Frisky Frogs
. . .
So then there were just two.
Two little frisky geeks bathing in the dew.
(Hold up 2 fingers. Wash face and body.)
One caught a sneezy cold - AHHCHOO!
(Cover nose and sneeze loudly.)
. . .

I just couldn't resist changing the Frisky Frog poem. Then again, I love her post on Happiness and Caffeinated Joy. Change it from Pepsi to dark chocolate and I would be the same way. On the hunt!

What are little boys made of?
Snips and snails and puppy dog tails.

Unless you are Tot and then you are made of
Impish grins, fussy faces and tall tales.

And one little boy looks great in a costume! I can't believe that Contagion has such a cute boy. Or that Contagion dresses him up in costumes! Particularly if you read this post on setting off the alarm system.

Writing, writing to my good friend
stamp it, lick it, off to send

Ok, I'm better with numbers than with rhymes. I just couldn't find a good fit for the Common Room son's entry. But that's ok, because I have to point out that there is a variety of posts there, I loved the one of their dog!

And an all time favorite song:

Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday deeeaaarrrr Tara! Sally, Alex and Tara live in England and have some wonderful posts. I particularly like the one about Tara's speaking.

I just couldn't stop laughing long enough to find a rhyme for Peanut. And I could tell Mother Duck is like me when shopping when I saw this post!

One cute girl, one cute girl,
See how she runs! See how she runs!
She ran after her sister far and wide,
The sister told her that she
Is allowed to use a butter knife!
Did you ever hear such a thing in your life,
A four year old and a butter knife!

Amy has so many interesting posts, it was hard to decided which other one to share with you. But I like her story of QT and free coupons!

I have one more that I could find no good rhyme or song. Here goes my effort at it:

My son says Krap
Makes mom want to Snap.
Maybe some Soap
To give mom Hope
For no more Krap
From his Trap!

And you if you haven't checked out Bou's site in a while. You ought to go read THIS POST on what else 5 year old boys are not to say.

What are little girls made of?
Sugar and Spice and everything nice!

(Didn't think I would do the little boys and not the little girls did you?)

Unless you are Pink Ninja. Then you are made of:
Camoflauge casts and Ninja skills.

And she has a cute little boy, Dash, as well. There are some pictures of him fishing. Go check them out. Hope she wasn't planning on using those for a future KoK! ;-)

The last entry I happen to stumble upon by accident. I found THIS PICTURE of Evil Glen Reynolds. Just glad I saved it for last.

Yep. I'm done, finished. Hope you enjoy all the ambrosial, appealing, attractive, captivating, charming, cute, darling, dear, delightful, heavenly, lovable, precious kids.

So creative, VW! I'm mightily impressed! And thanks for the additional link! I'm getting a lot of grief about the Pepsi Edge...
