Babies Abound

Friends and family all around me seem to be raising babies, having babies, expecting babies, and even making babies with the help of modern science. All these babies got me thinking about the old nursery rhyme, and so for a little Day Zero/New Year fun, go here first and find out what day of the week you were born. Then let me know if you're indeed the correct child...

Monday's child is fair of face
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay.

As for our house, I'm supposed to be full of grace and John is loving and giving. So one is a goal and one is a reality - but what else are New Year's Resolutions for!?

  2. For other Sunday birthdays: Bonnie means happy or pretty and Blythe means a carefree spirit or light. Booya!

  3. "Thursday's child has far to go."
    I like that. It's not as entirely positive as Sunday's child. "Has far to go" sounds like a long journey. But it also implies a lot of promise. I like to think that I've got a lot of things up ahead, waiting for me.
