Who Done Did It? Not Me.

Ever find a mess and ask your kids who did it and they all say “not me”?  Last year in one of our language lessons, there was a poem called “Mr. Nobody” which basically describes this very thing.

We may have a day of exchanges that goes something like:

Who made this mess?

Not me.

Who used the last of the toilet paper?

Not me.

Who spilled the water?

Not me.

Who didn’t flush?

Not me.

Who left the light on?

Not me.

Of course not. It must have been Mr. Nobody.”

Of course these are not the most terrible things in the world but teachable lessons nonetheless.  They have come to know Mr. Nobody well and we joke about it sometimes.  But since Mr. Nobody never comes back to clean it up, wipe it up, or pick it up; guess who gets to do it for him? That’s right. Mr. Nobody’s friends, “not me”.

    I read this to Bethany, and we both had a good laugh! I think that we may borrow Mr. Nobody when we have kids.

      haha. You can have Mr. Nobody. He’s not very useful around here anyway!
