"There's Too Many Kids in This Tub"

Grandma Tucker has had this poem on her bathroom wall for as long as I can remember.
Original credit to Shel Silverstein.

There's too many kids in this tub

There's too many elbows to scrub.
I just washed a behind that I'm sure wasn't mine--
 There's too many kids in this tub.


Mama Denton's version:
Never too many kids in this tub.
Never too many angels to scrub.
I just washed a behind
That will forever be mine--
Treasured memories are made in this tub.

Linking up to Jenny Matlock's T Alphabe-Thursday.

  9. I just love photos of your kids :) They are just too adorable. I can just feel my ovaries telling me that it's time I have more kids. Oh, the cuteness! I don't know if my heart can handle this :)

    I absolutely love how Evie was trying to do the "V" sign like her brothers. That's just too cute :)
