First off, I would like to apologize for my lack of post yesterday. I was gone from morning until night and I was really tired. So, I'm posting for "U" today instead.


I've been learning to tie my shoes,
But every time I've tried
The loose knot that I think I've made
Just seems to come untied.

The thought of tying laces
Makes me really tired.
The inventor of the bow
Was really uninspired.

Velcro was the best invention
Ever known to man.
If I could have those kind of shoes
It would be really grand.

For now I'm in a temper
And throw my shoes off to the side,
Because I can't stand
For my shoes to come untied.

-Marjorie Napier-



I really loved this, I could imagine perhaps a child trying to do it's shoes up.
Very imaginative.

I like this! I may have to stash it somewhere to pull out when my little boy starts working on tying shoes! :) (As if I'd be able to find it again...) Really cute!

did you see my post dedicated to you for the letter B, I did a character like you do, let me know what you think. I like this poem and I am in the process of teaching my son how to tie as we speak, this week.

@ Yvonne- Thanks, I've been through this a few times. It seemed fitting.

@ Melody- Boys tend to get frustrated easily, but my daughter really got upset when she couldn't figure it out.

@ Tami- Does it bring you back?

@ Mom- You think everything I do is great.

@ Whisper- I did! It was really great. I think I posted a comment on that particular post. I think it's great you are teaching your son to tie his shoes. It takes some patience.
