Just days before I was reminded of a piece once listed in Dear Abby.
Healthy children make lots of noise.
They sing, they shout, they belly-laugh, they fight, they bang things together, they bounce things, they cry, they scream, they make lots of noise.
They play loud.
Prayer for a Tired, Irritable Parent
God, bless my healthy children.
Give me new ears, ears that hear the music of their noise.
Give me new understanding, understanding that doesn't crush their spirits with my intolerance and oversensitivity.
Give me new peace, a peace that is grateful for the sounds created by healthy children.
She and I both giggled at the boisterous little chicks as they zoomed and zipped about the barnyard instead of demurely peeping like the other chicks. My daughter laughed as they scratched artistic masterpieces and complex diagrams in the dust instead of just pecking for worms, and especially enjoyed the chicks' irresistible interest in the inner workings of the farmer's tractor. Meanwhile, I identified with the outward support (as well as the inward concern) of the mother Hen, who's repeated conversations with all the other barnyard animals always went like this: "Make them be good!" "They ARE good."
Though the book uncannily seemed to speak to both my daughter and me, it's an enjoyable and funny story with vibrantly animated illustrations that will appeal to any little boy or girl. We highly recommend it to them and their parents!

Very odd story about some rebellious, inquisitive, tough chicks. They get into mischief and don't listen to their parents. Hmmm may sound familiar to most parents. Read morePublished 16 months ago by betsey23
