Lynda wrote looking for help with a rhyme…
I hope that you can help me with an old rhyme of sorts. It is spoken softly as to calm a child said while making small circles on a child’s skin and then traveling up and starting all over. We can only remember part of it, this is what we can recall:
“Round a bit, round a bit, round a bit” repeating as often as you make the small circles with your finger on the child’s skin.
Then while traveling up the arm or leg or etc… “Up a bit, up a bit”, stopping and starting the small circles again.
We seem to remember something about a “wee little mouse”.
Does any of this ring a bell to you? The lady who used to do this was of Polish decent if that helps.
If anyone can help with this rhyme, please let us know in the comments below.
