The mystery piece


Well, it's Friday, so that means today's post is for Jacob, as you can very well see by the photo. It's a picture of the puzzle we've been putting together all week. He's gotten quite good at and can even piece it together upside down.

Speaking of piece, he left one flipped over. No wonder it doesn't fit in its space.

Oh ... I know why he did that; he wants you to guess what is on the "mystery piece." But, since I don't want to give it away just yet, here is some filler copy to give you time to think before panning down to the answer pic.

For those of you unfamiliar with the "Five Little Monkeys," this is how the rhyme goes:

Five little monkeys jumping on the bed.
One fell off and bumped his head.

Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,

"No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"


Four little monkeys jumping on the bed.
One fell off and bumped his head.

Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,

"No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"


Three little monkeys jumping on the bed.
One fell off and bumped his head.

Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,

"No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"


Two little monkeys jumping on the bed.
One fell off and bumped his head.

Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,

"No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"


One little monkey jumping on the bed.
She fell off and bumped her head.

Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,

"No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"


Okay, now that you've scrolled down past the monkey lyrics, here is the missing piece. It's a duck, which Jacob set up next to his stuffed duck.

Did you know there is a similar song about ducks?

Five little ducks went out to play,
Over the hill and far away.

Mother duck went, "quack, quack, quack,"

And four little ducks came running back.


Okay, I'll spare you the rest. Time to make my smoothie. I'm keeping it simple with spinach, oranges, bananas and a big scoop of One Lucky Duck chocolate truffle butter. Yummy.

Happy Friday :-)

Tell Jacob I enjoy his Friday morning pictures, and I have to admit, you made me laugh with "Okay, now that you've scrolled down past the monkey lyrics" - Howda know? :0)

And I love the swirl by the way, I actually saw a "lemon swirl" in the grocery store yesterday, and I thought "hmm, I can make it heathier"!

Thanks for giving me that! Hope to enjoy one this weekend with the kids!

I just recently checked out from the library "5 Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree" with my 2 year old so oh too familiar. Didn't know they had puzzles too - cute! If I have to guess what the missing puzzle piece is I would say.... he is holding a bottle of shampoo? Maybe I can win a Rawdorable shirt if i win? he he
Still pushing for those cute shirts! :)
Have a nice weekend

Oh Kathy, I'll definitely pass on the message. It makes him feel important :-)

Lemon swirl? Now that's worth trying.

Rosie, I'm happy to hear someone appreciated the duck song.

Rawleen, those monkeys are definitely a hit in my household. There is even a board game, which Jacob got two of for Christmas.
