‘Birth & Days of the Week’
‘Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go;
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child that is born on the Sabbath-day
Is bonny and blithe, good and gay.’

I was getting ready to do the correspondence for Tuesday. I wanted to do something different. I was looking up the meaning of Tuesday in the dictionary, on the web, etc. I threw the dictionary on the bed and said the heck with that. I am not a book person. So I started scrolling down the search page and I ran across something that I was very interested in. I don’t know if you will be or not but it is a poem about children’s qualities being born on a certain day. You know, “Monday’s child is full of face.” My husband and I were having disagreement the other night about what child had what quality. Now this shows up,hmm! But anyway, I didn’t learn this when I was kid. I don’t know if you were suppose to our not. I was interested in seeing it and I hope some of you are as well. Just don’t think I crazier, lol!

We have all learnt the days of the week as Mondays child intended but we cannot seem to remember the qualities of being being born on individual days! Sunday was traditionally referred to as the ‘Sabbath day’ so there is no specific reference to Sundays child. “Mondays child is fair of face”

Tuesdays child is full of grace,
Wednesdays child is full of woe,
