“What does a day mean? Compare your family or friends to the days of the week. Who is a Monday? A Friday? A Sunday?”

One of my favorite ‘Nursery Rhymes’ is The Mondays Child Poem. The words and lyrics of Mondays child poem are used to associate children with the pattern and different names to the days of week. Mondays child is a very popular poem but the actual words of Mondays child are not well known! We have all learnt the days of the week as Mondays child intended but we cannot seem to remember the qualities of being born on individual days!

Mondays child is fair of face,
Tuesdays child is full of grace,
Wednesdays child is full of woe,
Thursdays child has far to go,
Fridays child is loving and giving,
Saturdays child works hard for his living,
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

I was a Sunday child, a bit of bonny, blithe, and gay, and I was a goodie-two-shoes while growing up, but now it seems the bonny, blithe, and gay has left me. I’m still a bit of a goodie-two-shoes.
My oldest daughter, and two of my grandchildren, were born on Tuesdays. My oldest daughter and my oldest granddaughter are full of grace. The other one is too young to tell yet.
My youngest daughter was born on a Thursday and has far to go.
Sadly, I can’t remember what day my other grandchildren were born on, but I will find out. This time I will write it down and place it somewhere that I want forget it.

  1. I remember being kind of frightened by what was said of “Thursday’s child.” Funny thing is I turned out to be a homebody and stick in the mud. (Although I did get to the UK twice.). There are other ways to go far. I don’t feel I have, though.
