Hellos and Goodbyes
Liam Elwood and I started a little game and it has grown. Â It is the typical word exchange as he leaves my office and heads to the preschool. Â Now Olivia is verbal enough to join in. Â We have come up with several different rhymes to say hello and goodbye. Super fun!
Oh hi, firefly!//Whatâ€™s the tale nightingale?//Whatâ€™s the word hummingbird?//Whatâ€™s the story morning glory?//Whatâ€™s shakinâ€™ Bacon?//Whatâ€™s the deal lemon/banana peel?//How now brown cow?
See you later, alligator // After while, crocodile // Bye-bye, butterfly // Give a hug, ladybug // Toodle-oo, kangaroo // AdieuÂ cockatoo // Toodles, Poodles // See ya soon you big baboon.// See ya soon little raccoon.// Time to go buffalo. //Take care teddy bear.// Take care, polar bear //Have a good day blue jay. //Out the door dinosaur. //Hang loose mongoose. //MaÃ±ana iguana// Hasta manana piranha //Leaving now, woodsy owl//So long, King Kong// Be sweet, parakeet //Thatâ€™s fine Porcupine//Cheerio Hippo // So long ding dong //Pip Pip catnip or spaceship// Adios Amigos or Hippos //Farewell, bluebell //Fare-thee-well, you gnu gazelle //Chop Chop Lollipop// Sayanora Striped Zebra// Can’t stay, Sting Ray. //Can’t be late, Primate.//Gotta run, DragonÂ or Skeleton//Gotta go, Tangelo //Gonna scat, kitty cat //Hop Hop lamb Chop// Till then, Penguin //Kick it Cricket //Head on out, rainbow trout//.
