Spoonful of Sugar from Mary Poppins: Good Advice for Everyone

Adults Need this advice, too.  From my Children’s site:   http://childrenandteensstoriestomotivateandinspire.com
Nn the movie, Mary Poppins, the Banks’ children are learning that parents gave tough decisions.  Children have to study at school.  Parents get sacked and have to find new jobs. Students are in hospitals, have no homes or food.  They really need support.
 What Mary is saying is NOT ‘put a spoonful of sugar in your mouth – every time life gets hard.  That would be very bad for your teeth.
Try to say “NO” to taking sugar.   What Mary is saying is SWEETEN” task by doing something that is fun – and the work gets done.

 

In every job that must be done
There is an element of fun
You find the fun and snap!
The job’s a game
And every task you undertake
Becomes a piece of cake
When something is said to be a ‘piece of cake,’ it means it is easy to do
A lark! A spree! It’s
very clear to see that
A Spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
The medicine go down-wown
The medicine go down
Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
In a most delightful way
A robin feathering his nest
Has very little time to rest
While gathering his bits of twine and twig
Though quite intent in his pursuit
He has a merry tune to toot
He knows a song will move the job along – for
A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
The medicine go down-wown
The medicine go down
Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
In a most delightful way
(so may be like the Robin, you can sing, dance, whistle or put on music as your spoon full of sugar)
If you wave your arms around bees might think you want to kill them.  I have lifted bees out of swimming pools and NEVER  got stung ONCE
The honey bee that fetch the nectar
From the flowers to the comb
Never tire of ever buzzing to and fro
Because they take a little nip
From every flower that they sip
And hence (And hence),
They find (They find)
Their task is not a grind.
 (So sometimes even the busy bee needs to stop and think and take a short break.  Organization keeps us from panicking.  Use a calendar – plan and work ahead.  Don’t leave things to the last minute.
Ah-h-h-h-h-h-h-h-h-h-h ah!
