OODLES OF NOODLES
“Don’t dawdle!” said a Doodlebug
To her big brood of Doodles,
“Come eat your supper while it’s hot,
I’ve made your favorite – noodles!”
But all the Baby Doodlebugs
Cried “Feed them to the poodle!
We’d rather have some cake or pie,
We’re sick of noodle foodle!”
“Well, well …” said Daddy Doodlebug,
Winking at Mommy Doodle,
“Instead of food that makes them ugh,
Why not make Noodle Strudel?”
“Hurray!” cried all the baby bugs!
“Make some, and we’ll eat oodles!”
Now some days Mommy Doodlebug
Makes different noodle soups,
Or ties the noodles into knots
And calls them “Noodle Loops”.
They never know, from meal to meal,
What mom’ll name her noodles,
So when they all sit down to sup,
They’re always in good moodles.
(And all because their mom and dadLearned how to use their noodles!)
