Limerick - CopyCats


Kids Copy

Everything we do, they like to copy too.

Same thing, if the kids don’t belong to you.

You lie, they will think it’s okay.

Swear, they repeat what you say.

Be careful, they always imitate what you do.

These images are so cute!!....they are priceless. You are so right, children learn from observing and imitating the folks around them, it's important to be on our guard. Or it may just be in the genes. :). Nice work.

Very true and funny pictures.

Kids learn a vast array of skills in their earlier age,The funny thing is they imitate their parents, even if the actions don't make sense:)
