Every time we pulled into the drive way when I was a child, my Mother always said, “…home again, home again, jiggity jig.”
And so do I.
It is funny how things stick with you. Bible verses, songs, poems, and simple words from Mom.
My nieces, Jenny of MomminitUP fame, Mackenzie who’s a Doctor, Amy who was the first niece and changed our world, and my daughter Shelby all do the same.
It’s a family tradition.
It’s also a poem.
I was wondering this week where it came from, so I googled it.
Thanks, Mother Goose!
To market, to market, to buy a fat pig,
Home again, home again, jiggety-jig.
To market, to market, to buy a fat hog,
Home again, home again, jiggety-jog.
To market, to market, to buy a plum bun,
Home again, home again, market is done.
With Grandma in mind, it seems appropriate that it refers to shopping, don’t you think girls?
