Word-High July: Pagsamo


Are we there yet?

Can we get out now?

I wanna we wanna we wanna wee.

I’ll wet my pants?

If we don’t stop soon I’m gonna do it!

Can I get one? Please?

I want one!

Give me a go!


My mother used to sum us up so well

When we complained, asked too often

We’d get this chorus from her:

‘I wanna wanna wanna.

It’s all you kids can say

So give me a break.’


We never did, nor my kids

The grandkids have inherited the same traits

I think it’s in our DNA.

    It is the biggest rule of childhood: Keep after Mama until you get it. 🙂 The second rule being to stay just out of reach of her hand while you’re pestering her.
    You did a fine job with this word.
    Have a blessed weekend.
