Do you remember the poem Mairzy Doats?  It goes like this...

"Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, would you?"

One day years ago, when Rachel was small I was singing that to her.  She collected lambs and had a Lamzey Divey.  I finally asked my Mom, "What the heck is a Mairzy doat, anyway?"  She then informed me that it was from an old song, and what they were saying was "Mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy.  A kid will eat ivy too, wouldn't you?"  Makes sense now, huh!
