  • I remember both the days and times for both of my kids. My oldest was born on a Saturday, but according to the saying, he should have been born on a Wednesday. My second was born on a Tuesday, but he should have been born on a Sunday.

  • My children were born on Wednesday and Friday respectively, and yes the poem fits them perfectly.

  • Baby #1 Wed----------- Nope not true
    Baby#2 Tues---------- Nope not true
    Baby 1 and 2 should switch days, then it'd true
    Baby#3 Mon----------I can see how that would be true
    Baby#4 Wed---------And again, Nope!

  • lol well at least now i know i'm not crazy about remembering what day of the week my babies were born!

  • I do remember.
    DD, 10 years old, born on Saturday.
    DS, just shy of 5 years old, born on a Thursday.
    Both match their day sayings, but the sayings are vague enough to fit.

  • My daughter was born on a Wednesday, and I think it's kind of true for her. My son was born on a Thursday, and he may have far to go, but he's come a VERY long way!!!

  • Both my girls were born on a Thursday and they've been back and forth across the Atlantic at least 8 times.

  • No, neither of mine fit.

  • Baby #1 was Saturday, hard to say yet if he is a hard worker. My husband is for sure, so maybe he'll take after his dad.
    Baby #2 was Tuesday, maybe she'll become full of grace later, right now she's in her terrible twos for sure. She was really sweet up until now though.
    Baby #3 was Wednesday. He's not full of woe at all, he's a very happy baby so far.
