Hey Diddle Diddle Help Solve the Riddle

  1. The people's judge no calendar has he.
    An idle place no people to see.
  2. One paper in hand a pledge to make.
    Two hands to hold, two hearts to take.
  3. One of snips and snails, and bugs and such.
    One tender and sweet, and soft to touch.
  4. Bright eyed smiles and a striking pose.
    One little profile, and a button nose.
  5. Not one, not two, not three but four.
    To find her next then add two more.
  6. This closing door, this mess to fix.
    This paper thin, a clock that ticks.
  7. Month eight add two the best to hope.
    Decree the man untie this rope.
  8. A trip to plan a plan to date.
    Three hearts to join a bond to make.
  9. Count with me week 6 times 2.
    A mother's prayer we make it through.
  10. Hope for the day, the joy, the end.
    From home to home and back again.
Can you solve the riddle? It might not be as hard to solve, as it was to write the rhyme. Take a guess and I promise I'll reveal it all in time.

Does it mean that you are staring at pictures of two button noses but must now wait until Oct???
If so, congratulations!!! and I am sorry for the wait...

Okay Valerie,

I’m going to try and guess the riddle. You received your referral for your two little ones and a court date was scheduled but it did not pass. You will have to wait until October when the court opens again. If that’s the case, I pray that all goes well and you will have your two button nose children home with you soon.

Is it a 4 year old boy and 6 year old girl? Didn't pass court in August but hopefully in early October.

Congratulations.

A girl of six, a boy of four
Referrals in hand, but alas no more

No progress now, courts close for awhile
But pictures you have to bring a smile

Your time will come, faster than you think
So stock up now on blue and pink

:)

That was my guess too! That you got a referral for a girl and boy but have to wait until Oct for court. Oh, how exciting!!!

That was a very brilliant little riddle. I think too that there is a 4 year old boy and 6 year old girl. Court is closed so now an October date is hoped for! I hope we are all on the right track!

Congratulations are in order????
