From Ethan B. Ruben, M.D., FAAP< Pediatrician, and
Marion B. Runcan, Ed.D. Special Education Consultant

We are a husban and wife team who run a Saturday AM Clinic for the evaluation of children with special educational needs. We are looking for ideas for a Logo for this project. The term "Saturday's Child" ame to mind, but I cannot remember the source. I believe "Friday's Child" is full of grqace. Anyone out there with ideas to prom,ote this project. Its a private endeavor of ours, but we're in it mainly as a community service in a state and town which can certainly use help with services for children with special needs.

I'm new to this network, but look forward to any response.

Ethan and Marion (Duncan) Ruben

This may not be of any help, but I think you refer to the old "at least 100 years" piece of doggerel that I was exposed to as a boy about 70 years ago.

Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace.

Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go.

Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child must work for a living.

But the child that's born on the Sabbath day
Is fair and wise and good and gay.

Seems typing isn't your forte'. Better stick to medicine.

"Seems typing isn't your forte'. Better stick to medicine."

And is typing your forté, Mr. Becker? I ask because I'm not sure why you added the odd apostrophe...
