Here's a rhyme in Gujarati we use even today:

Mahi mari dai
Patle besi nai
Patlo gayo khasi
Mahi padi hasi!

It is used while bathing, so you add the name of your own child.

The translation doesnt quite have the same effect...but here goes:
Mahi is my good baby
Sits on a patla (wooden stool) and has a bath
The stool slips
Mahi bursts out laughing!

And they do laugh. :-)
