Can Mistakes Happen on a Good Day?

We were looking at social stories today and came across this lovely poem:


Can mistakes happen on a good day?

I guess it’s possibly true.

With so many mistakes that people can make,

It’s likely we’ll make a few.


So, do mistakes happen every day?

If people wake up, then yes.

But what if they all were to stay in their beds?

Well, that’s a mistake, I guess.


Can mistakes happen on a good day?

It seems that maybe they do.

People make mistakes and still they say,

“Yes, I had a good day, and you?”
