THANKFUL THURSDAY and THOROUGHLY POETIC THURSDAY


THE BABY, A BOTTLE, A BEAR and A BINKY

Mom and Dad just want to sleep,
but this is a nightmare, not a dream.
As their new little baby
cries and cries, scream, scream, scream.

A warm bottle won't do it.
And a binky's no help.
As the minutes go by and little baby
continues to yelp!

They're both thinking right now
of bopping that little round head!
But Bear will tell tales on them,
see, he's snuggled there in baby's bed.

Besides, if they did that,
social services would come
and so would the cops,
ohmygawd!  They'd be done!

Then baby would be gone,
No more cries, screams, no tears,
Gone also sweet smiles and giggles
for years upon years!

No more drooly kisses, 
no more chubby armed hugs!
Reading stories, bubble baths, 
or tumbling on rugs.

So, what should they do
with this problem they face?
The same as other parents, 
all over the place ~

Baby is their gift, 
from God in heaven above.
Hold baby warm, close to the breast,
wash away tears with your love.

  5. What an adorable precious poem.....babies can definitely drive even a Mom and Dad crazy but they are so full of love and fun you just have to remind yourself when they're tiny everything is a "stage". And you get through it (and on to the next stage!). So happy to have you be a poetry partner with Angel Sammy on Thursdays!!!!

    Hugs, Pam

  13. MOL, we loved the poem! I wonder if The Human feels the same way about us when we stand in the hallway and sing the song of our people at 4:00am.

  19. Exactly! Love will get them to calm down sooner or later. That or exhaustion.

    One friend of mine said her mother always rubbed Paregoric on their gums when they were babies and would scream and scream. She said, "Mom, that's opium!" and her mom said, "Yeah, well, it worked!" No, i do not recommend it.
