The Constant Serenade


There once was a mommy
Who didn’t know what to do.
She had to hold her little guy
Or he’d scream ‘till he was blue.
Whenever she’d shower or eat
He’d sing a serenade
About little boys in overalls
On a screaming tirade.

They had three whole days together,
Just mommy and her son.
Her hopes were soon a pipe dream
Of getting anything done.
She attempted to start the laundry,
And she tried to do the dishes
But quickly learned that housework is
Against her cutie-pie’s wishes.

So she told herself
His little won’t stay,
And they went out for a walk
And snuggled together the rest of their day.

And then their last day alone dawned
All clear and sun shiny
So mommy planned for another walk
To help shrink her hinny
And she’ll snuggle in again
And smile, chuckle and laugh,
For when daddy’s home today,
SHE’S TAKING A BUBBLE BATH.

OH aren't you the poet....that was cute. Have you tried wearing him in a sling? I used a snuggley w/ my kiddos...and when middle daughter was VERY COLLICY...sp?...it was the only way to get anything done. I sure wish they had the slings when mine were young....they seem so much more secure in them.
