Baby Power

Babies these days are moving hard,
Brains loaded like a memory card,
Jamaican babies or the ones abroad,
Can't let them out of your sight,head-ache,Dear Lord,
Careful what you do,think they didn't catch it,
Start watching them or you are gonna live to regret it,
Children Hospital is full,I can bet it,
Long,long lines,baby mother has to sweat it,
Jump down the stairs,try pulling the plug,
Pull down the iron-board,reaching for the hot mug,
Search your dirty sneakers and mess up the rug,
And if you ever hit them,they start to carry a grudge,
Don't feed me,I want to feed myself,
I can hold the spoon,don't need your help,
One year old,big woman,big man,
And from they start to walk,push away your hand,
Want to do their own thing,like they set the plans,
Worst if down by the kinder garden,they have their own gang,
'Waa waa,gugu gaga boo boo',baby talking to a next baby,
Translated by Google,'just cry,they were made to serve us',
So we will always be on stand-by,for our little baby genius...

    Each generation seems to be getting smarter and stronger sooner! Love your poem. There's always a difficult balance between fostering independence at each age without losing the type of control a parent should have at each age for the child's safety and well being. - Gail

    Irrisistable little tykes steal our hearts then leave (finally)! What would we do without them? They do make life interesting. Love, Lizzie

    Love this!!! I don't have any yet, but this makes me want the challenge:))) I'm not sure if they get smarter and smarter, or if we stop challenging ourselves to get better. Either way, well done man! Hope the weathers tame:)

    You hit it head on... perfect picture of what happens to us all when our little rug crawlers come along... And then they get older and it's tougher yet... as we sit, watch, and worry.

    Great poem Richard. Seems like babies are in control. A radio anouncer said one day - do you you think babies are so cute and adoreable. They are bigtime manipulators. They know that all they have to do is cry and they will get what they want. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla
