A flibbertigibbet is a whimsical thing Made of all kinds of magical stuff Like cotton balls and carpenter's glue And bits of belly button fluff They float above your room at night Protecting each kiddie from harm Good thing about flibbertigibbets They never get scared or alarmed The only reason that they exist Is to make you feel cozy and safe So you can get a good night's sleep And be all cheery when you awake A flibbertigibbet doesn't mind at all If you think her name is silly They like to see you struggle with it Till your brain's all willy-nilly What a hoot, these flibbertigibbets They're delightful to have around Makes you feel safe and warm inside Bestest pal you've ever found © Jack Ellison 2014

    Don't tell Dragon about them... He'll want one! And the penguins will want one, too... And Hubby and me, of course! I'd love to see what they can do... And if they can distract Dragon and help us get a few more winks of sleep. Well, wouldn't that be great, too! But I hope they're fire proof... Well, if they help us out here... Tell them... I'll make them some fire proof suits.
