Craziest Time Under the Bottle

Scene beneath is utterly true Veracious (ridiculous) account Told by me from baby eye view, - Utterances she was without Eighth day in the cold bright realm, hungry again Feeds feature foremost! Bundled snug in my Grandma's rhythmic arms, grizzling kept at bay Lovely Mummy eagerly took chance to shower Unconcerned by her absence Have fresh bottle of expressed breast milk " Hungry, darling Possum?" Grandma coos, getting comfy on the lounge Gaze eyed, flared nostril enticed, elastic lips pursed I'm ravenous! Now! Lain awkwardly on Gran's lap, while she softly curses " ..... Get this lid off, if, how ... " Sprawled hands clasp my face - what's causing delay? - I'll chat when I'm twice the size! Tedious minutes of empty tummy lid wrestling pass us Hollers supersede grunts Jiggling knees threaten to chasm as she concentrates Splashed suddenly, a solitary drop of nourishment dissolves in my wailing throat Blinked away white curtain showcases Gran's stun Milk quickly cools on my back Hesitant yelled confessions to shampoo lather Mama cause more curses, taps off Towel wrapped, she dresses red faced me in dry clothes Grumbles over Gran's innacuracy Guaged bottle lid's removal happens best when tipped up! - You don't need to teats me how to drink!!
