Dear son

Too big for his britches, too small for his cap
Just the right size for mama's lap
He keeps me in stitches, the things he will say
"Oh let him stay little", I repeatedly pray
A little firecracker with ***** to spare
He walks in the house and strips down bare
Not a single piece of clothing, not even a sock
Demands to be naked, stubborn as a rock 
Bath time is the best if you'r ready for some fun
Not a dry spot on the wall by the time he is done
There is something about that boy that tugs at my heart
An emptiness inside, when we are apart 
His little blonde curls and sweet little face
A perfect little person, thanks to God's glory and grace
I love that he needs me and doesn't want me to leave
Lord knows I need him too, more than I need to breathe

Love this great poem. It so expresses my own view of my son Justin, except he never likes to strip off his clothes. Great write, great rhyme and very smooth flow. A7 and adding this gem to my fav list here.

My grandson is nearly 8 months old and starting to show that spunk and stubbornness. The bathroom walls are starting to get splashed. I can relate to this poem. Every element describes my feelings about my grandson. Well done.
