Babies Don't Keep

I originally posted this on March 3, 2007 but I needed to be reminded, so I am posting it again.

When I was a baby, my Grammy shared this poem with my Mom. Now my Mom has shared it with me. I say this poem to myself everyday- especially when I get a little behind in my housework.

Cleaning and cooking can wait 'til tomorrow,
For babies grow up as we've learned to our sorrow.
So, quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep,
For I'm rocking my baby, and babies don't keep.

I had that poem hanging in my bedroom until just a year ago or so!

Those are the sweetest pictures. And I totally agree with your poetry/philosophy. God bless!

Laura said...

Yes, yes, yes!

(I suppose I shouldn't quote this as a reason to ignore the dust that's beginning to start forming a small civilization in our bedroom, right?)

Yes this is a great poem. I still use it because kids are kids forever....they turn into teens and don't want to do stuff with mom anymore.....

Oh how true that is. I am relishing the time I have with my youngest as he will most likely be my last. He is my third and I have learned the hard way just how fast time flies.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Children grow up so fast. Before you know it, they are graduating from college and getting married and you wonder where the years went. I wish I had let a few more cobwebs form and dust settle.

Indeed, they just don't keep!

Lovely moments with your babe.
Treasure every one.
