Babies Don't Keep




I hope that my child will look back on today
And see a mother who had time to play.
There will be years for cleaning and cooking
But children grow up while we're not looking.
Dusting and scrubbing can wait 'till tomorrow
For babies grow fast we learn to our sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs and dust go to sleep
I'm nursing my baby and babies don't keep.

My Mom had the first 4 lines hanging in our house growing up. :) But I'd never seen the last 4 lines until now. Love it.
