beware of the baby!
cries so loud they wake the dead
razor like jaws while they’re teething
diapers so dirty they stink up the bed
beware of the toddler!
tiny feet run so fast
body so small can eat so much
tantrums now seem to infinitely last
beware of the kindergartner!
energy for days
beware of the pre teen!
…need i say more
Joys and worries of parenthood! it never ends. Good humor throughout.
Nice how each stanza/stage in life winnowed down.
