A Boy Is . . .
Trust with dirt on its face,
Beauty with a cut on its finger.
Wisdom with bubble gum in its
hair, and the
Hope of the future with
A frog in its pocket.
One small hand to hold in yours,
One small face to smile,
One wet kiss as he says "good-night"
One small child.
Catch the moment, put it in your heart
The years too soon will fly.
These are precious moments,
more than money can buy.
Two small arms to hold you tight,
Two small feet to run,
Two small eyes full of love for you,
One small son.
Catch the moment and put it in your heart
and never let it go.
Save it for the years to come
when (s)he, too, will know.
One small hand to hold in his
One small face to smile.
One small kiss and (s)he says "Good Night"
One small child.
I look at your cute little nose,
And how you wiggle your toes,
I love how you smile at me.
You're cute as a button, don't you agree?
I look at the darling clothes you wear
And the tiny bow in your hair.
You seem to say to me,
"I'm as cute as I can be."
You're cute as a button, yes you are,
You were sent to earth from heaven afar.
I love you, niece, (daughter) (grandaughter) hope you know.
I will always tell you so.
The day has finally come, the pain begins to reel
You never could imagine, just how this would feel!
Then when it's all over, and there's finally peace
There's this incessant crying, that doesn't seem to cease!
In between the whining, you try to catch a wink
But once again the wailing starts, so loud you cannot think!
Here's this precious bundle, that fills your heart with joy
Lying there so tranquilly, watch out he's being coy!
As soon as you sit down to eat, it's hungry he will be
And while your food grows cold and hard, he'll be spitting peas!
Now the day's so beautiful, you put him in his buggy
Suddenly you smell that smell, you best take stock in Huggies!
All of this is normal, but watch for what's ahead
'Cause it's when he gets older, that you should fear and dread!
A baby will make love stronger
Days shorter, Nights longer
Bankroll smaller, Clothes shabbier,
The past forgotten,
And the future worth living for.
With babies come toys
and a whole world of joys,
and all kinds of fun things to do...
With babies come laughter
and love ever after...
sweet dreams all come true.
A baby is cuddles and tickles on toes,
the sweet scent of powder, a kiss on the nose!
A baby is teddy bears, rattles, and pins,
meals at midnight ... giggles and grins.
When they passed out babies,
you really cleaned up...
and wiped up...
and mopped up...
and stayed up!
A sweet little treasure
sent from above,
a coo and a smile,
wrapped up in love...
on your new baby!
A brand new miracle...
..to call your own!
