keeping me busy


these two are keeping me busy. no one feels quite so good around here. there is alot of holding and cuddling going on which i dont mind at all.

I hope my children look back on today
and remember a Mom who had time to play
There will be years for cleaning and cooking
But children grow up when we are not looking
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow
Cause babies grow fast, we learn to our sorrow
So settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep
I'm rocking my baby, and babies don't keep
"Song for a Fifth Child" by Ruth Hulburt Hamilton
