Baby

Is Your Baby a “Good Baby?”

Is your baby a good baby?

Is he sleeping through the night?

Will he settle on his own

even after a big fright?

👶🏻

Is your baby a good baby?

Is her laughter like a chime?

That’s the only way I like them—

When they smile all the time!

👶🏼

Is your baby a good baby?

Does he cry to get his way?

Have you taught him you’re the boss

And he can’t always be OK?

👶🏽

Is your baby a good baby?

Does she tolerate the swing

Even though she’s safer in your arms

Or held close in the sling?

👶🏾

Is your baby a good baby?

Has he learned to tell the time?

Does he fit into your schedule

Every hour, line by line?

👶🏿

Is your baby a good baby?

Have you left her for a date?

If you wait too long, you’ll never leave

And it’ll be too late!

👶🏾

Is your baby a good baby?

Is it her who calls the shots?

Are you wrapped around her finger

Carrying out her master plot?

👶🏽

Is your baby a good baby?

Can he play all by himself?

My sister’s cousin’s neighbor’s mother

Read it’s good for mental health!

👶🏾

Is your baby a good baby?

Does he eat his solid food,

Even though he’s not yet ready

But rejecting would be rude?

👶🏿

Is your baby a good baby?

Does he settle on his own

All alone in the far bedroom

Since the doctor said he’s grown?

👶🏾

Is your baby a good baby…

Does she let the strangers touch?

Even though deep down she feels

that the attention is too much?

👶🏽

Is your baby a good baby?

Does he call to you from bed?

Or just lay there since he’s learned

That you’re not coming back again?

👶🏼

When you ask me if she’s good,

I will always tell you yes!

Every challenge brings us closer

And she’s perfect as she is!
