The Crybaby

The Crybaby

Oh how loudly, oh how clearly
we can hear you blow your top.
Baby boy, we love you dearly,
but the screaming has to stop!

If you're going to wake up grouchy,
maybe you should stay asleep.
Your shrieks make our ears feel ouchy.
Can't you pitch them low and deep?

Must you be so doggone noisy?
Please oh please give it a rest.
Try to be a bit more joysy
when we pluck you from your nest.

You depend on us completely,
so you'd better treat us right.
If you must cry, do it sweetly,
or we may go out on strike!


Can you believe I'm writing about the happy little guy on the right?
I think it's safe to say that he wears his emotions on his sleeve, glad or sad.
(Of course, he and his little sister also happen to be the cutest babies ever!)

I'm sure you agree. =)
