Monsieur Monster Of The Two (and a half) Teeth

7 Oct

In California a wee monster roams
Waiting to creep into all of your homes
Flat of foot and frugal in teeth
I can assure you his name isn’t Keith

Explorer by day, hell-raiser by night
This shoe-chomping tot is quite a sight
In the home of the brave and the land of the free
He takes liberation seriously

Screeches and wails
To be released
Tries to eat snails
And every odd beast

He knows how to charm
From here to LA
Turns off your alarm
Then makes his foray

Don’t you be fooled
By the coos and the smiles
His parents are ruled
Until they’re slumped into piles

Before his appearance, Mummy would dine
Without the backdrop of a ceaseless whine
How must silence feel, she’d love to know
But when it’s quiet, it’s alas and oh no!

Now here’s the queer thing, this monstrous child
Makes Mummy’s heart sing and her hair look wild
She’ll take no sleep, she’ll embrace a mess
He makes her weep, she will confess
But this ball of Sun, every inch of her heart,
He’s the One, Prince BurpinFart. ❤

    The joys of motherhood am glad you enjoy
    Because, oh-so-soon, they turn so coy
    The travails, they fade
    Happy memories made
    To be relived in dotage when they all fly!

    Such a sweet sweet ode to your li’l one! As a new mom myself, I can totally relate to falling in love with my little one all over again every single day 🙂

    Aunty G: Oh he’ll fly, I bet
    But I’m not ready yet
    A few more years
    Of tantrums and tears
    And then I’ll be all set. 😉

    DFSK: Isn’t it the best feeling in the whole world? 😀 Hope you are doing splendidly!

    Deepa: Oh we can’t have him stealing Kim K’s thunder by actually breaking the internet, can we?

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
