Baby Limerick A Day With H.J.And Other Silly Poems
Grand Children Are Amazing
I am smitten with two little people who amuse me every time I see them. Actually they amuse me for days after I see them. They amaze me so much I face time them when I haven't seen them for a couple of days. They live across town. Sometimes they are pleasant , sometimes they are not. Sometimes I have to bit my tongue and let their parents guide and direct them the way I would not. Last week I pulled grandparent's prerogative for the first time in three years. I won't do so very often.
Here are some of my silly thoughts about these little people. H.J. is the eldest and R.A. is about 20 months younger than her brother.
When H.J. Was Just Weeks Old
Walking through Costco
ten feet off the ground
pushing the stroller round and round.
Baby fingers and
baby toes makes me giggle
then write prose.
Hey hey hey
and sounding that way.
Staring at H.J.
Phone rings can't talk
can hardly walk
Walking through Costco
ten feet off the ground there goes H.J.
food court bound.
Baby eyes and baby nose
Staring at H.J.
Walking through Costco ten feet off the ground
we're homeward bound.
Tireless Has Lost Her Mind! No She Became A Grandmother
Until my brother saw me with H.J., he would never believe I would admit to acting silly. He has three grand children. So he doesn't tease me about being goofy. There is something about becoming a grandparent that sends all sensibility out the window.
"Guck, guck", says the duck
"Baah, baah," says the lamb
"Mooooo, mooo," says cow
The pig and horse just smile
Eighteen months toddling here running there
Wiggle, jiggle and giggle
Drama to follower
Splish splash give the garden a bath
Grammy and H.J.enjoy garden bath .
Conversation; H.J. And Unkle Unkle
For nearly a year H.J. always called one of his uncles," Unckle-Unckle" One day while driving with this particular uncle this conversation commenced. "H.J. why do you always call me unckle-unckle? Do you know my name? "
"What is my name?"
"Good, now what's my name?"
"Unckle-Unckle, Aaron, the boy"
Three year old 1, 20 year old 0.
Unbelievable H.J Is Four
Four, how could the baby who made me giggle be four? He still makes me giggle.
Christmas he got a Kindle fire. His only had experience with IPads , tablet was a new word for him. He called it an omelette for sometime.
A few days ago he walked up to a friend of ours and started telling her about the new carpet they had at his house. What four year old talks to people about their new carpet?
Baby RA Arrived Awhile Ago
We know little about girls in our household, but we are learning.
She is a girl with few words
She is a girl with an opinion
She is a girl.
Baby Ra how so do you act so girly with other little girls?
I didn't know girls came with a purse gene.
You dance and prance
While carrying your purse
R. A. has always been a talker. We just didn't know what language she was telling us her stories. Now she speaks English.
Baby RA, now big sister and little sister
Watch out misters I'm the sister and I have an opinion.
RA's Quote of the month(28 months old). When she is asked if she wants something, if she does her reply, "I sure do".
While grabbing something out of her elder brothers hand, "You Share".
RA does two according to the textbook, "No"
Not a quote but certainly a statement. When being told it was time to leave the barn and the new kids only hours old, RA sat in the mud in front of the barn door. Grammy felt like a policeman removing a protester.
R.J. So Sweet
HJ didn't eat solid food until he was pretty old. R.A. started a little younger. At five months R.J. started to cry every time some one ate something. R.J is a eating boy. According to his Unckle- Unkle, " R.J. is a baby of the people". He smiles at everyone until till he is hungry. He sits and watches and watches. Put him in a room full of people he's happy. Put him alone with toys he is happy. Put him in his car seat and he screams.
R. J. is very easy. But he is a push over only when it comes to standing. When his brother or sister take things from he tells them, what for, in whatever language it is her speaks currently.
