    peaceful parenting: Babies Don't Keep

  • Rebecca Spooner

    Mother, O' Mother, come shake out your cloth, Empty the dustpan, poison the moth. Hang out the washing, make up the bed, Sew on a button and butter the bread. Where is the mother whose house is so shocking? She's up in the nursery, blissfully rocking. Oh, I've grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue, Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo. Dishes are waiting and bills are past due, Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek - peekaboo. The shopping's not done and there's nothing for stew, And out in the yard there's a hullabaloo. But I'm playing Kanga and this is my Roo. Look! Aren't his eyes the most wonderful hue? Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo. The cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow, But children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow. So quiet down cobwebs; Dust go to sleep! I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep. ~ Ruth Hulbert Hamilton

WOW I've never heard it said like this, but I so get it, You can have every plan in the world in your head of what you're going to do after that baby is born, but until it arrives and you hold it you don't truly know what you're going to do!

"M" is for 'Mother' (on mood-elevating pharmaceuticals, evidently) ~ Vintage Children's ABCs Flash Card

Love the quote, not crazy about the font. Looks awesome with a yellow room (pooh and honey colored)

A Mothers Prayer UMMMMM... Let's say this is one of the best things I've read. For all Mothers...... You MUST read this.!!!

I can only hope that someday my daughter and I can have the same relationship that I'm so blessed to have with my mom. #BestFriends I would do anything for my mom, love her more than anything.

Oh.Em.Gee. I love. I once had a man tell me that it must suck to have to carry a baby because you can't eat or drink whatever you want...I told him i bet it sucks to know that he will never be able to feel such life inside his body...

Sweet. Another pinner wrote the following comment, a change I'd also support: "I like this but I would ammend the beginning to 'This is the part of your sweet little story where your pages meet mine...' Validate their life and relationships before they met you.

I could frame my old sheet music and put it on the wall in our music room! Success!

Love this! Reminds me of my boys...who says you can't love more than one man at a time... I have a husband, 2 sons, and one grandson!

This is a good thing for me to have read. Baby blues hitting me real hard these days. I pretty much just feed her, cry, and go to work. feeding her is the only part that feels important. :/.
