NO SUBSTITUTE


Swings for arms,Bottles for breasts,Advice from the 'experts'Who think they know best.


'Binky's and monitorsAnd all sorts of clutterThink they can takeThe place of a mother.


Pre-schools and daycares,And babysitters, too,Think they can doWhat mothers should do.


Oh listen, dear motherTo words that are true -No one or nothingCan care just like you.


Your children are blessingsLoaned from above,More than money or thingsWhat they need is your love.

I have got caught up in the gadgets for babies before. But this time you will not see a swing,bouncy seat or binky at all.I did not use them much but I still did.

I am sorry to see Mom's raise their babies in plastic.(carseats that go everywhere,bouncy seats,walkers,saucers,johnny jumpers,cribs,bottles,binkys and more. Baby's want your skin! Your hugs and kisses. So I will save my house from unneeded clutter and also keep my $$ for other things.Like Chocolate (now that will make a happy momma which makes a happy baby!)

All I want for this babe is a few outfits and a good sling. (diapers too!) Beyond that is just a modern hindrance.

Ok enough of my yack....
