What’s Up with That Baby? by Raymond A. Foss

Unhappy, poopy, smelly diapers
the baby bottle in the crib.
Was she drooling or talking,
mumbling something, crawling in place…

Toys everywhere, spit-up, throw up in her hair
Trouble with her binky as she fell asleep.
Unhappy whining I came running to the room
Trying to keep her happy;
smiling, playing as she woke from her nap

Suddenly, she was teething no longer pretty or cute lying there grumpy… what was I to do?
The pull-ups must have been super human,
as she went to the bathroom, a big smile on her face!

I helped to pick her up
placing her in the stroller;
The people on our walk waving to us
The ripe smell of her small dirty diaper

She laughed a mean laugh
as she ate another tiny booger
She’s a great little sister,
even if she keeps me awake!

May 19, 2010
Written with Mrs. Proulx’s Second Grade class,
Pembroke Hill School
Pembroke, NH
“Nouns Verbs and Adjectives”
poetry presentation and exercise
