Her little creature is full of life,
Giggling joyfully in her arms,
“Hold me mommy” he’d strive,
Buttering her with sugary charms.
A moment here she checks his diaper,
And Turns around to finish her chores.
There he escapes her guarding barrier,
Up to something, he hides and prowls.
Sitting in a washer or tasting a wrapper,
Opening bottle caps, fingering switches,
Painting walls, he needs no paper!
With tiny pedals, he flees these hitches.
Mommy runs to save him from every wall,
She capers with him all day long,
Little thief proudly knows it all,
So, he smiles and snuggles where he belongs.
