A cloth diaper inspired poem

Oh we’ve each got these kids, yeah, who like to be fed.
And they’ve each got one end to unload it all in.
And we all love our kids, yes we love them a lot
Which is why we choose Fluff, it’s the comfiest bunch.

If we each had ten trucks we could all run amuck
Buying the fluffiest of Fluff just to fill up our trucks.
We’ve got Fluff on the brain, yes I’ll say it again,
You can join the obsession and try to refrain…

Refrain from using PayPal or credit galore
To purchase that Fluff you’re starting to hoard.
It’s those two cute cheeks we like to cover in cloth
That’s why we’re hooked in, yes, we’re Snappi’d to cloth!

So you can try to be whole, buy your sposies with care
‘Cause even the best sposie just doesn’t compare
To the fluffiest of Fluff, yes the comfiest bunch,
Which is why all the cool kids are each wearing Fluff.

I give credit to the above poem to Sandra Boynton’s book Horns to Toes and In between and my son, Buggie, whom I’ve read to so often I have the book memorized.

Elizabeth (aka Bert) is a stay-at-home-mom and contributing writer for She Thinks Media. She lives in the Twin Cities with her husband, Ben, her son Buggie, and daughter Lady Bug.  When she's not trying to convince Buggie to expand his interests beyond Thomas the Train or put his pants back on she's writing about her experiences as a mom on her blog, First Time Mom (FTM). After all, Bert maintains there's a first time for everything, even if you  have more than one child!
