Wild One: A 1st Birthday Celebration for Our Party Animal

One.

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

We were warned that it will go fast.

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

No joke.

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

Babies don’t keep.

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

But they always stay your babies,

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

no matter how much they eat,

or how fast they grow up.

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

What they don’t say…

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

is how stinkin’ fun it will be,

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

that their joy is contagious,

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

and your cheeks will hurt from smiling so much.

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

They don’t tell you that you will go completely out of your way

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

to give them your best and the best of everything,

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

even if they don’t need it.

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

You will do anything possible

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

to show them just how much you love them,

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

even if they’ll never fully understand, and that’s completely ok with you,

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

because you would do it all one million times over again

Wild One: A first birthday celebration for our party animal

without thinking twice.

Song for a Fifth Child by Ruth Halbert Hamilton

Mother, oh mother, come shake out your cloth!
Empty the dustpan, poison the moth,
Hang out the washing and butter the bread,
Sew on a button and make up a bed.
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 her eyes the most wonderful hue?
(Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo.)

Oh, cleaning and scrubbing will 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. Babies don’t keep.
