This one's for you, Mad Momma !!


This post is for The Mad Momma - who is expecting her second baby later this week.

This wonderful idea of an online baby shower for Mad Momma was the brainchild of Surabhi. What a lovely thought !!

When I thought about this post, Mad Momma, what came to mind instantly was the poem "Baby Feet" by Edgar A. Guest.

The verses, the phrases drip with feelings and emotions ever so sweet and exemplifies just about everything babies stand for.

So, here's to you and to little Baby Bean :-)



Baby Feet

Tell me what is half so sweet
As a baby's tiny feet.
Pink and dainty as can be,
Like a coral from the sea?
Talk of jewels strung in rows,
Gaze upon those little toes,
Fairer than a diadem,
With the mother kissing them!

It is morning and she lies
Uttering her happy cries.
While her little hands reach out
For the feet that fly about.
Then I go to her and blow
Laughter out of every toe;
Hold her high and let her place
Tiny footprints on my face.

Little feet that do not know
Where the winding roadways go,
Little feet that never tire,
Feel the stones or trudge the mire,
Still too pink and still too small
To do anything but crawl,
Thinking all their wanderings fair,
Filled with wonders everywhere.

Little feet, so rich with charm,
May you never come to harm.
As I bend and proudly blow,
Laughter out of every toe,
This I pray, that God above,
Shall protect you with His love,
And shall guide those little feet
Safely down life's broader street.

~ Edgar A. Guest


MM, here's wishing you all that and lots lots more.
Sending Hugs and Prayers your way for a safe delivery and a speedy recovery.
God Bless !!
