Hush, Mom and Dad, donít panic yet!
No need to worry, or to fret.
Relax and I am sure youíll see,
How youíre supposed to care for me.

I know that I seem very small,
But I wonít break and thatís not all.
You kept me safe for nine months long,
And now I know where I belong.

And when I keep you up all night,
Try to avoid another fight.
Remember you get cranky too,
So let forgiveness see you through.

And please donít wrinkle up your nose,
I didnít mean to soil my clothes!
Remember you make messes too!
Itís just a natural thing to do.

And when you just canít figure out,
What all my fussing is about.
Remember you get lonely too,
I might just need a hug from you.

And if you want to be on time,
Try and recall this nursery rhyme:
Remember Jack-be-nimbleís plight.
How rushing never turned out right!

Hush, Mom and Dad, donít run and hide!
Youíll find that God will be your guide.
So just enjoy the Baby Scene
For soon Iíll turn into a teen!
