one of *those* babies

oh, baby yum...
you're gonna be one of those babies, aren't you?
One of those babies from the mythical land of happy babies -
who sleeps when mama needs rest,
who smile crazily at a gentle breeze,
who burp mightily without prompting.
Don't you hear those rumours in babyland about the squeaky wheel getting the grease?
Aren't you worried about missing out on Your Fair Share?
Don't your little discomforts merit the occasional squeak and squawk?
But Yum,
you are teaching mama a valuable lesson...
Maybe you won't remember being such a happy little baby when you grow up - but i will remember my happy little son - & the way that you challenged me to be a joyful contented mama.
