"I'm rocking my baby, and babies don't keep"...?

I saw a little poem with this phrase in it in someone's siggy and don't remember who it was... but it was the sweetest poem about how the housework can wait. Who are you, mystery siggy mama? I want to remember the rest of this! I loved it!

It's not my siggy, but my mother had a cross stitch wall hanging when we were growing up that my sister now has, the poem goes..

The cleaning and scrubbing and wait for tomorrow
For babies grow up; we've learned to our sorrow
So quiet down cob webs, and dust go to sleep
I'm rocking my baby, and babies don't keep.

Re: "I'm rocking my baby, and babies don't keep"...?

Mother, O Mother, come shake out your cloth,
Empty the dustpan, poison the moth,
Hang out the washing, make up the bed,
Sew on a button and butter the bread.
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, rockabye, lullaby loo.
Dishes are waiting and bills are past due
Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peek-a-boo
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 his eyes the most wonderful hue?
Lullaby, rockaby lullaby loo.
The cleaning and scrubbing can 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 and babies don’t keep.

- Ruth Hulbert Hamilton


I love this poem also. I have it on my Facebook.

i know. my DD (4 mo) nursed for almost an hour tonight before bedtime, and as soon as I'd start thinking OMG, are you FINISHED already? this poem would run through my head and I'd just cuddle her tighter. she's growing up so fast and I just want to treasure all of the quiet moments together nursing...
