There have been several baby announcements on the bloggernacle in recent weeks. I congratulate all of these families and wish them the best.
I have had four children of my own, and have spent several late nights, pacing the floor, with a screaming baby. On one of these nights I composed a poem that I have come to call ‘A Father’s Lullaby’. I think it captures much of the feeling of a tender parent during such nights. I hope you enjoy this poem, and that some of you parents might sing it to your lovely infants as you attempt to comfort them. I am pleased to share this with you.
A Father’s Lullaby

Go to sleep,
You little creep!
