Day 2 - Big Thank you! :-)


Bad days happened all along ,with

Bratty kiddo's barbaric ways!

Bald, the head was close to becoming,

Bleak was the time, slowly crawling.

Beckoning strength, I keep the ball in a roll.

Brimming with stress, tears I control,

Bumpy was the ride, life was upside.

Boy, I wished kids came with a 'user guide'.

Blind faith kicked in, I sincerely prayed

Baby, I hoped she blissfully played.

Banishing aside her intent to torture,

Binding me to play like a toddler!

But finally, the Almighty answers,

Blesses me with a boon of fun and laughter.

Baby sitter Barney comes to rescue

Baby Bop and  BJ follow cue.

Blue or purple, I really don't care

Bring the joy on my baby's face.

Bumping and jumping, singing some rhymes

Bellyful laughs resonate the times.

Beloved Barney, with the bright purple dress,

Banished the mommy's deep distress.

Brand me a bad-mom with zero parenting skills

Barney was the hero that took away my chills.

Brave, you all are - Buddies in need!

Bless the banter with your kindly read! :-D


(Sorry for the awkward chopping and artistic liberties - I truly intended to blog my long overdue gratitude to Barney while trying to make sense of the baloney!)
