Babies Don’t Keep

I spied this adorable printable on I remember my mom had a cross stitch, with this exact poem, in our house when I was a little kid. Surrounded by seemingly endless piles of laundry, with my almost two-week old baby in my lap — these are the Supermom words I needed to hear today.

  1. I saw this exact cross stitch in my daughters closet yesterday…my mom had this in my nursery!! So weird you posted this today!! I needed it yesterday as well.

  2. My mom had this in cross stitch on our wall as well! I remember being a kid and reading it over and over. She actually still has it on her “cross stitch” wall!! Love it….thanks for posting

  3. My aunt wrote the entire poem from which this was taken about my cousin (who was her 5th child). It stil is so true after 54 years.
