SOMEONE ATE THE BABY -OH NO! NOT OUR BRIGHT EYES!!!!!!

WHAT????
THIS is a 
SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS HERE!
This is what 
THE BROTHER 
has to say!

Someone ate the baby it's rather sad to say
Someone ate the baby so
 she won't be out to play
We'll never hear her whiney cry 
or have to feel if she is dry
We'll never hear her asking 
why why why 
someone ate the baby.

Someone ate the baby it's absolutely clear
Someone ate the baby 
cause the baby isn't here.
We'll give away her toys and clothes 
we'll never have to wipe her nose
Dad says that's the way it goes, 
someone ate the baby.

Someone ate the baby, 
what a frightful thing to eat,
Someone ate the baby, 
though she wasn't very sweet.
It was a heartless thing to do,
the policemen haven't got a clue
I simply can't imagine who would go and (burp) eat the baby.
Shel Silverstein

Oh- Yeah
APRIL FOOL!

That Shel! I had not remembered that one and wondered what kind of a whacked Mother Goose rhyme that was! LOL

My favorite of Shel's goes something like this: There are too many kids in this tub. There are too many elbows to scrub. I just washed a behind that I know isn't mine. There are too many kids in this tub.

Makes me laugh every time!

Cranberry Morning said...

Donna said...

Hahahahaha! I forgot that it was April Fools Day! Cute!

Faye said...

I was wondering where that was going! I forgot it's April Fools Day!

J said...

What a perfectly cute story for today! Fits your family at this time! My favorite Shel poem - and I love them all - is the little girl who DID die after her parents did not buy her the pony she HAD to have! I'm so glad you reminded me of these fun books - digging them out for next time with the kids! Happy April Fool's Day, Diana!

Beth said...

I love Shel Silverstein. He wrote some of the songs sung by one of my favorite singes, Bobby Bare. So funny!
Bright Eyes is looking beautiful in the photo.

Patty Patterson said...

Well, I'm glad no one REALLY ate that precious girl. You had me there for a minute.

Connie said...

What a fun April fools post . . . and what adorable grandchildren :)

JennyD said...

What a fantastic photo! I'd forgotten it was April Fool's Day, too, but I sure do know Shel Silverstein. Can't help but wonder if the character Elaine Benis from Seinfeld is reading this and yelling at Shel, "Noooo, the Dingo ate cho baby!" (typed with an Aussie accent there)
I'm just getting up here; so forgiveness is necessary)
Xoxo

JennyD said...

Darn, Diana, I don't know what it is about the reply part. I "see" the button here under my name and I see it in the other sites as well. I know they're replying so don't know what it could be. We'll work on it. You're such a sweetheart. Don't feel like you have to reply to everything, I know you're there, it's ok :D
Ok, cleaning like crazy today, changing sheets, and getting a haircut all in prep for tomorrow. Cya when I can :)
xoxoxo

Pam Kessler said...

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

You sooooooooooooooooooo make me smile. And it's been ages since I thought of SS - what a funny guy.

The pic of your gson is priceless - and that little precious sleeping angel, awl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lucille said...

You're funny Diana! I got caught today. The first time in decades. I have been following Esther the Pig on You Tube and I read somewhere that Ellen Degeneres had adopted her and the article included all sorts of silly things and I believed everything. Although, I must admit I thought about it a lot and I did question a few of the things I had read. When I found out it was an April Fool's joke from Esther herself on her website when she said the adoption had fallen through because of some crazy demands they had made to Ellen, I felt so silly! But it did give me a chuckle though. I'm a good sport, after all! You should show Esther the Pig on You Tube to your grandchildren!

Red Rose Alley said...

What a delightful poem, Diana. Shel Silverstein is one of my favorites. Baby looks so precious in pink.

It's April!!!

Wanda said...

What a cute poem...And the pictures to go with it. Bright Eyes...would be yummy to eat if we could do that.

I did play a April Fool on my dearest. At breakfast I told him Molly (our Shih Tzu) was staring under the bed...upon further investigation I found a dead mouse. Wish you could have seen his face.....HaHa April Fool...

Consider It All Joy said...

Well, she is just cute enough to eat up! Fun Day :) Blessings, Cindy

Savannah Granny said...

Shelia said...

Ha! I've never heard that one before! :) Well, I'm glad no one ate that little doll! :) What a cutie pie. Yes, I do remember S&H Green stamps. It was my job to put them in the books. I'd use a damp wash cloth and press 'em down and stick them in the little books.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia;)
