I'm making a diaper cake for my friends shower and I need some help writing a couple of cute poems. I have one I sort of like to go with the cake but I'm looking for one to go with the little basket of wipe supplies I'm also going to give her. (I'm trying to figure out how to put integrate the wipes into the cake, but I know the bottles of Dr. Bronners and such won't fit.) I thought those would look cute in a little basket with a wipe recipe and a poem.

C'mon writers, help me out! If you have a good one for the cake, let me know that too.

Thanks so much!

You're more than welcome to use any of the songs I've posted in threads over at the Diaper TP. My favorite is the Sir Mix-a-Lot one, but others seem to like the one from Greece better. Feel free to change any of the lyrics to suite he dipes that you have in the cake. They're cloth dipes, right???

Yep, they're cloth.

If you just do a search for "song" over there. I bet they'll pop up. Unless someone else was talking about songs in the diaper TP. If you want an actual poem about something specific... just give me an assignment. (PM me if I forget to check this thread to find out about a possible assignment.)

Ok, I tried this on my own. I'm not a poet by any means but I gave it my best shot. Let me know what you think.

Please be gentle, it's been a rough day.

Thanks!


WIPE POEM

Here's a recipe for a wonderful wipe wash that will make your little one feel so posh

Some tea tree oil, just a bit, is included in this little wipe kit

Some natural Lavender soap that will make you say "Yum" A little baby oil to soothe her bum.

A bunch of soft, soft wipes; remember not to flush them or they'll clog your pieps!

Most of all this gift comes from the heart, and you should be proud for doing your part!

CAKE POEM

This cake started with a dream when I heard you were expecting a little sun beam.

It grew by leaps and bounds as I wrapped prefolds round and round.

I added little goodies here and there and made it all with great care.

I hope you enjoy this diaper cake, thanks for doing it for the environments sake.

I LOVE YOUR POEMS!!! I love this idea, too! Got pics?

My only rhythmn suggestion is to remove a syllable from the very first line... maybe change 'wonderful' to 'great' or something... It took me a couple of reads on that line to get the rhyme. BUT, I'm totally stealing this idea (and your poems!).

There are two pregos in my bookgroup! HA! Now I know what to get them!
