Prunes for Dessert

Now that Baby Diva is eating solid food, I have to make sure she gets her prunes. Why is it that babies have so much in common with the elderly?

While serving Baby Diva her prunes, I sing her this song I made up. The verses change and new ones are added almost daily. In any iteration, this song is proof that when Baby Diva is a teenager, she will pretend not to know me. And I will now share a version with you:

I’d like a bunch
of prunes to munch.
I have a hunch
that there’s prunes for lunch.

Prunes for dessert
Prunes for dessert
Prunes for dessert
So my poo does not hurt

Prunes, oh boy!
I am not coy
Prunes are a toy
I fling with joy.

Prunes that I eat
Prunes that are sweet
Prunes that I share
With babies I meet

Oh, did you know?
Go tell your beau
Prunes help you go
when things move too slow

I eat purple goo
Then I go to the loo
What do you do?
When you have to poo?

Thank you my guest
at this prune-fest
Prunes are the best
now that’s off my chest

Prunes for dessert
Prunes for dessert
Prunes for dessert
So my butt does not hurt

Dedicated to Baby Diva, Fairy Godmother, da Godfadda and infants and parents everywhere.

    Nice! That’s an incredibly long song about prunes-you are clearly very talented.

    And when they get a little older and no longer eat things voluntarily, a little ground flaxseed sprinkled into everything does the same trick.

    DOn’t think I’m weird but I LOVE baby food fruits–even prunes taste good. Though the apricots? Heavenly! I’ll even eat the bananas, and I don’t normally like bananas. :)
