1. Morning Sickness

By Anastasiia Chepinska on Unsplash

I don't feel so well

Every morning up it comes

Still, I flush with pride

2. Unwelcome Advances

By Tai's Captures on Unsplash

Why do strangers think

It’s okay to touch me there?

I should call a cop

3. Overdue Haiku

By Charles Deluvio on Unsplash

Your room is ready

Your toys and clothes are waiting

How about it, kid?

4. Newborn

By Jakob Owens on Unsplash

What are you thinking?

Are you even thinking yet?

I won’t know for years

5. Mother Mystified

By Eddie Kopp on Unsplash

"Brontosaurus, Ma!"

Chubby finger points to toy

Where'd he learn that word?

6. Adolescent Ouchy

By Maria Lysenko on Unsplash

Not so long ago

In your eyes, I did no wrong

Now you know better

7. It's Your Turn Now

By Vladimir Soares on Unsplash

Won't stop crying, huh?

Sleep when the baby's sleeping

Pick your battles, kid!
