Baby Bunting

Bye, Baby bunting,

Father’s gone a-hunting,

Mother’s gone a-milking,

Sister’s gone a-silking,

And Brother’s gone to buy a skin

To wrap the Baby bunting in.

    1. Thank you. This is a nicer baby bunting – yesterday’s baby bunting was wearing the rabbit skin his/her father killed. Today father is out and about, but the baby isn’t wearing fur!

      I am enjoying your Father’s Day posts! EVERYONE should FOLLOW your blog – interesting, beautifully composed, creative posts!

    1. Busy and her borther (I think she is a her) goes to kill the rabbit – less repulsive than Friday’s Father’s Day post where the father killed the rabbit and the baby was already wearing the bunny fur – ears and all!
