Can You Stop Now…?

Can you stop growing up now?
Can you stay all tiny and small?
I’m not sure I’m ready,
For you to be all grown up and tall.

One minute you were a baby,
The next you’re about to start school…
I swear you fell out of my fanjo just yesterday?!
It’s gone too fast, that’s just not cool.

I’m almost struggling to remember,
Having just one newborn tot…
Muslins and nightfeeds and poppers and nipple-shields,
But now I MISS THOSE CRUSTY MUSLINS A LOT.

You don’t need me like you used to…
You’re such an awesome, independent little dude.
Did I wish it away – soon you’ll be away every day.
God I’m really gonna miss you.

So can you stop growing up now?
Can we freeze and stay right here?
It’s time to stop getting bigger,
You’re quite large enough. Let’s make that clear.

You’re still my tiny baby, right…
Timehop – can you stop bloody rubbing it in?!
You’re growing up, and I’m holding up,
By mostly getting through it with gin.
