This beautiful poem humorously captures many mother's sentiments as we juggle the demands of life while striving to enjoy the fleeting moments of our babies' lives. Originally published in Ladies Home Journal in 1958 as "Song for a Fifth Child", Ruth Hulbert Hamilton's poem will encourage and uplift every mother's heart.

Green scrolling vines with pink, purple, yellow and blue flowers frame the text in this "originally compiled" design. A light pink border sweetly outlines the medium blue lettering.

This cross stitch will be UNFRAMED and stitched on 28 count evenweave fabric with at least 2-3" of margin to work with on each side. Approximate finished size will be 9x11".

Your poem will be shipped rolled up in a tube to ensure there are no creases on the design.
