Some Double Dactyls

Here are two double dactyls that I re-purposed.  They were in fixed verse originally, but I refashioned them for the women's conference.  As usual, I needed two double dactyls to cover my subjects, tsk tsk.

Budgeting For Boys
Higgledy Piggledy
Showed we were having
Another young DUDE.
Fam’lies with three boys must
Start very early to
Budget for food.

Higgledy Piggledy
Household accountancy
Surely would say food
Expenditure's worst,
But my suspicion is
We'll need another big
Fridge-freezer first.

Higgledy Piggledy
Helen McFarley, she
Sighed very deeply then
Went to confess:
“Raising my children is
Stressful when dealing with
N – I – T – S.”

Higgledy Piggledy
Helen McFarley
Admitted the worst as her
Voice duly fell:
Chocolate at my house
Contains white, milk, dark
And COMBANTRIN as well.”

I think I have a nappy to change.  I'd like to tell you about how people are insulting me regarding photos and videos, how I am devolving into insanity with the slightest amount of tiredness, how Timothy is 1 month old and gorgeous, etc, but I'm not sure if any of it is interesting to anyone else.  Still, it's a problem for another day as I smell something suspicious ...

Good to hear from you - I love the repurposed double dactyls. So what if you need two to get your point across - aren't they supposed to be DOUBLE?

I think I am inadvertently creating quadruple dactyls. I assume that's wrong.

Insanity? That's almost never good...

Love Rex's sidebar pic! Life's going to be so great for you in another month's time.

"Almost never" ... LOL.

Incontrovertibly love the double, triple or quadruple dactyls. Is this what occupies your brain while preparing Rex's daily feeds?

SO impressive Kate! Can I share them with the guy who shared double dactyls with me? You're a master indeed!
