When I read this poem to my daughter (who not only appreciates poetry, but writes them herself), wanted to change two lines… "Let's remove the 'gassy gut' and the 'bloody noses' lines … they're gross."

I actually think she wanted them removed since she feels embarrassed about it.

Now and Then

Six years ago
Late night
Bouncing baby
Gassy gut
No sleep
Daddy tired

Six years later
Late night
Holding child
Bloody nose
No sleep
Daddy still tired
