A Poem About My Main Function As A Parent

I tell my child not to jump on the bed
Instead she prefers to jump on my head
She has the most adorable toes
Though less endearing when kicking my nose
But sometimes she does give my head a rest
And chooses instead to jump on my chest
My daughter is a little jumping bean
And I am her daddy the trampoline

      The more you express pain, the more they laugh

    There is a super jumping bean button automatically triggered when parents go on Facetime to show off their little darlings to grandparents!
