Virtual Baby Shower -- Custom Poems by Jill the Poem Lady


I was recently introduced to Jill Starishevsky, also known as the Poem Lady.  Jill writes custom poems for any occasion, including baby showers, bridal showers, bar mitzvah candle lighting ceremonies, anniversaries, thank you notes, invitations, and various special occasion, like Valentine's Day.  So, if you are looking for a unique way to celebrate these special events with family and friends, why not consider ordering a custom poem for them today.  I just love Jill's baby shower poems.  

Here is an example of Jill's work, the Baby Shower Candy Poem Game, which is a brand new alternative to the popular baby shower candy story games. 

Pass out a copy of this candy poem, leaving the underlined words blank. The underlined words represent popular candy names and those playing the candy poem game will need to decide what candy best suits each blank.

Baby Shower Candy Poem

You're having a baby and are as happy as can be
Please listen carefully and take some advice from me

When money is tight and you need 100 Grand
And all you want is to bury your head in the sand

Don't worry too much, you'll be able to find your way
If you can get by at least until next PayDay

No need to live on Fifth Avenue to make it all work out
We're going to share the ins and outs of what it's all about

Enjoy your new little bundle who’s your little Almond Joy
Name her Baby Ruth if a girl and Oh Henry if he's a boy

If twins are in your future Mike & Ike might be nice
Love the name you choose, for you don't get to pick it twice

When you first get home, there will be lots of shouts and cheers
As all will be excited to see the 3 Musketeers

If you have a Whopper of a time at figuring things out
And your lack of sleep makes you want to scream and shout

Give us a call and we'll help to lighten up your load
Friends can be Life Savers when you hit a Rocky Road

When you are oh so tired by the end of the day
And Whatchamacallit is the only name you can think to say

Don't fall to Pieces just try to relax and Take Five
The Razzles and Goo Goo sounds will be a Symphony come alive

If you become engorged, your breasts may really hurt
Be sure to dress those Mounds in a hip Milky Way shirt

If you have difficulty nursing, don't turn to your stud
He will be of little use for he's just a big Milk Dud

If you spill a little milk while you let your gaze linger
Don't be surprised if they call you Miss Butterfinger

If noises from the diaper sound like a Krackel in the air
Take a peek inside and check for a Hershey bar in there

When it's bath time and you're ready to wash your little love
Nothing is more gentle than a plain old bar of Dove

If you see Dots on their tush and know diaper rash is about
The best thing you can do is to let it just air out

If the crying is driving you Bonkers and you haven't seen a comb
You'll be very happy when the Big Daddy comes home

Never knew the Tearjerkers that Sugar Babies could be
These are the things they fail to mention when baby makes it three

You won't be getting out and may feel like two big Nerds
You'll long for the days when you were a couple of lovebirds

If your love life hits a Sour Patch and you're really in a Crunch
Call your hubby right at noon and invite him home for lunch

Go to Victoria's Secret and have a little shopping Spree
Who knows, someone looking to Skor might end up getting lucky

If Chuckles and Snickers are the major thing you fear
Because you're still feeling a little Chunky in the rear

Remember that he loves you like when he said “I do”
And you'll be a Jolly Rancher when the two of you are through

On a serious note, please heed this important advice
Having a new baby can be so very nice

Be a couple of Smarties and fall into each other's arms
Remember to say I love you and enjoy one another's Charms

Happy times are Good & Plenty if Hugs & Kisses you do share
Now that there are three of you there's more love in the air

How to Order a Custom Baby Shower Poem from the Poem Lady:

The way it works is that you provide Jill with information on the person (or event) for which you would like a poem written. 

She will need the following information for a baby shower poem:

  • The names of the mom and dad to be
  • When the baby is due
  • If they know the sex of the baby
  • Any nicknames for the baby in the womb, like peanut or bean
  • Do they have a name picked out?
  • Does the baby have any siblings?
  • If there a theme to the shower or the baby's room?

Make sure you include any anxieties like Dad is afraid to change his first diaper and Mom thinks the house is too small.  Jill will then get back to you, so you can give your input and any necessary can be made. She has a policy of 100% satisfaction guaranteed, and people are usually really excited with the results.  It is that easy!  Who wouldn't want a customized poem written especially for them and this special occasion? And, best of all, they can cherish this keepsake for years to come and share with their child when they get older.
