Adaptation on a Fairy Tale

My sweet baby, what sparkling eyes you have!

All the better to charm you with.

Babygirl, what delicious chubby little legs you have!

All the better to wiggle and bounce and kicky-kick at my toys with!

My little dumpling, what teeny tiny tiny fingers you have!

All the better for tickling you with.

Little tiger, where did you get that magical smile?

It's my specialty. All the better to love you with.
