Ode to Silk

As you may know, April is National Poetry month. An even more obscure fact? I have actually published a poetry book that you have not purchased because you obviously don' t want me to feed and clothe my child. But, I digress. Where was I? Ah, yes...Poetry. I was asked to creatively chat with you about Silk. I could go and on and and on about it but in lieu of April, I give you a poem.


Oh Silk, oh Silk! I'm so glad I found you!

I remember it well when my boobs started to dry

I looked & I searched for a tasty replacement

but when she wouldn't take it, I sat down to cry.

-- ------------------------------------------------------------------

Then one day out the blue, Dom casually mentioned

that Very Vanilla would sure do the trick

Are you serious man? Would she drink this for real?

If not, I assure you I was sure to get sick.


Off I went to the store, perusing the shelves

Then I found it and ran all the way home

While I was at work one spring morning it happened

Silvia decided to give the frog princess some.


Oh Silk! Oh Silk! You saved my child's life

By replacing the breastmilk she exclusively knew

A man gave me advice & it was actually solid

I'm forever indebted & he's now part of my crew.


I tell all who listen that I weaned with some Silk

Though lately I've found something special for me

Ice lattes in the fridge for this mami to drink

Oh Silk, oh Silk this is how it should be!

I'm not sure if this is awesome poetry. But I do know that Silk is awesome! I cannot tell you what a relief it was to have found Silk when I did. We had tried regular milk but the frog princess refused it. With the stress of my mom passing away, my anxiety grew that I would be unable to provide the milk that she needed. Though she was eating at the time, I still felt it was important for her to nurse. Silk gave me peace of mind and gave her a yummy bottle when the time came to wean. By the way, she weaned herself.  At 16 months. Don't get me started because I was heartbroken. Now that I think about it though, I wonder if she weaned because she preferred the Very Vanilla Silk over me! Travesty! Anywho, it's that good.

Also, now they have these yummy iced latte situations that I adore. I'm always running around with 32 different things going on at once. There are some days I don't want to have to go put coffee on (I'm old fashioned and use a percolator y'all!). Having Silk Iced Latte in the fridge (I'm loving the mocha flavor) makes my life easier when I need a yummy treat. PS: feel free to throw this in a blender with some ice and caramel for an extra delicious treat.

Have you had this yumminess? How do you drink your Silk?
