Crumb-y baby

Sometimes breastfeeding takes quite a bit of time, so I snack while I feed.  A couple of days ago I munched on a cookie and some crumbs fell onto Baby's head.  This snippet from Shel Silvertein's poem "The Dirtiest Man in the World" came across my mind as I quickly brushed the crumbs away...

Oh I'm Dirty Dan, the world's dirtiest man,
I never have taken a shower.
I can't see my shirt - it's so covered with dirt,
And my ears have enough to grow flowers...
