Assistance with punctuation for this poem I'm writing for children's book?


[word recommendation, punctuation suggestions?]

There is a silly family, with some very silly kids.

Mommy, Daddy, Colin and Elly.
Each one is unique, but all of them, silly.


[punctuation suggestions?]

But wait, what’s that? There is more?

One more, to be exact. A new friend is coming, it’s a matter of fact.

The word choices and punctuation all look fine to me. The thing about poetry is that it is art. The rules don't have to apply. Every little choice of word placement or punctuation can make a difference in perception. It is up to the writer (artist) to make those choices.
