Baby Tears are choking my garden plants

I need help with being able to eradicate what I think are "baby tears", tiny mosslike plants, spreading like a carpet in my garden.
This past spring had loads of rain, so now my perennial garden is invaded by this unwelcome ground cover.
How can I get rid of this "moss" or groundcover without killing my beautiful perennials?

I sure could use some help.

Thank you.

Nasty invading baby tears are next to impossible to get rid of. If they are in your lawn, forget about it. Roundup is the only thing that worked for me and they still came back. The only other thing is strong sunshine in the summer will kill it back. SORRY! Anyone else have any ideas?

The cat's asleep, I whisper "kitten", until he stirs a little and begins to purr.

I found an article on Baby's Tears that may be of help.

Sounds tough! Good luck.
