Bless Mom and Dad-to be, Bless Baby too
I'm wishing all the best for you.
May Baby be smart and sweet and fair,
Quick of wit and fast to share.
May Baby have a love of life,
Pride in toil and strength in strife,
And also have a sense of humor,
Sense enough to ignore a rumor.
And be by all the virtues kissed,
For there are many I have missed,
And may you all ecstatic be
Because you'll be a family.

Ouch, my poor baby, give him a nice carrot for me and a scritch, don't tell me when as I don't want to go through sympathy pains....

Well done, Boog. But, I'm not infanticipating...I'm contemplating gelding 2bits, Bunny

Thank you so much M.J. and Bob. I really appreciate that. I am very much a romantic, and becoming more so as I get older...

This is a very nice poem. I love "infanticipating". I remember my own joy at first hearing such news. I especially liked "and be by all the virtues kissed". Nice job!
