Found Poem for a Second Birthday

It's the most terrifying day of your life,
the day the first one is born.


Yeah. Nobody ever tells you that.

Your life,
as you know it,
is gone.

Never to return.

But they learn how to walk,
and they learn how to talk, and...

and you want to be with them.

And they turn out to be the most
delightful people
you will ever meet in your life.

Awww! Happy birthday Young Master Sam! Your mommy's really cool, which you will believe for the next 6-8 years, then not believe for another 6-8 years, and then believe again, but trust me, she is! :)

*hugs*

You are so right. I've had three, and I can't figure out how they came out so nice compared to me.

Sam's the spittin' image of his mom!

He has the most adorable expression

"That's nice" seems woefully inadequate, although that is what the script says the response is.

Good line breaks! And happy birthday to the boy!

Happy Birthday, Sam the DoppelBaby.

(Your birthday is the day after mine. We're practically twins. Only you are waaaaaay cuter.)

Sweet poem.
