Happy Birthday!


22 years ago on Christmas Eve, I found out that I was going to have a child. After two surgeries and Clomid it was the best news. This Barbara Streisand song is the theme song for this event.

The best gift

That I ever got

Didn’t really weigh a lot

It didn’t have a ribbon ’round

And it sometimes made the terrible sound

The best of all it seems to me

It wasn’t neath the christmas tree

And yet, I guess I’d have to say

That it made all the other presents twice as gay

The best gift that I’ve ever known

I’d always wanted most to own

Yet in my dreams of sugar and spice

I never thought it could be so nice

The best gift that I ever get

Was sometimes dry and sometimes wet
Was usually pink but oftentimes red

As it lay so innocently in it’s bed

The best gift of the year to me

The one I hold most dear to me

A gift that simply drove me wild

Was a tiny new born child...


Happy Birthday Evan!

E-energetic

V-valiant

A-amusing
N-noble

Congratulations on what must have been a wild weekend--birthday and engagement--WOW! Also, for the record, I just have to say that Clomid is EVIL--but without it I wouldn't have my boy either. Congratulations on your new addition!
