'Twas the night on Halloween

'Twas the night of Halloween , when all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

The curtains were hung by the window with care,

In hopes that the baby soon would be there;

The clothes were all laundered,

While visions of sweet babes is all that was wondered;

And Shel in her 'jams and Penguin in his shorts,

Had just settled down to watch some sports.

When in her belly there arose such a clatter,

O' how the baby's feet went pitter patter.

Shel laughed with excitement and giggled with glee,

And wondered if the babes was in there saying "whee."

With 32 weeks in there and only 7 more to go,

Ma waits for the moment when it is time to go

To the hospital with her hubs in tow.

We'll know in a moment it must be the time

To push and push until I just rhyme ,

And he whistled, and shouted, and called her by name;

Makayla Noele it's your birthday

Your mommy and daddy are excited this day!

very nice. and one objection to your profile: you are NOT in your mid-30's, unless you are lying about your age. *I* am in my mid-30's.

as for your profile, you use "all while" a couple times. a little redundant :-)
