it's lil baby's first birthday
i am sitting here with pride
in the study of good in-laws
who change diapers as i hide

i've been to birthday parties
for my step-girl and step-son
i felt a bit the spectator
today i feel like number one

baby's in the other room
wowing the uncles and aunts
he had cake and ice cream now
he's not wearing any pants

baby, i love just as much
as good son and good daughter
i do buy my son boy's toys
and my girl, the things i've bought her

love is key love's what i have
today baby's number one
and every day wayoutdad
gives them all Big Brother Fun



 All Day I Dream About Stanzas!!

Oh, wayoutwalt, you are such a special dad and poet!  I love the way you write about your baby, and your fatherhood.  A marvelous gift to share with us.  Not many fathers out there like you, I don't think!  Your wife must be so proud!

But you know what's really cool, Walt? Even though we are far from perfect, our children think that we hung the moon! At least until they get a little older and wiser! So enjoy it while it lasts!!
