GOING GREEN
CONGRATULATION NEW PARENTS

We welcome to this world
a sweet new life
with eyes like Dad’s
and smile just like Mom’s.
Or, do I have that backwards?
But does it really matter?
We all agree
your tiny being’s precious.

Dear Parents,
Say, “good by” to sleep
for the next two years,
“hello” to awe and wonder
as every smile, every tear,
every burp
becomes the focus
of a Facebook entry.

Yes, times have changed.
This little wonder
is now posted on the internet.
Family and friends
need only click
to peek into the crib
then e-mail you some advice
and many virtual hugs.
