'Twas the Night Before Pickup...

and all through our heads,
not a calm thought was stirring,
not even in bed!

The diaper bag was packed by the front door with care,
in hopes that our little one soon would be there.

Mommy and Daddy were nestled all snug in their beds,
while visions of Island Boy danced in their heads.

Daddy fussed a little and Mommy fussed a lot,
wondering what the two of them forgot.

Oh, diapers! Oh, wipees! Oh, sippee cups! Oh, toys!
Oh, blankies! Oh, bottles! Oh, lotions! Oh, boy!

They charged up the cameras and cleared off the cards,
and tried to relax but found it quite hard.

They were frightened and excited and worried that's true,
wondering what when he saw them he'd do.

They both knew the new day would bring them great joy,
since then they would meet their dear Island Boy.

As they dozed off to sleep on that last late late night,
they knew that tomorrow all things would be right.
