The Best Gifts

The best gift
That I ever got
Didn't really weigh a lot
It didn't have a ribbon 'round
And it sometimes made a 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 often times 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, newborn child...

An all time favorite Barbara Streisand song...
My two all time favorite Christmas "gifts"...
And a little nostalgia on a Tuesday morning...
