I think I can tell you now...

Turns out I'm quite superstitious.  When someone tells me how good they are feeling, or how cute a baby is or pretty much anything good,  I sneak a quick "knock on wood", because you never know when the evil eye is listening! I'm afraid of telling a fib, such as: "Oh, I couldn't come, I was sick" because what if the spirits punish me for fibbing and make me sick, (did you notice I chose fib instead of lie?).  During Oscar season, whenever an Oscar winner starts going on and on about their wonderful husband... I immediately think, "there goes that marriage, you shouldn't have said a word..." (see Sandra Bullock last year). 

All this leads up to why I haven't shared our wonderful news with you until we were in the final stretch.  Our wonderful daughter Shiri is having a baby in 6 weeks!  How exciting and marvelous is that? (tfu tfu tfu, which is me spitting over my shoulder to keep the evil spirits away).  We don't know if it's a boy or a girl, they want the surprise and we are happy with that as well.  Here she is!

and now, just to make sure, please knock.
