Mommy wanted to save the happy news to tell Daddy on Motzei Shabbat, which will be the 3rd anniversary of our engagement. But she couldn't wait anymore, so she made a special surprise.
Daddy drove Mommy home from work and then went on a quick shopping trip. While Daddy was at the store, Mommy wrote a poem (see below) on an accordion-folded sheet of paper. Then she put it in a ring box and gave it to Daddy as his Chanuka/early anniversary present.
Daddy was surprised and so so happy to find out the special news.
Three years ago,
on New Year's Eve,
you gave me a ring.
Tonight I am giving you
something even smaller than a ring.
But iy"H one day
it will be much, much bigger.
Hey, wait a minute...
We both know I only celebrate Jewish holidays!
I guess you'll have to wait until Rosh Hashana 5767....
to meet our
boy or girl.
