Yup, the title says it. I'm going to be a father.

It's a girl. Her name is Janis Maddow LaGreca

Her mommy to be is my beautiful IamNotaKochSucker whom I met at Occupy Wall Street in Zuccotti Park. She was holding this sign when I first met her.

Love at First Sign
We are expecting little Janis any day now.

So you can imagine that I've been a little busy. I've been working on a big project that is almost finished in between writing articles when I can and getting ready for little Janis to arrive.

Sorry if this isn't much of a diary. I will be around a while to respond to comments before I head off to the MSNBC studio to appear on the Ed Show with Ed Schultz on MSNBC to talk about the lies they tell on Fox News. Just thought I would share some good news on a slow Friday news day.

Peace and love to all, and I will be sure to do a big photo diary when little Janis gets here.


Now all I need is a Kepi small enough for a Toddler

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
