Z, my baby girl, is buckets-o-fun.
Through her, I get to see the world with glittering eyes: colorful, curious, and all agog.
Her playful and joyful attitude humbles me; sometimes I wonder if we’re really cut from the same cloth … but I’m convinced it’s God in her.
She says the quirkiest and smiliest things, her latest phrase being:
*Translated: Wow, it’s good!
Just yesterday, we went to the clinic for her 2-year check up. As we entered through the sliding doors she screamed, “Wow, c’est bon!” Meanwhile, I was muttering, “Please God, don’t let this be a long stressful appointment.”
… talk about attitude check!
The beauty of this expression is that it’s active. You’ve got to say it with:
- Tremendous oomph
- Hands raised
- Loud voice
If you don’t follow protocol, it won’t deliver the intended dose of joy.
Try it: “Wow! C’est bon!”
