Joie de vivre

The Little Sis has an incredible love of life at the moment. Even the littlest things turn her giddy with enthusiasm as she takes in all that’s around her. “I LOVE oranges,” she’ll declare to me, unsolicited. “I like my babies very much,” she’ll assert with unmatched confidence.

This morning I was buckling in The Little Sis in the car when she noticed that one of our trees has bloomed overnight. She said, “Oh, Mommy! Look! The tree has flowers on it!” I turned around and said, “Oh yes, it does! They’re pink!” Enunciating each word carefully, she said, “I LOVE flowers! They are so PRETTY. I am so ‘CITED!” (Have I mentioned she’s very in tune with her own emotions, as well as the emotions of others? She loves to identify how she’s feeling. “I so fwustwated right now.” “Is Sissy mad?”)

I must admit that her enthusiasm is quite contagious and makes me want to start singing the praises of all the little things in life.

I LOVE THAT THE GRASS IS GREEN AGAIN!
