Last week, one of my children (Child A), wanted me to move a little faster.
"Come on 'Baldilocks!!'" nudged Child A, spontaneously creating this new appellation.
I might have gotten annoyed, but the nickname was so funny, I burst out laughing!
I immediate asked if I could post it. This was too good not to share.
Child A only agreed if I promised not to reveal said child's identity. Done.
A few days later, I shared this story with another of my children (Child B), who also burst out laughing.
Today, Child B called out to me, "bye Baldilocks!"
Child A overheard and immediately claimed ownership of the clever phrase, "Hey, I made that up!!"
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
