Happy 2007, everyone! We celebrated last night as only the parents of toddlers can: We ordered Chinese takeout and fell asleep by 10:30. Woo hoo!
About a week or so ago, WCB invented a new phrase: If she eats something she finds particularly enjoyable, she'll get a big smile on her face and exclaim, "Mmm ... NICE!!"
This is the cutest thing EVER, and I also think this is a good philosophy for life in general. In fact, I think it will be my Official Motto for 2007. I'm going to look for more things that make me want to shriek, "Mmm .... NICE!!" Notice that it's not, "Mmm ... SPECTACULAR!!" or "Mmm ... LIFE CHANGING!!" It's a phrase that celebrates the things that are "nice". You know: the little things that just make life generally pleasant. For example, Jay and I have been watching Scrubs on DVD. We finished one disc and had to send it back to Netflix, which meant we had to wait about a week to see the next episode. Then we discovered that our TiVo had picked up the EXACT episode that we needed. What are the odds?
What about you? What makes your life "Mmm ... NICE!!"?
