My Sweetie

So after Maria killed it in school today, I told her she and I could use our gift cards and go to the mall, where we were totally embarrassing and took model shots of each other to see which clothes were best, (Obviously her shirt was picked) she had never picked out clothes in Russia. On the way to the car she helped me open the door, “Thank you, sweetie.” “What’s that, sweetie, mama?” “It’s just a word that means I love you.” “Oh, I love you too, sweetie!”

    AWESOME! The Russian word for sweetie is “dorogoya” and means “dear” or “valuable.” Your daughter is bloshoi dorogoya <3

    I love that she called you that in return! She IS such a sweetie!

    So fun to hang with you guys today for a bit, even if we got rained out! We’ll have to check the weather next time and do it again soon! Tell Maria I’m still so impressed with her reading…and that next time I leave the house I’ll be wearing my scarf!

    Oh! “Sweetie,” in Russian, is “SLATkaya.” A week or so after we got home from Russia, I told Elena she was a “slatkaya.” She obviously recognized the word, because her face completely lit up, and she pointed at herself and said, “Elena? Slatkaya?” in a sort of half-believing way. It’s still one of her favorite words.

    I´m crying, I´ve been reading your blog for a while now, this is my first comment. Maria melted my heart with “oh, I love you too, sweetie”.
