Once again… “Mummi” is Finnish for grandma.
The kids have always considered Santa Claus to be a good pal of Jesus since they both hang around at Christmas time. Gabriel started his wish-list early this year…
Well he is technically a saint (or at least based on one) so that might actually work. fun fact old Nick is the patron saint of Children, repentant thieves,merchants, the falsely accused, and for some reason broadcasters.
Thank you catholic school
TOO CUTE!!!! You have a very sweet daughter.
Yes we do, but this is actually our long-haired son, Gabriel.
Eh, I get mistaken for a boy all the time, so fair’s fair.
He is cute….but she is a cute little boy named Gabriel and grandma’s sweet little angel.
On a side note… re: “mummi”
I’ve noticed that the word for “mommy” is very similar in the languages I an familiar with. While Europe can trace it back to Latin (maybe); that can’t be said for Mandarin (“Mama”, where daddy is “Baba”). Any explainations?
In Dutch it’s Mama aswell and Papa for dad. In German it’s mutti or mama I recall and vati.
As a father of three… and just remembering classes from school… one of the first sounds children make is “Maa”. Sure they do all kinds of “Brrr” and what have you, but “Maa” is an all time favorite. Even if you don’t sit in front of the kids and try to get them to say “Mommy” or “Daddy”
No matter the country, they want to say “Maa” at some time. Interesting.
Another fun fact! “Mama” (alternatively spelled Mamma, Mami etc.) is a mesopotamian goddess, possibly the same as Ninhursag, who is the mother goddess of Sumer. In an Old Babylonian epic she’s the one who creates mankind from clay and the blood of a slaughtered god (yummy).
And that’s a story that was first written down maybe about 1700 BC. …weird.
