I meant to post this a few days ago, but with it being the holidays and all, it’s been a bit busy ’round here. Better late than never, though, to show you the CUTEST thing I think I’ve ever seen.
Capucine, the little girl in the video above – who the brazen mavens over at Jezebel have taken to calling “Amelie Jr.” – makes me want to move to Paris and have little French-speaking babies. Or maybe just become an au pair. Do yourself a favor and watch the very imaginative story she tells in the video, then scroll down to read her letter to Père Noël for Christmas, as transcribed by her Mère.
I would like a nice gift, and I would like to see you.
Because I have been very good throughout the year. I have listened well, I have cleaned up my room by myself and I had fun at school, and I have played with my friends.
Also, I am going to move, I will have a nice house and a mezzanine.
I eat everything, but sometimes, I don’t.
Then I would like to see you for Christmas and Halloween and talk to you. I would like to sing you a song-poem. When is winter coming ?
Also I would like to talk to you, but if you leave and go far away, I would like to see you in your house.
If I hug you, your beard will not sting, it will only tickle.
And I would like to go into your sleigh. How will I do that ? Do I have to climb up the trees ?
I can’t stand the cuteness. I don’t know that I was ever so innocent and sweet as a child. I feel like I emerged from the womb a sarcastic little spazz.
Merry Christma-Hannu-Kwanza-ka everybody!
