A story from Yoli:
A few days ago, the girls were listening to Christmas music, when the song “Happy Holidays” began playing.
Ludi heard the word “happy.” She lifted her head and opened her eyes wide and began saying “appy appy appy,” which is her way of telling us she wants to sing “Happy, happy” (a Christian preschool song).
Yoli began singing the song and changed the lyrics to include Ludi’s name: “Happy, happy, happy happy happy. Happy is my Ludi, my Ludi, Lu Luuuuu…”
Then Jadzia asked Yoli to sing the song with HER name, too. Yoli complied.
“Happy, happy, happy happy happy. Happy is Jadzia, Jadziiiia Marieeeee…”
Jadzia began screaming.
“No, you’re doing it wrong! I’m not happy! I’m sad!” she exclaimed. “Sing it with ‘sad!'”
Yoli asked “Why are you sad?”
“Because somebody pushed me.”
“Who pushed you?”
“I don’t know. Somebody!”
