Day 2590 - Looking at the world from a kid's perspective #lovinlifelinky

Imagine if your life was filled with extreme joy.


My son has this habit of telling stories that end in "soooo good".  In his 12-year-old brain things aren't just "good" or "funny" they're exceedingly so.

I was going to pull him up on it and suggest that he tone it down a bit to make room for the stuff that really was amazing.  But then I thought, who am I to take away his daily dose of extreme joy?

So today I thought I'd look at the world from his perspective.

Welcome to the Deep Fried "So Good" edition.

As part of my Christmas marketing preparation I randomly searched a few online book shops to see if they stocked my books and discovered that most of them do.  Seeing the books all lined up for global purchase felt "sooo good".




I happened upon an online dress shop and bought a wrap dress which is going to look "sooo good" this festive season.

The "Mandy" red wrap floral dress from Little Party Dress

I got to hang out in Sydney again this week while the model daughter did her thing. I managed to spend four hours on my laptop in a little study nook at the Ultimo Public Library with free wifi. It was "sooo good" to get a bunch of work done including the back spiel for my new book, finalising the ISBN barcode and getting the artwork sorted for both the book and the matching postcard.

  


It's been "sooo good" to get a few testimonials and positive comments from children, parents and fellow bloggers who have just read the Charlie books.

Say hi to Chelsea whose mum just bought her the latest book as an end of year surprise
and to Charlotte and Lillian who are reviewing the books for me for Mum Cathy's blog 

It was "sooo good" to get the hubby home after eight days at the Pan Pacific Masters Games. Unfortunately he got injured part way through the week, but he still came home with a bronze medal for his main team and a silver medal for the team he filled in for.  Oh and he met Gina at the airport on the way home.


That's just a handful of the "sooo good" moments in my life this week so far.

 I like this world of "sooo good".  I can see why my son's always smiling.


What catch phrases do your kids use?

Are they from the land of "sooo good"? 

What's been "sooo good" in your world this week?

  1. I love it when things are "soooo good" but not when they are "totally sick" which apparently means the same thing in teenage speak!

    1. I'm glad "totally sick" hasn't reached our house yet. Imagine what my "totally sick" post would look like?

  2. I would have pulled you up had you corrected him. I am actually in the middle of a post on the yes men. I have that at my age, no one seems to get enthusiastic about anything. They're so dull. It's a totally downer. I'd rather the over excited exhuberence than the reticent of middle age.

    1. I hope it looks as good on. I'm a bit frightened to try it in case I don't do it justice.

  4. Love this. I used to hate the word awesome. It seemed really wanky to me. But then I read a post about this young girl who told her mother she was gonna wake up and be awesome the next day. And when she woke she dressed in some strange combination of clothing and was SOOOOO proud of herself. The mother's post about it went viral and I wrote a few posts about the fact that 'Tomorrow I was gonna be awesome'. But it was mostly about being reminded of the enthusiasm of children and the fact we lose that 'awe' as we age. So, I'm all for a bit of extra enthusiasm!

    1. Ditto re awesome. I used to think it was a wank too. Now I use it all the time. Perhaps I'm just getting wanky?

  5. Love that your son finds so many things *SO GOOD* - good on him! I think all the things you've listed here are very worthy of being *SO GOOD*!! Oh and I am in love with that wrap dress you bought! #TeamLovinLife

    1. Great wrap dress. As I said about to SSG though, I hope it looks as good on me as it did on the model.

  6. Ha ha! Out of the mouth of babes! It is sooo refreshing to hear that your boy is exuberant about life. 12 is a wonderful age - not quiet a terrible teen but also not a little kid anymore. My little boy who is now 28 years old, says "sweet" all the time. If you tell him something he says "sweet" as an acknowledgement. And although he is 28 he is still a very sweet boy. Both of my kids are sooo good!

  7. LOL where do I start?! #wrecked #vintage #yolo #bae #ownage .... Some of the lingo I've picked up from my kids. But, I love that there is so much so good stuff happening for you! As my Mr 22 would say: everything's coming up Leanne!

    1. We get a lot of yolo and bae from the teen too. I love wrecked! I could use that ...

  8. Oh thank heavens for positivity Leanne, we need as much as we can get. And those expressions - as I travel into and through my sixties my FOMO by not understanding the new words bothers me as I love to keep in touch. But I think my favourite positive expression is 'super', pronounced the way the do in France, long and energetic!
    And that red dress, it is SO GOOD!
    Thanks for the link up.

  9. That was soooooo good to read Leanne! Now I will be adding that to my vocab. Great post of really uplifting updates too. Pity about the hub and injury but sooooo good he got a pic with Gina !!

  12. I can just hear hims saying "SOOO GOOD!" and it's a lovely phrase encapsulating so much joy for life if only inadvertently. I'm SOOO GLAD that your week was SOOO GOOD :) Your new dress looks divine, and well done for getting SOOO MUCH done in the library! I always seem to manage to be distracted by SOOO MANY books when I visit ours. Back in the day my kids used to say, "It was SICK Mum," which I could never quite correlate with what they implied meaning "It was SOOO GOOD!"

    1. I was lucky that this library was in a very Chinese area of SYdney which meant half the books were in Chinese. Given I can't read Chinese, I wasn't the least bit distracted, LOL!

  13. Hi Leanne! Isn't it wonderful that you son is 12 and still can be upbeat and positive IT IS SOOOOO GOOD! Love the dress and I missed out on the Masters Games this year - I run long distance and I couldn't find if they had one. Maybe for my 60th next year. Have a SOOO GOOD week and enjoyed reading your blog. Thanks for the opportunity to link up with #TeamLovin'Life

    1. Such a shame you missed the Masters! This was the Pan Pacific Masters Games and had 14,000 athletes. The World Masters is in New Zealand in April next year and they are expecting about 40,000 over there. Apparently the next Australian one is in Tasmania in October 2017. Hope that helps!

  17. Loving the red dress Leanne! My daughter often says "chalk that" meaning "forget that" or "I'm not doing that". It amuses me a little. My son sometimes uses the soooo good expression too. Great to see them being enthusiastic about things! :) #TeamLovinLife

  18. I've been eyeing off that dress myself. I suspect it wouldn't agree with my height. Is there a photo of you in it?

    1. I haven't even tried it on yet Raych. I'm scared to in case it doesn't look as good on me as I'm hoping it well. I want to live in "ignorance is bliss" mode for a little longer. LOL. Although I'll need to try it soon. The party season is fast approaching!

  19. My 3.75 year old has recently latched onto "awesome!" and "super cool!" I blame Paw Patrol.
