Zi: Ate come here and see what Mamam made. Ate: (not even looking) wow, that’s amazing. Zi: Ate, don’t say “wow, that was amazing…..” You have to say “WOW!! THAT WAS AMAZING! Ate: Stop telling me what to do.
In Emma’s heart is a gigantic room for Zienne. She took time, on her own volition, to teach her little sister how to tie shoe laces. As the little sister, zi always welcomes new knowledge from her older sister. If it was me trying to teach Zienne, she’d already lose patience and tell me she knows how to tie the laces, but with her Ate Emma, she’ll sit and observe. I love capturing moments like this, stealing them from time before they vanish.
