There! I used the word I have been meaning to for years! Haha!

Yes bambino! It’s Italian and means baby or child. And when the Italians say it, they say it with passion, with flair and pomp! Can you imagine the twirl of the moustache and the flick of the fingers?

OK, so I might be exaggerating. Sorry….

But hearing from any deliriously-happy especially first-time father, it would certainly be with passion! Indeed, birth announcements of any sort should be with passion.

As was my friend’s recent one about his firstborn – a son. He spent a small fortune telling everyone the weight, date and time of delivery, and of course, the name, which mean JOY. Yes, bambino brings joy!
