Sweet, sweet sound

I am supposed to be getting in the shower in order to take Queen Bee to her swim lesson, but I heard this sound, and I knew I had to blog about it.

The sound is the Monkey's laugh.

There is nothing sweeter in this world. She is the cutest little giggler, and she can crack herself up at a moment's notice.

The Monkey finds the humor in most situations, almost to the point of it being scarey. To think that a child at the tender age of three can find humor.....

Right now, she and the Door Man are out in the hallway with a flashlight, making shadows on the wall. She is giggling with delight as new shadows are formed and the Door Man finds a new shape to make.

Yesterday, the Man was eating lunch and had had quite a bit to eat. He was playing the "which is bigger" game with pretzel sticks. He would hold up a normal-sized one, and a small one, and say "Mommy .. which one is bigger?" and I would say "your head." Well, he didn't like that, so he said "stop saying thaaaaaaaat" as a loud Barney burp emitted from his body.

The Monkey erupted in a fit of laughter. "He.... say ..... THAAAAAT..... burping....... "

She laughed for five minutes about it. And of course, I laughed with her.

Laughter really IS the best medicine. We should do it more often, and children should always be involved.

There's not much better than a shared laugh with your kids.

There are far too many crabby people out there, who can't find humor in anything.

Not us! :)

I totally agree that there is nothing better in thois world that the sound of children's laughter.

The sound of either of my children's laughter fills my heart with more love and pride than anything else in this world. No matter how horrible a day I have had, there smile is an instant cure.

Have a great weekend!

Absolutely right, we need to laugh more! When my kids get me to giggling, I feel younger, don't you?

Oh kids come home on Sunday and I am so stoked. I've been missing them like crazy and since I know they've been having a bad time (again) this summer, it's even worse.
