Sweet, sweet sound
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.
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
