There's nothing like the sound of littles laughing and running around.
Sure, there's lots of screamin' and cryin' and he-took-my-favorite-(insert object d'jour here) and pull-your-hair-out mama moments, after all they're just 4 and not quite 2.
But...the belly laughs. They make it all worth it. You know the ones. The ones that make your whole body jiggle. The sneaky, steal-your-sister's-banana laughs. If only we could stop time. Just for a little while. After all, this was just last year. And look how much he's changed in just 12 months. *sob* I miss those baby rolls and all that droolin' too.
There may just be something to give those belly laughs a run for their money...the sweet nothings. The spontaneous leg hugs...the scribbly love notes...the stick people drawings...the Mama! with arms open wide...
The "I need to tell you a secret, mama."
- Okay, whisper it to me -
"Happy Best Friends Day, Mama (blows me a kiss)"
Oh, how I love you two! Blessings come in all shapes and sizes.
You two are my biggest ones.
