Laughter Is Contagious

My one year old and five year old nephews came over to visit today. Their older sister turned seven and she was having an exclusive all girls birthday party. They had cupcake decorating, nail painting and tiara making activities. The one thing she stipulated was absolutely no boys. So to abide by this rule, her younger brothers were delivered to me for the afternoon.

While I read stories to the one year old, the five year old was watching a DVD. It was one of his favorites--yes, one of those that gets played several times a day. And although he had probably seen it a hundred times, he laughed at the funny parts as heartily as he did the first time he watched it. The sound of his happiness warmed my heart.

I was a little grumpy early in the day, but hearing him laugh...completely turned that around.

  • Nothing beats it. Whenever I hear my little man giggle it makes my day. I just love their innocence and enthusiasm.
