Laughter of a child

Hearing my girls laughing and having fun together is has got to be my favorite sound. No matter how difficult my day may be going, to hear that sound makes me smile and often not even makes me laugh along with them even though they have no idea that I am or that I am even paying attention to what they are doing.

Kendal does not get to play in the tub with the other two anymore because she has just gotten way too big. Today though, Bransyn fell asleep (and is still sleeping) in the pick up line to get Kendal from school and when we got home, Kendal and Payton wanted to play outside. While their playing outside only lasted about 15 minutes, they got pretty nasty so they wanted to "swim" in the water. Which at our house means the bathtub. So I start the tub with just water because they tell me, "We don't want any bubbles Mommy, just water" and they "jump" in. They have been in there for close to 45 minutes playing and getting washed up. Kendal even washed and conditioned Payton's hair along with her own and they soaped up their loofahs and scrubbed themselves clean. Although we did have one screaming incident when Payton stuck her face in the water with the shampoo on her head and had a burning nose and eyes. Other than that, they have been laughing hysterically in there. Those from deep down in the belly laughs, the ones that make me start cracking up even when I am in another room. I'm not even sure what they are finding so funny. At one point I stood by the door peeking in trying to get glimpse of what they were laughing at. I gotta say, there really wasn't anything going on that was so funny, but to them, it (whatever "it" is) was hilarious!!! Oh, the sweet innocence of a child.

Thank you, God, for blessing me with with my little angels. May their laughter always be such a sweet sound. I am proud to be their Mommy!!

Until next time...
