If you asked me ten years ago what the best sound in the world was, I am not sure what my answer would have been. If you ask me today the answer is easy; the sound of my kids giggling. Nothing beats it. I could be having the craziest day, I hear my little ones giggle (sometimes uncontrollably) and all is well with the world.
What’s incredible about the giggles is how they are often brought on by the day-to-day things that adults don’t find too funny. But kids, being the rays of light that they are, see the best in everything. They take a simple moment and turn it into an opportunity to laugh until they just can’t laugh anymore. I love it. It helps me maintain my sense of humor and keeps me grounded and focused on the goodness in life. There is very little we can control, so why not make the best of things and have a good laugh, right?
Here are pictures of 16 random moments that make my 16-month-old girl (and sometimes her brother) giggle her little heart out. What everyday moments make your little ones giggle?
When I was a child, I remember always feeling loved. My mother made sure that, regardless of anything going on in our world, we were never doubtful about how much we were loved. I also remember feeling like my mother had big dreams for my life. She faced many challenges as a young girl in Haiti, so her hopes for my life were big. She wanted me to reach the stars and live a magical life that she only dreamed of when she was growing up.
Jada has loved water from the moment she took her very first bath. Whether she’s in a pool, at the beach, or in a tub, being in water has always been a happy place for her.
Bathtime has become an opportunity for us to bond and it’s one of our favorite parts of the day. I like to think of bathtime as a chance for Jada to unwind and relax after a busy day. Considering how much she seems to enjoy it, I think she feels the same way.
When my little girl came home from the hospital I just wanted to hold her and keep her warm. I knew that in the blink of an eye she’d be all grown up, worrying about her hair and fashion trends. Now, just 16 months in, I watch day Jada enjoy her first purse and it’s the cutest thing I have ever seen. If only her purse could always stay this clutter-free.
Thanks to Disney for sponsoring this post and giving me the Minnie Mouse 10 oz. 3-Pack Orthodontic Bottles from NUK for free.
Jada has begun using sippy cups but insists on having a bottle before bedtime. Maybe a bottle reminds her of her younger days and brings her comfort. I just know that she is very particular and if I want a calm, happy evening, Jada gets her last bit of milk for the day in a bottle.
