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?
Fun in a Box
Nothing beats having fun in a box. Priceless.
This keeps me laughing as much as the kids. Jada loves to take one sock off and run around the house while she’s giggling.
A Princess in a Castle
Do you see those butterfly pants? That’s Jada having a blast in the castle she shares with her brother. He’s in there, too, trying to rescue her.
Nothing makes Jada happier than discovering a new food. These bunnies were a hit the first time she had them, so now she giggles whenever she sees the box.
A girl after my own heart, you give her a new accessory and she gives you smiles and giggles.
On Top of the World
If daddy wants a good laugh out of his little girl all he has to do is throw her on his shoulders. I don’t blame her. It looks like fun to me.
Escaping my Brother
Although big brother looks confused, Jada can’t stop laughing because she just took a toy spoon away from him.
Take Me Out to the Ball Game
Jada’s is having some serious fun with her brother’s baseball helmet. She thinks it’s hilarious.
Do you see that little hand? It’s Jada getting ready for the big knock down. My son builds castles, and Jada knocks them down. Luckily, he gets a kick out of the knock down (most of the time).
I don;t think anything is funnier to Jada than making a mess while eating. Can’t you tell?
My Funny Bird Brother
After making this bird costume with my son, Jada had a blast laughing at him while he flew around the house. I have to admit, it was pretty funny.
Whenever Jada gets a new set of sheets, she always starts to laugh when you put her in bed. I think anything new and bright makes her laugh.
Since Jada likes to take off her socks, she decides to go for her brother’s foot. She’s a sneaky one.
Selfie with Mommy
My phone makes her laugh, so whenever I pull it out I am guaranteed to get the perfect selfie.
Snack with Hat
Hat on, tea cup in one hand, and a snack in the other. Now what’s not funny about that?
Ready to Read
Just like her brother, Jada gets giggly over bedtime stories. I just love it!
