She earned her first entry when she was only fourteen months old. We were walking through a store and a nun (in her habit) walked passed. My daughter started yelling "boo! boo!" The kind woman stopped and said, "Well hi there sweetie." My daughter with amazing clarity said, "No, Ghost say Boo!"
I have made entries in her quote book a couple times a month or so since she was about two years old. Now, being home with her even more than normal I am starting to wonder if we will need to order a second quote book to get us through the next weeks or months.
According to my oldest daughter, "When I grow up (sister) is not allowed to suck on my nipples!" She picks flowers so she can put them in water so they won't die. And I can't even remember half the things she said at lunch today that had us laughing.
Laughter is much needed these day and I'm grateful my daughter provides an abundance of it. I'm grateful she enjoys laughter yoga. I'm grateful she has started doing regular yoga with me in the mornings too. I'm grateful for her funny anecdotes and the innocent way she processes things. I'm grateful for her big heart and sweet hugs. I'm grateful for this time together. I'm grateful to have a quote book to record all these cute moments. And I'm grateful to think of the years to come when we can look back on these quotes and laugh together again and again.
What brings you laughter? Who brightens your day?
May we all have someone special to lighten the mood. May we celebrate these precious moments of togetherness. Have a beautiful day!
