Some days laughter just feels lost.
Lost in the loading and unloading of laundry.
Lost in the sweeping up of endless dog hair, random toys and stray socks.
It was looking like one of those weeks when the mundane and monotonous would rule.
And then Matt, our 5-year-old, had the brilliant idea of inviting friends over for a playdate.
What an excellent way for him to get lost in his own room while I hunted down some sanity.
So while they played and I folded laundry, I overheard one friend plead, “Matt, can we please play with Lego’s….pretty
There was a long pause followed by belly-splittin’ laughter…
“Matt!!! You’re not pretty…cause if you were pretty you’d be a girl! …. Eeewww!”
And there it was… laughter wasn’t lost after all!
Happy Friday all!
