Don't just live in the world

Tickle Me

January 21st, 2011 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Parenting

Your laughter is the sound of pure joy. I will never forget the first time I heard it and all I could think was that I had to make that happen again.

When you first started laughing, nothing ever worked twice. We would blow on your belly, but the next time that didn’t get a reaction. Tickle your sides, make funny noises and funnier faces.

Soon it started coming more easily, and now you have several ticklish spots. You arch your back and squirm around and laugh and laugh and laugh.

It is the most happy sound I have ever known. Your face lights up, your whole body laughs.

I hope it lasts your whole life, this joy, this unbridled happiness. I hope you can always be the light in the room.
