Two nights ago. It’s just after dinner and the girls and I linger at the table as Luau makes his way around the kitchen. Brooke is sitting on my lap. She is facing me, her legs straddling mine. Katie is sitting one seat over, in her usual chair. We are laughing.
Brooke inadvertantly lets out a – well, um, hmm – a ‘bottom burp’ if you will. She looks surprised.
We all burst into fits of giggles.
Katie laughs so hard that she ultimately follows her little sister’s example.
We laugh even harder.
Brooke looks at me. She is laughing so hard that she can barely catch her breath as she says, “Your turn, Mama!”
I nearly fall off my chair laughing.
And no, I didn’t. Sheesh, people.
