I live for the laughter. Those bursts of happiness are easily what I will miss most when my kids grow up…when the magic has been replaced by stress and responsibility and there is nothing but an echo of the silliness that my children injected into each day.
I can only assume that is why every grandparent can’t help but to spoil our babies despite the fall out we get to suffer the next day…because that laughter is golden and absolutely priceless.
They will lose control, break a thing or two, take it too far, and likely leave a sibling in tears…but, we must find a way to allow it because one day our heart will ache for those sounds of childhood.
This is one of my all time favorite family sessions because I feel like I’ve captured the truest sounds of happiness.
Can you hear it?
