I really love the sound of my children playing. Right now some of them have some friends over and they are all playing beautifully outside.SOme of the kids are making a play about leprechauns fairies and just plain kids. We have scrapbooked our Disneyland Pictures and had lunch. The day is going well.
I love hearing their giggles and full bellied laughing. They are plotting and planning some amazing things out in the yard. they are imagining they are pirates, dancers, rock starts, basketball stars,a mom, a fisherman. There is singing, swinging, jumping, running, dancing, soccer and football going on.
How wonderful to be able to create such a magical world that can be explored. Great to be a child but better to be their mom! previously posted March 2011
Although these little hooligans are now much older (the youngest is 10) and there are 6 more added I still love hearing them play. The type of playing has changed a bit. They are now doing hair, battling with cards, passing a football, shooting hoops or watching a movie. They still have a laughter that makes my heart smile.
Now that we have, what I believe is our 20 and last baby, I am taking more time to listen to the giggles. To me there is something so sweet about hearing a child laugh. There is an added element of magic when I hear them and they are mine. Treasure the giggles and the innate goodness of children. The time sure goes by fast when their giggles are gone.
