The first time Christopher laughed he was a little tiny baby and I was tickling his stomach after changing his diaper. I shouted for Paul to come and told him what had happened. “He didn’t laugh.” Paul said.
“Yes he did,” I stood firm. “I know it because my heart just exploded.”
Yesterday my family was away at a friend’s for dinner and didn’t return until late. This morning when a little Peanut came downstairs I greeted her and asked if she missed me last night.
“No, I missed my cousins.”
I would evict her, except Torey would feel obliged to go too and then who would do my girls’ hair?

“Youneeedtotaakeeet!” she shouted back.
I took it.
Paul shook his head, “This needs to stop…it has to stop.”
