Thursday nights my brother-in-law, Chris, has class.
Between Aunt Linda and myself, we keep Grant so Chris can get to class on time and Sis can have a little kid free time to unwind or run errands once a week.

I have grown to love this time with my nephew.
We rough house, run around, jump, race in his Little Tykes car, and have a blast.
Last night was different though.
Grant was in such a sweet mood.
All he wanted to do was sit on the couch and read Goodnight Moon together over and over again.  He will sit right next to you, pull your arm over his shoulder and hand you a book.  For real, best moment of my week. 

We took a break from reading to have some giggles too.
Our giggles are my all time favorite time of all time.
How can that smile not melt you heart?!

You all know laughter is very important to me,
but I'll let you in on a little secret.
The morning my mom passed away, Sis and I were sobbing when I heard our mom's voice plain as day say, "Don't lose your laughter, girls."
From that moment on I've thought of those words.
I want to pass that message on to my nieces and nephew as they grow up as a way of keeping Mom's memory alive.  Because of that split second, I cherish each and every giggle I share with them.  Not only do we never know how long we have together, but I want them to look back on their childhoods and remember the fun we always had together.

I love his giggle so much so that I did a voice recording of us together. All it is is us laughing.  I can't help but giggle just listening to us laughing.

We were having so much fun I did a video recording of our silly times.
So, to end your week with some laughs, 
here's the simple act that had us in stitches last night.

Honestly, a tissue was all it took to bring us tons of laughs.
Those are the best moments.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

  1. This is super cute! My niece has started to acknowledge tickling but she can't quite get the laughs out yet. She just smiles and squirms.
