Today is my 39th birthday. As I enter in to the last year of the my 30's I took pause to think about how I want to live this year. The word that kept coming to mind is laughter. I want to laugh more. I want to laugh more with my kids. I want to laugh more with my wonderful husband of 15 years. As the girls and I spent time at a park today (N was with a friend for a couple of hours) I sat down with my book on a bench and A immediately asked me to swing with her ("i love you swing"...see earlier post). My first response was "in a minute..when I finish this chapter..." but I quickly amended that answer to a resounding "YES!". While swinging and being photographed up-close paparazzi style by S (who had her turn second), the girls said, "This is how you laugh when you are 39 mom."
Yes. Yes it is.
