There is nothing better than the sound of your own children squealing and laughing.
They were outside early in the day before we set out for our Easter adventure, and the husband was spraying down the patio as we have some crazy dog that still thinks it is appropriate to defecate there....even though there is NO SNOW...and the girls were just squealing and laughing just with the thought that they might get sprayed. Which they didn't. I had gone into the house moments earlier and just the sound of their laughter, wafting into the house brought a smile on my face and in my heart that has stayed close with me throughout the day.
Thank goodness, as thoughts of divorce could have taken over the sweet-children thoughts quite easily if only given the chance.
