there's been a lot of laughter at our house recently
she with her beautiful wide smile
along side crooked and crinkly.
sometimes we are laughing at each other,
sometimes at ourselves
at the ridiculousness of her english or
a million other little occurances that strike us as funny.
laughing is ringing through the rooms
and occasionally the boys
come down from their rooms to see
what the rucus is about.
i can feel it in my bones and my heart and my soul
all this laughter.
