Mama Says Om: Laugh

8.16.2006

Papa: "Oh, Anya you're so smart, one day you'll know more than I do."
Anya: "Sometimes I already do."
Papa: "Yes Anya, you do."

That little exchange gave me my best laugh of the day.
I also was treated to a few laughs as I
sang Miss Mary Mack (the Ella Jenkins version) in the car.
washed the car and sprayed Anya with water.
tickled Madison.
joked with customers at work.
snuggled Annie during rest time.

I am hoping to add a lot more laughter to my weekend. I am off for 3 nights and 4 days of crazy tourist delight in New York City, without my children! Yep, I said it without my children. I am so lucky to be taking this trip and it is very, very needed. I am going with my sister-in-law and her wonderful sisters. We should have a great time, lots of laughs to be had. This will only be the 2nd night I will be away from the children- in more than 4 years. I do believe it is much needed and well deserved. We will be laughing at a few shows, chuckling down 8th Ave as we shoe shop and giggling over cocktails at whatever hip bar will let a tragically unhip mommy in. (I do think I'll miss everyone, just a little bit, but not enough not to go.) And the best part is hubby took a few days off of work to be with the girls. If you see them all over the weekend try not to laught at their mismatched outfits and unbrushed hair.

Have a good laugh.

I'm sooo jealous of you!! Have a great time in NYC! I longed for one of those days where I can leave my children for a "refresher" (I've left them once for a funeral), the mommy guilt trip is so overwhelming for me, it's taking over my better half! ;-)
