little laughs

This is something I listen to every now and then when I feel like a little laugh and I thought it would be a nice way to end the week.

A little background info first. This was recorded almost 2 years ago (the kids were 3 and 7). We were all in the study and little C was sitting on one of the desk chairs (the type that can go around and around). D made up a 'game' where he'd count to three (Spanish) and push the chair around in circles (with C in it). He'd wait for it to come around and let it hit him so he'd fall to the ground in 'knocked-out' fashion. Little C thought this was extremely hilarious. Mr. Z and I were just laughing because little C's laughter was so contagious. Listen - promise it's short - oh and really silly.



I made the recording using Audacity. It's free and so very easy to use. I've recorded the kids singing, saying their ABCs, chatting and just acting silly. If you have kids you should really try it. It's amazing how their voices change in just a few months time. I know the same can be achieved with video but somehow just listening makes it all sound so much sweeter.

Have a great weekend everyone and go have some laughs of your own!

(Oh my... 2nd post in a row without a photo. I told you that things came to a screeching halt around here! Next week will be better.)

  2. This is awesome! Reminds me when, after I had kids of my own, I realized why my parents used to tickle me so much. Kid laughter is soul medicine.

    Thank you so much for sharing a little moment of your family.

  10. You've captured such a beautiful moment so wonderfully. It's definitely something that should be listened to every now and then like a prescribed dose for cheering up. Children are such gems.

    I have been through your hand-made crafts and like the intricate details. You can open up and maintain a store on Silkfair.com as well without any listing costs. It has a growing community of interested buyers and craft lovers who would just flip over your art.

    The upside of that will be that as soon as they open the custom-store feature, you can brand your store-front completely around 'a little hut' to give a consistent brand for your fans (instead of directing them to your silkfair or etsy stores).

    Anyway, you are doing a great job and are a source of inspiration for many. Keep up the good work.
