Day 10: A child's laughter
Ian hides behind the kitchen bar while Luca, wearing only her diaper, tries to find him. He jumps out and scares her, and she giggles so much she can barely take a breath. "I'm going to get you", he warns. She takes off on her tippy toes running from him as he stomps behind her. They are out of my sight now but all I can hear is the innocence in my child's laughter with the pitter patter of her feet and the stomping and laughter from Ian. Carefree, spontaneous, laughter, joy. And I think in these moments that my heart might explode into a thousand pieces.
