Ari in the arms of one of our sick day rescuers:

I swear that’s laughter.  Apologies for any motion sickness.

The strangest things set off giggles: she’ll sneeze a couple times in a row, let out a long, satisfying sigh, and then laugh, apparently, at the series of recent events.  And then yesterday:

John: Anything happen today?

Me: Your daughter somehow managed to work her own feces up into her armpits and the folds of her neck.

John: Ha!  Really?!  God, sounds traumatic.

Me: Not for her at least; it couldn’t have amused her more.

    Did you ever read the Mary Poppins books? Not the Disney dreck. The originals by P. L. Travers. Mary Poppins talked about babies and language in a way that has really stuck with me.

      Oh, I haven’t! I must 🙂

        I don’t know which book it’s in, but they’re all good. And I must reiterate that the Disney version has only about 2% in common with the real one, which I read before the movie came out. I refused to see the movie for years. It still nauseates me a bit.

        Truthfully, I’ve only seen the movie in French (my mom’s attempt to help my French stay fresh). But I really like Dick Van Dyke.

        I haven’t seen the movie in French, but I am very fond of French and France . . . 🙂 Anyway, I like both Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews a lot. My issue is with Disney’s jollification of the books. Kids do not need everything to have a spoonful of sugar. They can deal with sternness and odd temperaments. Grrr.

        The author had similar problems, I hear, but the millions of dollars she made from the movie must have helped!

        millions of dollars tend to help, yes.

    Yes, it can happen. Even weirder things can happen. Laughing is the best — for both baby and mom.
