So Sunday night while getting Ashleigh in bed, she asks me "Why did the chicken cross the road?" I respond, why. She says with a huge smile on her face, "To say AAGGHH!" We are both laughing. She is laughing because she thinks her joke is funny. I am laughing because her joke is definitely not funny.
So last night as I am putting her to bed, she tells me some knock knock jokes. Of course, they are not funny but we are laughing anyway. I want to remember this moment - the silliness of the moment, our laughing, her joy in telling me a joke. These moments make being a mother the best thing in the world.
