my son says things sometimes that make me think. we got another snow storm today, and i decided to keep them home from school, the driving in our van is not great in bad weather... we were swimming ( we just put in an indoor therapy pool) and austin said, "hey mom, can we laugh under water?" i said well, it will be strange but, give it a try!
he and max dove down and i heard some distorted noises comming up in the bubbles. they burst to the surface screaming " you can, mom we laughed under the water". i started thinking, isn't that awesome? these boys can laugh anywhere. im not always happy about it, when they get giggly at the doctors office while im listening to the doctor tell me things that are surely not funny, or when they laugh at eachother when they fall down, or during looooong car rides. i have even yelled at them for too much laughing! but its days like today, when i think to myself, i am so glad they can laugh under water, that they even wanted to try. life is not easy for a family with duchennes, sometimes i dont think there is anything to laugh about. today we all laughed, really hard, because laughing under water just makes you come up for air and want to dive down and try it again!
