Share a Laugh

So yesterday night I was able to share a two good laughs with my son. It's been a while since we shared a moment like that. Sometimes in life we are just too caught up with our busy schedules and don't make time to enjoy the simple things such as smiling with someone that matters most in the world to you. The first laugh we shared was during EJ's baseball game against St. Matthews. At the time, he was playing Right Field. He was in the zone in decent squat position with this arms resting on this thighs with his mit on. Finally, the opposing team struck out for the 3rd time and so all of his teammates ran into the dugout. As he was running, I guess he noticed his fly was open. I was standing to the right of the dugout against the fence eyeing him. He started to laugh and said..."Mommy, my fly was open". He laughed and went towards my way to adjust his zipper very discreetly and very quickly. I laughed and we both shared a good cheesy smile. It felt good. It was a very cute moment. The second laugh we shared was in the bathroom washing up for bed. I called him downstairs from his bedroom. It was close to bedtime and he needed to brush his teeth. He came downstairs and in the bathroom he went. As he was brushing, I was removing my contacts. I was done and just as I was walking out of the bathroom, I noticed a bad habit of mine which was leaving the medicine cabinet door open. My body was literally out the door and decided to be slick and just stick my right arm out and into the bathroom and shut it. Without looking, I thought I was be able to estimate the distance of the cabinet door and my grasp perfectly and close the medicine cabinet door shut as I as walking away. First try - unsucessful. EJ was probably wondering what the hell I was doing. Second try - unsuccessful again. EJ finally understood why my arm was in a waving like motion. Third try I attempted to swing again thinking I'd actually get in contact with the medicine cabinet - Unsucessful. By that time, EJ was laughing hysterically with his toothbrush in his mouth still. I said crap and peeked into the bathroom so see how far my hand was from the medicine cabinet - Not even close!! I shut it quickly and walked away. EJ was still laughing and then so was I. I guess I wasn't so slick after all.
