Kai’s Laughter

My son’s laughter is definitely one of his most notable qualities.

From the time he was very young and his personality was just starting to peek through, it was evident that Kai was a very exuberant child. I recall that at his early IEP sessions, we started out the meetings by going around the table with everyone telling what qualities of Kai they particularly enjoyed. Almost everyone mentioned his smile, personality, or laughter.

Yesterday, he and I took advantage of some fresh snow to go sledding once again. And though the conditions were not as icy fast as the week before, we still had plenty of fast runs down the hill.

On one particular run, one of Kai’s snow boots fell off halfway down the hill. Kai thought it was the funniest thing. I was irritated that I had to go back to retrieve it, and told him to make sure he kept them on his feet from now on.

A few runs later, I told him that I would take a video. He said something about losing his shoe. I told him to not to lose it again. Little did I know that he was planning to deliberately kick off his shoes (snow boots) on this run.

You can see the video of it here. (Apologies that you will have to turn your head to the right to see it properly. I haven’t figured out how to shoot video from my Android phone.)

You can hear on the video that I was a little irked that he deliberately lost his shoes, while he thought it was the funniest thing in the world.

After we got home, he could not wait to see the video and then to show Mom.

He ended up watching the video several more times after this, laughing just as hysterically each time.

And you know what? By that time, he had me smiling, too.

Silly kid.

Sweet kid.


  1. I'm with Kai...that is hysterical! :)

    1. Haha, you didn't have to go back and retrieve the boots or worry about wet socks. But, okay, I did come around to thinking it was funny. I thought it was more funny that he planned it all out, and most funny that he got such a kick out of it. :)

  2. There is hardly anything more enjoyable to hear than the genuine laughter of a of the great simple rewards of a parent.

    1. With Kai's silly personality, we hear his laughter often!
