One of our favorite things to do around here is laugh at Myla. Not in a making fun of kind of way, but legitimately laugh at her. Because she's just SO funny! There's something about the way she talks and the way she moves and the things she thinks and says that seriously gets us every time. It's kinda nice to have built in entertainment...
For the most part, she's not even trying to be funny. She's just being herself, which makes it that much better. But every now and then, when the girls are bored at dinner, they'll turn to her and say, "Myla, make us laugh!" to which Myla will typically respond with something silly or goofy or cute, and everyone will be happy.
BUT. It feels like things are changing. And changing quickly! Because the other day at dinner, either before or after one of the girls asked her to do something funny, Myla lost it. She literally lost it....and started yelling at her sisters that it was NOT funny and that they could NOT LAUGH! And let me tell you. She meant it!
Well, as you can imagine, this only prompted more laughing. And more yelling. And a bit of a dinnertime scene. And, to be honest, I half expected this to be our new mealtime norm. Laughing and yelling and general insanity. But when we woke up to these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal Muffins the next morning, I'm happy to report there was no such thing.
It may have been because everyone was too busy stuffing their mouths full of these muffins, or because they were just too happy for insanity, but whatever the reason, breakfast was peaceful. And delicious. SO delicious.
