Noah and I had a little just-us-boys trip last weekend, and on our last night away he got a serious case of the giggles. It was in the pitch black of our hotel room while I *tried* to get him calmed down and to sleep.
Except if there’s one thing this dad’s bad at, it’s actually wanting my kid to calm down and go to sleep. Bedtime is just too much fun.
So, I *may* have helped him not calm down and not go to sleep, too. I don’t remember.
And a side note to Noah’s mom. I’m sorry for the seriously tired kid I delivered back to you.
But it was boys night. What’d you expect?

PS. Do any of you have a little too much fun at bed time to the point that you don’t want it to end?
OK, this is super random, but were you guys in the SLC airport early Sunday afternoon? I was walking through on my way to my flight home and could have SWORN I saw you and Noah walk by, I did a serious double take. If that was y'all that would be awesome!!
I keep hearing about all these "special bedtime moments"... Is that something that happens after they stop being two? For us, an awesome bedtime is one in which I don't get kicked in the face. I hope something like this is in the future (or that my son at least stops kicking by the time he's that big) because it sounds like a blast.
OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! I cannot tell you how many nights me and my kiddo have like this!!! the little giggle is AMAZING!!! It makes me laugh so hard i have tears in my eyes!!!
so cute!!! I love their giggles, it makes your heart sing and it's good for your soul. Both of yours. Glad you guys had a blast!
I can't tell you how many recordings of Oliver that I have of him just giggling and talking to himself as he falls asleep. Some of the best times he and I have had!
Just as funny was my dog's reaction. She was lying quietly on the bed by my feet, and as soon as I clicked 'play' she perked up and looked around for the squealing child. After about 20 seconds of cocking her head back and forth, she apparently decided it wasn't something she needed to care about and lay back down. :)
Lol...I could have said the exact same thing. I delivered my grandson, noah, back to my daughter yesterday...we kept him hopping!
I would love to see Noah laughing in a video that we can see him. He sounds hysterical! Lil I was trying to find one, maybe I'm not seeing them all. What a contagious laugh! Ha ha!
I just love tickling my Noah, too! His laugh is the best sound in the entire world, and his smile lights up my life. I love when we're on my bed doing stories, snuggles and our last chats for the evening before he goes to his bed. But we often get very silly like this and I love these moments more than anything. Thanks for the clip, just so precious!
Hey, Noah, I'm sick right now, a nasty flu, and you just made my day a million times better. Thank you for brightening my gloominess.
That's awesome. The world would be a better place if we could all go to bed that happy every night....
One sleep deprived day is worth the lifetime of memories he's going to have about that giggle filled night with his dad. :)
If you need to laugh or smile..this will do it. Can not help to laugh along when you hear little Noah's giggles!
Awesome laughs...but I can't see the video...pardon me if I sound stupid but is this supposed to be audio only? Glad you guys had fun. have a good night with your little man!
There are mornings like this where snuggling takes over the urge to be on time for school/work/etc. I say enjoy the giggles as long as you can :0)
LOVELOVELOVE this.... Yes, bedtime is awesome and I could see you just hovering the tickle finger above him. In my twins, that makes them laugh even harder in anticipation of the tickles. I love your blog so much. Keep up the fantastic work :-D
@laughingmom my son used to be a tough one too! bedtime reading was easy because he loves books but i used to have to pin him down and hold him there until he fell asleep. I know another mom whose son was the same way! it does end I promise! You just gotta keep on em!
@mbohn Yeah sorry, I thought it was light enough to at least see something, but the video came through super dark.
@TrishaCrabb I know, I know.
