Why Are You Laughing?

Lately I've been singing Leila to sleep. Sometimes she likes it, sometimes she doesn't.

For nap today I wrapped Leila up tight in a blanket, rocked her, and started to sing.

Leila would cry and try to get away.
Then laugh.
Then cry again.
Then laugh again.

I couldn't figure it out. What was going on? Why was she laughing?

Then I figured it out after a bit.

I have this "thing" where I can't seem to use my mouth without instinctively raising and lowering my eyebrows at the same time (I've been mocked about this before).

Every time my eyebrows went up while I sang, Leila laughed.

She was me...and my eyebrows. Soon my singing stopped, because I couldn't help but laugh too.
