Bright Lights and Craughing

So we have been living in this house for over 3 years now and apparently the entire time we have been living with only 2 of the 4 light bulbs in the bathroom working. The other day one of the light bulbs went out and when PR Dad removed the fixture to replace it and that's when we realized that the fixture was for 4 light bulbs. So he replaced all the bulbs and I cleaned the light fixture. And with 3 plus years of dirt it was so gross. So we put everything back together and flipped the switch. And we were both blinded by the bright bright light. After our eyes adjusted to the blinding light we looked around and noticed that our bathroom is ugly and we need new floor badly. So now we have to keep sunglasses in the bathroom to go pee.
We also made up a new word last night. The Phi was sitting in her high chair for dinner last night. Apparently she was sitting on her foot and when she moved it, it must have been asleep. She started giving this really strange cry. Like a mix of laughing and crying. So I picked her up and sat her on the counter and tried to get her to tell me what was wrong. The Cry/laughing was getting worse. I tried to put her down but she couldn't stand on her own. I put her back on the counter and thought something was wrong with her leg. When I touched her foot the crying/laughing got much worse. PR Dad figured out that her foot was asleep. Then we were all cracking up. My poor Kidd-o was hurting and being tickled all at the same time. So with her first experience with her limbs falling asleep she created a new word, Craughing. When it tickles and hurts at the same time and you are crying and laughing its called Craughing.
