The main thing in one’s own private world is to try to laugh as much as you cry. Maya Angelou
All 3 of the little’s make me laugh with their antics but it is no secret that little lady is especially funny and has a way of not only cracking me up but anyone within ear shot of her.
Especially this 3 year old little boy…her partner in crime…
His laughter is so contagious that you can’t help but laugh with him.
Last week I was going through old photo’s for a picture board I was making for my brothers party. I came across one of my husband and I at our wedding. I showed it to little lady and said “Look, here’s a picture of when I got married to someone I really love.” She asks “To Daddy?” I said, “Yep, This is when Daddy was totally crazy about me.” To which she quickly exclaimed, “ Now I know why Daddy acts so crazy all the time!”
This past Monday evening I tried to talk my husband into going with little lady to her parent child class so that I could stay home and watch the football game.
Little lady would not hear of it so off we went to school.
When we arrived at her classroom, the teachers greeted us and asked her how she was doing to which she said, “Mommy didn’t want to come with me… (Oh dear lord)…She wanted to stay home and watch the Vikings. She tried to get Daddy to come with me but I said, no way.” They thought this was quite funny.
They asked her if she liked the Vikings too and she says loudly, “Of course I do!” Then she turns to me and say’s, “We need to go back home so I can put my Vikings jersey on….we forgot to put my jersey on since it’s Viking day.” I told her, “If we go back home I’m staying home and watching the game.”
A short time later, we were sitting in circle time and the teacher was explaining what we were suppose to do at each of the stations. Little lady turns to me and say’s loudly, “Are you paying attention to what she’s saying so you know what your doing this time?” (Yep I’ve made a few booboo’s and she’s called me on them. And yes I was paying attention…I just have a short memory :)
A while later, one of the little boys exclaims to one of the teachers, “I got to ride in Daddy’s big truck to school tonight!” In response, Little lady shouts, “I rode in my Mommy’s swagger wagon to school!”(Thank you dear daughter for teaching the little’s to call our van the swagger wagon.)
A couple of evenings ago, I thought I would try using the heating pad on my neck while I relaxed in the chair. Little lady came to sit on my lap and seeing the heating pad on my neck, she laughs and screams, “Silly Mommy what are you doing with the yogurt maker on your neck?”(I use the heating pad to incubate yogurt and here she thought that was it’s only purpose.) She thought it was pretty hilarious that I would put a yogurt maker on my neck.
Earlier this week, little lady over heard me telling someone that I cannot wait until I can start working out and diet. I found her in her room, laying on her bed, upset. I asked her what was wrong to which she says, “ I don’t want you to die from working out.” She thought I had said, “I can’t wait to work out and die.” (Which is pretty much going to be the case with how bad of shape I am in right now.)
Aren’t these 3 of the cutest trouble makers you’ve ever seen?
Sometimes their trouble making drives me crazy and makes me want to pull out my hair.
most of the time sometimes I can’t even look at them without breaking into a smile or laughter.
The longer I am a mother the more I realize the importance of keeping a sense of humor for the sake of sanity. Theirs & mine.
Happy Friday. I hope you have a fabulously fantastic Friday.
I hope this weekend is one with opportunities for refreshment, relaxation, doing something you enjoy and laughter.
Spread the laughter around.
Laugh with those you love.
Until next time, love & hugs, Lori
