Mommying in the Modern Era

Day 2 of Laughter

Posted on Updated on

In continuing with my commitment to take seven days one at a time and notice something to laugh at in each, here is day two:

My husband.

Now—I should probably rephrase that. I don’t laugh at him… but Shawn has always made an attempt to make me laugh. And when we had our son—it was like a whole new genre opened up to funny memes, pictures and text messages he can send me.

These events make me giggle, no matter the day, week or month, location or time.

Thank you Shawn ❤️❤️ Laughter truly can be the best medicine.

7 Days of Laughter

Posted on

So this year in my MOPS group (Mothers Of Pre-Schoolers), we were challenged to think of one thing that makes us laugh for 7 days straight. Considering the week I had last week with crazy anxiety mixed up emotions– I decided I needed this option in our “truth or dare” challenges to give energy back into my fun and crazy self. So here it goes.

DAY 1: I would say this cracks me up almost every day– but the first thing I can think of that makes me laugh all the time is Austin. Today’s example is that my husband sent me a message stating that our son woke up a little early and instead of crying, started pressing the buttons on his Scout plus Puppy. You may not think anything of it but when you have a monitor in another room and suddenly you here “let’s sing a song about me and my friend… Austin!”, its a little funny. And then he’ll push the button two or three seconds later, without even finishing and you’ll here another tune or Scout sing or say something silly.

I’m glad God put this little kid in my life. Some days I may think i’m not enough for him and some days I just drop in exhaustion. But his laugh…yeah… its the best.
