My kids make me laugh – Hands up or the kitty gets it!

20120604-093039.jpgMy kids make me laugh.

This is how my kids greeted me this morning. GoGo came crawling into the room meowing like a cat. Then Watty runs in, points his toy gun at his brother, and yells “hands up or the kitty gets it!”

I was laughing so hard all I could manage was this one bad photo from my cell phone.  I did try for another, but all I got was the backside of a kitty dressed in adult sized black shorts.

My kids are crazy.  When I let them, they make me laugh – a lot.

I believe with my whole heart that finding joy in my kids’ behavior is one key to being a happy mom.  Really being “present” and allowing myself to enjoy moments like this made a huge difference in how rewarding motherhood felt to me.

Finding the funny is important.  It’s so important that I’m adding it to my weekly blog schedule.  Every Tuesday, I’ll try to share a new way that my kids make me laugh.

Care to share?  How have your kids made you laugh recently?

I have a passion for encouraging weary worn out mothers to find joy in everyday motherhood and peace in unlikely places. I have two elementary school boys, one nerdy husband, and two cats. I have a strange fascination for bad puns, the color pink, socks, and books. I worry about running out of toilet paper, wine, and chocolate.. I serve an amazing God. I live an ordinary life filled with wonder.
