My Kids Make Me Laugh – Mustaches

my kids make me laugh from thishappymom.comMy kids make me laugh.  When I started this weekly feature, I was a little worried about finding content each week.  I had visions of chasing my kids around the house with a camera as I begged them to “do something funny.”  I had a few odd dreams about eavesdropping on other families to find funny things they said.

So far, my kids have continued to be funny.  More accurately, I continue to find small everyday moments to treasure.

Sometimes, it’s what they say.  Their dialog can be priceless.  Earlier today, they were trying to convince me that they invented Popeye just to trick kids into eating spinach.  Just last week, they were claiming that zombie dinosaurs were definitely scarier that vampire giant robots.

At other times (like today) it’s a more visual humor.

Oh GoGo, you make me laugh with your silly mustache.  You crack me up with your “old man” routine.

My dear little one got a mustache sticker out of the vending machine.  It was basically felt with adhesive stuck to the back of it.  He stuck it on his chin.

I was laughing so hard, I couldn’t get the words out to explain to him why it was so funny. But I think he figured it out.

So he moved it to his upper lip.

And he proceeded to talk like an old man.

He has this routine where he bends over and walks with a cane. All he says is

“I’m an OOOOOOLD man”

over and over. Great fun when my daddy is around (not! it’s awkward!).

Later, he was sitting in front of my iPad (he set it up like a laptop). my kids make me laugh - at work

What he really said was

I’m being a nerd, mommy.

But what I typed in twitter was

I’m being a nerd mommy.

Both were true, but only one was funny.

Care to share?  How have your kids made you laugh this week?

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.

  1. Thanks for posting this! It actually made me stop and remember something funny my 11 year old said yesterday. He told me that I along with his younger brother had “missed the best 5 minutes of his entire life” when he was watching one of our new kittens play. Funny mostly because it came from my very “not an animal kind of person” kid.

  2. love it. i can understand how he felt that way, those kittens are cutie pies!

  3. I’m laughing along with you, kids can be so funny in their innocence. What a cutie he is, I love his “I’m an old man” routine.

    • i tried so hard to get his routine on video because it’s truly funny. but every time i pull the camera out he clams up. he’s such a cutie. i can’t believe how fast he has grown up! ALMOST makes me want another one.

  4. Very funny!!! Mine picked up a fake mustache this week too. We were fishing, and he wasn’t catching anything. He handed me his mustache and said, “I think it’s scaring the fish. Can you hold it for me?” 🙂
