My Kids Make Me Laugh – Back To School Style

My kids make me laugh, even as we’re gearing up for back to school.

We’ve got a few traditions that make the tradition easier.  One of those is taking the kids to IHOP for pancakes.

(there’s several other early morning traditions – they help get us back on schedule).

As I was planning out the next two weeks and making sure I get all those traditions covered, I was reminded of last year’s IHOP day. I don’t know what it was, but the kids were amazingly funny that day.

That’s the day my son and I had this long drawn out conversation about body parts.  See that? Right on the IHOP placemat.  Classy.

(if you don’t remember what I was drawing, you really should go look.)

It’s also the day that they told me a “whopper” of a joke about fish.

Remember?   It’s still one of my favorite jokes from them.  It still makes me laugh.

Almost as much as Watty’s declaration about not keeping a pet salmon.  (that post attracts a TON of spammers.  i wish i knew why.)

My kids make me laugh - you don't keep salmon as pets

And when they had this long involved conversation about the weight of air.  (nerd alert.  it’s a geeky one.)

My kids make me laugh.

This time a year ago, GoGo was making me giggle with his mustache faces and his brother’s glasses.

I just realized Watty is wearing that same shirt today. No wonder it looks tight and worn out! It’s a year old.

So out of curiosity – I’d love to know…

How do you ease back to school this time of year?  Any favorite traditions.

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. You have lots of fun traditions! Ours are more boring like tomorrow is enrollment day and that is the day we’ll go buy all our school supplies-I won’t even go into the school supply aisles prior to enrollment.
