Spending time tonight on You Tube looking at videos of babies cracking up at random things makes me think about how many belly laughs I owe my kids. They’re invigorating. Like apples, I think you need one a day.
I wonder where I will get my laughs when my kids are grown and out of the house. Then I remember that they will have kids and I’ll get to start the laughing all over again.
Today’s laugh was this conversation in the car with Cole.
Cole: I’m thirsty!
Me: Do you want a drink of my water?
Cole: No, thanks.
Me: Why? I don’t have cooties.
Cole: Huh? What are cooties? Oh, you mean those oranges?
The other (indirect) laugh came tonight. You should know that tomorrow night we are surprising the kids with a weekend trip to a nearby indoor water park resort for Valentine’s day. (Something we like to do anyway, but think it’s fun to make a V-day surprise). Well, we had Chinese food tonight and Will read his fortune: A resort area will be part of your next holiday plans. I about died. He promptly ripped it up and said those things (fortunes) are full of it. Ironic and funny? I think yes.
