One of the best and somewhat unexpected benefits of being a parent is the comic relief.
Kids have an innate sense of comedic timing that I think we lose as we get older. Maybe the funny moments come easier to them because they are free of inhibitions or they aren’t weighed down by the worries that are pinned to adulthood.
It’s next to impossible to stay feeling blue when your youngest child tugs at the hem of your coat and you turn around to see this…
Yes little girl, you do amuse me.
And to my son who took this “somewhat” altered photo of me and called it Fat Pinocchio. I howled.
Seems I’ve given birth to two Court Jesters.
