Days like today just beat me up.
While I want to just go put on my sweats, drink a bottle (or 3) of wine, eat my way through a box of chocolate covered macadamia nuts, what I WILL do is focus on the funny. A friend of mine during her spouse’s deployment, decided to keep a jar of notes about funny things her kids said and did so she could relive it with her husband when he returned. Genius!
Over the last couple of days I’ve been jotting notes here and there of the funny things my littles have said. Here’s the list:
Jake and I do this thing where I tell him, “I wanna tell you a secret!” He leans in, eyes wide waiting to hear what I am going to whisper. Usually it’s “I love you” or “I love the way you color” or whatever it is that he’s doing at the moment. Then he tells me a ‘secret’. This is how it went this time:
Me: “I love you my special boy!”
Jacob: “I love the compost truck!”
On days like today I need the funny.
Got a funny kid story?! Tell me.
I need more things to laugh about today!
