J gives me so many reasons to laugh... And I love that.
I recently read an article where a child expert stated laughter in a child helps to improve self-esteem. If that is true, J should have zero self esteem issues. I mean, really - none.
And this morning, upon dropping J off at school, I realized, it is a darn good thing... I'm the mom of a boy.
Could you imagine a girl being offered such snicker worthy meal options as rat tails, puppy poop, or booger burgers?
J responded with hands on hips and a snicker in his face "That's just disgusting Mommy" and then proceeded to tell me a meal option worthy of him. "Eggs with toast please."
However, even this did not pull J out of his crabby morning attitude entirely... To get those I love life smiles as I was taking him to school I kicked off a silly version of a favorite Barney song...
Can you guess how it went?
"I love you, you love me"
Stop Mommy! I'm crabby! I don't want to go to school today. It's cold.
Yep bud, I agree, so I'm singing it silly. Wanna do it with me?
"We're best friends like friends should be... With a big fat LICK, and a booger from me to you, won't you say you SNOT ME TOO!"
And with that... We sang it over & over again all the way to school... Laughing so hard each & every time... Our days could only go well.
As I dropped down to give J a hug on the way out the door, he snuggled in & said "I SNOT YOU MOMMY!"
Seriously... Nothing he could have said would have made me smile more...
