COMING SOON! (January 2019)
Laughter for Your Soul:
Who would have thought that parenting would come with so many interesting components? I mean, at least three doctors informed me that I couldn’t have kids, and by all measures, they were brilliant individuals that made six-figure incomes. However, the experience of my first child offered tremendous joy and equal levels of pain. Never did I anticipate laughter would factor in to my life’s equation. From receiving the very first toothless smile to unexpected pee in my face, parenthood is quite a journey! Whomever stated that bodily liquid tasted more like green tea possibly lived two inches away from a latrine! For real? It baffles the mind to think that children could aim with perfect alignment into a parent’s face, yet struggle making it into a large toilet bowl. To this day, it is a phenomenon that no one can articulate; laymen’s terms please!
We are parents. We love our jobs. (Yes, parenting is a JOB!). We go with the flow and allow for changes; we fight for every cause, perform litigation between siblings and love until we hurt. In God’s own humor, he gave us these little creatures to raise, making sure we don’t mess up too badly along the way. Many of us wish for a do-over. You know, the one without the epidural and the endless hours of pushing.
Take this journey with me as I share the many reasons we are commissioned to laugh at this thing called parenting. Taking it seriously will land many of us at the nearest asylum. (I have Mapquest and know where all of them are located in my area.I can drive there by myself.)
I would love to hear your stories as well! After all, we parents know that laughter is good for the soul!
