Though my little girl will be three in May, she’s already experienced just about every emotion. She’s had happy moments, sad moments, frustrating moments, excited moments; you name it! But some of my favorite moments are the humorous ones. Not only do they help to get the both of us through the sad and frustrating times when Quinn becomes inconsolable or whiny, but they lighten my spirits and make it so that I can’t be upset with her for long if she displays a displeasing behavior or makes me a little frustrated.
As the old adage goes, “Laughter is the best medicine.” Help Guide, A trusted non-profit guide to mental health and well-being, provided an online article on this very topic stating, “Laughter helps you stay emotionally healthy.” I truly believe that the humor and laughter I experience with my daughter is helping to build a solid bond between us and keeps me motivated to be the best mom I can be. It puts a smile on my face too! What would we do without humor and laughter?
All the best,
