Parenting. With the trials, tribulations and tons of responsibility that come with the gig, there are also unending opportuities to laugh.
Here's a peek into my world last week:
Jumping into the backseat of the car after school, the kid informed me she wanted a "Yonk." You can imagine the mother-daughter exchange with my, "you want a what?!!" being met with the incredulous "don't you know anything" stream of descriptors of the middle schooler . . .
I had one today at school. They're at the store. They are my favorite. I love them. Yonks, you know.<insert eye roll here> It's candy . . . they're chocolate. . . and minty.
I couldn't stop laughing when I quickly realized what she was talking about:
And there we have it - the ties that bind. I can see it now . . . candy dishes, graduation, wedding and yonks all around!
On this Thanksgiving weekend I give thanks for my husband and daughter, that they hang with me no matter what and above all, their ability to always make me laugh.
Who makes you laugh?
