    I don’t think you’re missing much. I have always been the instigator in my house. I love laughter. There is nothing better than a child who is laughing.

    My son had his 12tb birthday party over the weekend. His one wish was to have two friends spend the night. One of them I have raised since he was 2. We were discussing how they would ride those little red cars with the yellow roof down a hill and into a fence. His friend turned red and just laughed so hard we all began laughing hysterically. At that moment, I realized all of those amazing, crazy, funny times I shared with my son and his friends.

    Laughter is a great way to bond not only your family, but people in general. Today, I will laugh and embrace silliness.

    1. Oh that was just beautiful Sara!! Loved hearing that story, and you are so right…With my parents being so much fun our home growing up always had many extra guests who I know were drawn to our home because it was such a warm, welcoming and fun place to be! Great reminder. Have an amazing week! XO

  2. Tim Hawkins, Brad Stine, and Jeff Allen are favorites here. I’m usually the one that deploys humor first. It can cut the frustration of homeschooling many days.

    1. Awesome–thanks for sharing Jolene! And good for you…anyone crazy enough to homeschool definitely needs a sense of humor (haha! :)) XO aloha-

  3. First of all, we love Jim Gaffigan too! Saw him live once and we own the King Baby CD. But the one thing that never fails in my house of boys is the book Chicken Butt. It is a silly book about a young boy who asks “you know what” and when the person asks “what” he answers “chicken butt”. It goes on with other things that rhyme. It makes zero sense but every time we read it we are in tears laughing and it usually brings out all of us trying to come up with silly rhymes of our own!

    1. I love it! I feel like I’ve heard of that book but our family definitely should get it. My youngest has a weird thing with the word “Chicken” — he puts it into everything possible. 🙂 Thanks for sharing! Much aloha-

  4. My favorite thing about my husband is his ability to make me laugh….pretty much daily. Humor is one of the cornerstones in our house. So glad to see the links and this particular blog. Thank you Monica!

    1. I love that Laura–So glad to hear it. Thanks for stopping in…Much Aloha 🙂
