What makes you laugh?
This blog post is by Nicola Baird sharing ideas about thrifty, creative and eco-friendly ways to raise children. This post is about belly laughs. For more info about my book Homemade Kids, with lots of ideas about parenting click here.
This week I’ve laughed a lot because:
- A seven-year-old who does an after school club with me gave me the choice of being a) a vegetarian dog or b) a woolly mammoth. Mostly my life choices relate to price and colour. I went for the dog option. I think she felt I hadn’t been listening…
- While discussing the problems head teachers can face – eg, accusations of financial irregularities – over dinner one evening, my big daughter, 14, gave a detailed description of what she will be wearing (a bizarre fairy costume with bodice and nipped in bat-wing sleeves) should she ever be marched off any premises accused of “financial irregularities”. Best to be prepared!
- My 11-year-old tripped over the dog (yes, poor dog), but slapstick always makes me giggle.
Without kids around what would I have laughed at?
Over to you
With or without kids what’s been enjoyable this week?
