I laugh a lot - I’m lucky like that. I have a witty husband who keeps me laughing. I have friends who all seem to have a great sense of humour. I am amused daily by things that my co-workers say and do. I have had Twitter buddies make me laugh out loud - even on the bus (so not cool). There’s so much to laugh at - in the joyful, fun way. I’m really blessed to have such fun, funny people everywhere I turn.
The person whose antics I’ve treasured most this year was Brandon. He’s at an age where his personality is starting to blossom and grow. He is starting to pick up on the nuance of teasing - and he’s trying it out. He knows that there are things that will make his mommy and daddy laugh and he takes great joy in making that happen.
I think the most exciting part of that is knowing that to be teased and tease in return takes a certain amount of trust and confidence. Trust that someone teasing you isn’t doing so in a hurtful matter. Confidence that you know someone well enough to tease them about something and know they’ll respond positively.
Seeing this develop in him gives me assurance that we’re doing all right.
