A Little Sad
I have this friend, who I met a few months ago in an antenatal class. Turns out she had her baby just a few days after I did, and anyway, we meet up occasionally and talk on the phone. But she said something to me yesterday that I found incredibly sad.. we were talking about my son, who's begun to laugh a lot, and she said she thinks the reason her daughter doesn't laugh is because she (my friend) doesn't have anything to laugh about.

Oh dear, that is sad. I read somewhere that making your child laugh for even just 30 seconds per day helps them become happy, well-adjusted adults. I don't know how true that is but it's something that has stuck with me and now, whenever I hear one of my boys laugh at me, whether I intended it or not, I treasure it.ReplyDelete
