Laugh? No…. cry!
I’ve been experimenting with my kids — with the connection between laughing and crying. Between humor and sadness.
When they cry, as all kids do, over something I determine just isn’t that important, I have been tying to make them laugh.
It amazes me that they are EASY to make laugh when they are crying. They have convinced me that laughing and crying are nearly the same in so many ways… just because it is so easy to switch from one to the other.
(‘Course my kids are getting tired of it, but hey? If your dad can’t torment you, who can?)
