Wise Words Wednesday: Laughter and child's play

"The child in you, like all children, loves to laugh, to be around people who can laugh at themselves and life. Children instinctively know that the more laughter we have in our lives, the better." ~Wayne Dyer


I can't tell you how much I love this photo, and the fact that Adam pretty much walked in the door after work, dropped his stuff and immediately engaged with Lorelai. They cooked up some bananas with ranch dressing, flipped some eggs, and laughed the whole time while Lorelai was being her usual hilarious self.

That's pure joy on his face right there. Let me tell you--he's never more attractive to me than when he's being an awesome dad like this. And these moments will mean so much to Lorelai as she grows up, knowing that her daddy was more than happy to drop everything and play with her.

I think sometimes we let mundane, unimportant things--checking email one last time before dinner, sorting through the mail, fixing lunches, yada yada--get in the way of joyful moments like this. From the looks of it, we could all use a little more child's play and laughter in our lives.


  1. That is so incredibly sweet! And I agree, my husband is most attractive when he's totally engaged with our son.

  2. Oh my goodness...I love this post. And that photo. I also love when my husband comes home from work and he's just truly excited to see our daughter. And she runs right up to him screaming a happy scream. I love watching them interact as well. There's just something about a daddy playing with his babies. Following your blog now!


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
