Little Miss Giggle Fit

First of all, I'd like to announce that I am no longer on strike.  My kids came to their senses and apologized for their incessant harassment.  My daughter even got up early and made breakfast for me this morning.  Wasn't that nice?  Now my husband - well, he's another story!  We'll save that for next time.

Here's the story for today:  I think my daughter blew some kind of gasket in her head.  She could not stop laughing.  "Why?" you ask.  Well, I'm not really sure.  She said I said something funny.  I couldn't even tell you what.  I think it had something to do with keeping her spittle to herself.

Anyway, she started laughing uncontrollably.  She collapsed on to her bed, her face as red as a tomato, gasping for breath. 

I watched her for a few minutes and started getting concerned.  "Excuse me," I said.  "Do you need to be hospitalized?"

That made her laugh more.  Tears rolled down her face.  She could barely breath.  I figured I should just keep my mouth shut before I made things any worse.

Ten minutes later, she finally had herself under control.

"Are you okay?" I asked.

"Yeah, Mom, but don't ever make me laugh, again.  I might die next time!"

Okay.  I'll try to remember that.

  1. Nothing is more fun than watching your children laugh uncontrollably! Even if it was because of you!

  4. Humor is a great tool in the parenting toolbox. I find humor extremely difficult to "do" on purpose, however. So I say be thankful for those God given moments!

  5. It must have been a real "Kodak moment"!
    There's nothing as endearing as watching a little one having a hearty laugh!

    (And I really empathise with regards to the Symphonic Orchestra visit...)

    1. It certainly was a "Kodak moment!"

      Too bad you don't live near me. I would've taken you to the concert. As a fellow musician, I'm sure you would've enjoyed it!

  7. When The Hurricane was a junior at her ritzy prep school, she had a giggling fit in the library. She actually ended up sitting under a table, laughing. A new librarian was on duty. She tossed out The Hurricane and reported that she seemed to be on drugs. That made all the other librarians giggle because The Hurricane was their pet. I never knew why The Hurricane was giggling, but I figure everyone's entitled to an occasional giggling fit. I have one every time Elvis Aaron Schwarz has gas.

    Love,
    Janie

  10. LOL. I can laugh like that from time to time, but my excuse is extreme tiredness. : ) Better laughs than grumpiness.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
