A mom is a comedienne because she is the primary source of happiness in a child’s life. The resounding call of your days is to stir up joyful moments and then to splash liberally in those experiences with your children. Teach children of every age that it really is more fun to serve the Lord rather than to be in bondage to the lies of the culture!
Celebrate every day that you have with your children as a rare and precious gift that is worth more than corporate promotions, stocks and bonuses and career prestige.
Sing silly and sweet songs with your children because you can never have too much music in your home!
Tell jokes to your children … why not treat them to “The Joke of the Day!” at the dinner table every evening?! Teach your children that life is more abundant when there is something to be happy and laugh about!
You know … school is hard and kids are mean … life isn’t always fair … but moms can always deliver the rich gift of genuine joy!
Make cookies with your children on an ordinary afternoon … play with play dough and don’t get frustrated because they have made a mess … let your children use glitter often!
Play dress-up with your children and travel to far-away and make believe places together. Make green mashed potatoes on St. Patrick’s Day and serve hamburgers for breakfast and pancakes for supper on April Fool’s Day.
Teach your children to celebrate … to laugh … and to sing! Make sure that they believe that their home is the best place in the entire world simply because you are the mom at their house.
One of my goals as a mother was to ensure that my home was the happiest home on the street. I definitely wasn’t the coolest mom … or the youngest mom … or the skinniest mom … or the richest mom … but my home was a place of unreserved joy, laughter and music!
I can tell you right now … I don’t wish that I had spanked more … but I do wish that we had laughed more!
She is … a joy-filled comedienne!
