Laugh, laugh, laugh!

TGIF!!!! Wooo hooo!

Today we want you to take a cue from your children and just laugh without restraint.  Children laugh over 300 times a day while adults laugh less than 20 times a day. What happens to us as we age–too much stress and worries? Luckily now that you are a Mom you can benefit from your childs unconditional laughter. Try not take life so seriously–the moments when you would only smile you should replace with a big laugh. The only way to enjoy your days with your children is to be fully in the moment with them. It has helped us both out a lot by making our housekeeping schedules by allowing time during the day to actually just be with our kids and not worry about the “work.”

We found some health benefits that a good hearty laugh can provide for you;  

A good hearty laugh can help:

  • reduce stress
  • lower blood pressure
  • elevate mood
  • boost immune system
  • improve brain functioning
  • protect the heart
  • connect you to others
  • foster instant relaxation
  • make you feel good

Below are some hilarious funny mom stories that are sure to tickle your funny bone! When kids are around there is never a dull moment. If you have any funny stories you want to share then leave them in our comment box. We would love to hear them!
Funny Moms Stories #1
I walked into a hair salon with my husband and three kids in tow and  asked loudly, “How much do you charge for a shampoo and a blow job?”   I turned around and walked back out and never went back.  My husband didn’t say a word…   he knew better.

Funny Moms Stories #2:
I was at the golf store comparing different kinds of golf balls. I was unhappy with the women’s type I had been using.   After browsing for several minutes, I was approached by one of the good-looking gentlemen who works at the store. He asked if he could  help me.  Without thinking, I looked at him and said, “I think I like playing  with men’s balls.”

Funny Moms Stories #3:
My sister and I were at the mall and passed by a store that sold a  variety of candy and nuts.
As we were looking at the display case, the boy behind the counter asked if we needed any help.  I replied, “No, I’m just looking at your nuts.”  My sister started to laugh hysterically.  The boy grinned, and I turned beet-red and walked away.  To this day, my sister has never let me forget.

Funny Moms Stories #4:
While in line at the bank one afternoon, my toddler decided to release some pent-up energy and ran amok.  I was finally able to grab hold of her after receiving looks of   disgust and annoyance from other patrons.  I told her that if she did not start behaving “right now” she would be punished. 
To my horror, she looked me in the eye and said in a voice just as  threatening, “If you don’t let me go right now, I will tell Grandma that I saw you kissing Daddy’s pee-pee last night!”  The silence was deafening after this enlightening exchange.  Even the tellers stopped what they were doing.  I mustered up the last of my dignity and walked out of the bank with my daughter in tow.  The last thing I heard as the door closed behind me,  were screams of laughter. 

Funny Moms Stories #5:
Have you ever asked your child a question too many times?  My three-year-old son had a lot of problems with potty training and I  was on him constantly.  One day we stopped at Taco Bell for a quick lunch in between errands.  It was very busy, with a full dining room.  While enjoying my taco, I smelled something funny, so of course I   checked my seven-month-old daughter, and she was clean.  Then I realized that Danny had not asked to go potty in a while.
I asked him if he needed to go, and he said “No”. 
I kept thinking “Oh Lord, that child has had an accident, and I don’t  have any clean clothes with me.” 
Then I said, “Danny, are you SURE you didn’t have an accident?”   “No,” he replied.  I just KNEW that he must have had an accident, because the smell was  getting worse. 
So, I asked one more time, “Danny, did you have an accident?”  This time he jumped up, yanked down his pants, bent over, spread his cheeks and yelled “SEE MOM, IT’S JUST FARTS!!” 
While 30 people nearly choked to death on their tacos laughing, he calmly pulled up his pants and sat down.  An older couple made me feel better, thanking me for the best laugh hey’d ever had!

Funny Moms Stories #6
This one had most of the state of Michigan laughing for 2 days and a  very embarrassed female news anchor who will, in the future, likely  think before she speaks.  What happens when you predict snow, but don’t get any?  We had a female news anchor who,the day after it was supposed to have snowed and didn’t, turned to the weatherman and asked:
“So Bob, where’s that 8 inches you promised me last night?”
Not only did HE have to leave the set, but half the crew did too, they
were laughing so hard!

  1. Haha. This is a great post. My goodness, I know it has been said that people who are married live longer, but what about people with kids? If laughter is so good for you, then our daughter — Sophie — must be adding years to our life everyday. She is such a joy.

    I don’t really have a story to share. At least not like the above. But I am sure I will someday 🙂

    Though I will say, that sometimes Sophie will hunch her shoulders [reminds me of a drill sargent] and start telling us all about it. We have no idea what she’s saying, but she definitely means it whatever it is. She looks so serious. It’s just so cute.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, by the way, and I would not mind at all if you added me to the blog roll. That would be great. I added this blog to my recommended sites. I am glad I found it!
