“Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly.” G. K. Chesterton
Homeschooling is not without its tensions. Nothing truly good ever is. But one of the blessings of homeschooling is the increased opportunity of taking in humorous moments with those most dear to you. And those special moments provide a chance to “lighten up”.
The new Laugh with Me column is your place to share your humorous moments. Perhaps your toddler or child put two and two together and ended up with something surprising, outrageous, or just plain hilarious. Sometimes they just did the unexpected, in all seriousness, prompting your laugh-out-loud response!
Sure, in the moment that you’re in those situations, finding the humor may be a challenge. Truth be told, they can be aggravating, especially in the sacred silence before your morning cup of coffee. But in your reflection afterwards, invariably you will find the humor.
“Humor can get in under the door while seriousness is still fumbling at the handle” GKC

How about humorous wish-I’d-remembered-it-then responses to homeschooling critics? Help others with that clever rejoinder for that perfect moment!
After all, this section is for us all!
