Toddlers laugh 400 times a day and adults laugh 15 times a day. I think we knocked out about 25 laughs at breakfast. Everything becomes a game. My granddaughter, Naomi, eats a few bites and then slides her plate to me. I pretend to eat a bite and then slide it back to her and she laughs. And we do it over and over. Laughter lowers stress and releases those life giving endorphins. I wish such simple things brought me that kind of joy!

They also LOVE repetition....which sometimes drives us crazy as adults. It always amazed me that if I could get into the game....laughing, the repetition part didin't bother me. Adults have a much harder time "playing" (some adults).
