I “met” Beth after her visit to my blog a few weeks ago and got to know her a little bit through her cute blog called just me and my life I liked her Friday Fives idea so much that I thought I’d participate from time to time! :-)
This weeks Friday Five is 5 things that make you laugh, giggle, chuckle…
#1: My husband, Peter!
He’s the funniest guy I know! Many things have changed after we got married and especially after we had our little girl (children can just suck the life out of you sometimes regardless of how much you love and adore them! *^^*) but his ability to make me laugh always remained the same if not better! He can turn into an instant comedian whenever I need a little laugh. In fact, I ask him to speak in different accents (my favorite is his French accent) when I get bored or when he’s reading a book to Bella, to which he says that our little girl is bound to have an identity crisis (for having a Korean mommy, an American daddy with German, Lebanese, Finnish and who knows what else blood plus all kinds of confusing accents she’s been hearing since when she was in my womb!)
#2: My little princess, Bella!
Anything and everything she does makes me laugh, giggle and chuckle! I know she is my daughter and all and I’m quite biased, but come on! How cute and adorable is she and how could you not giggle with her ALL THE TIME! :-) Seriously, I love this girl!
He’s a kind of guy that makes you want to hide behind the pillow while you watching TV cause you can’t watch another stupid thing he does or mistake he makes. He’s such a dork but you can’t help liking him! We love chuckling at him!
#4: How Men Think
They’re more like a mystery but they definitely make ma laugh! Sometimes I go ‘really? I mean really?!’ because really, they are unbelievable! :-) ‘Honey, could you put the clothes in the dryer, please?’ does NOT mean literally putting the wet clothes in the dryer and shut the door. It also means actually running the dryer by punching few buttons! Saying ‘I got it, baby, I got it’ repeatedly doesn’t mean you actually got it unless you move your lazy bottom and do it already! ‘Honey, we need to talk’ does NOT mean that you are in trouble all the time (unless you feel guilty of something you actually did and keeping it a secret :-)) and it means that we just need to talk. :-) But then, I’m sure how women think is also a mystery to men and I bet we crack them up big time! Like my husband says, God must have created men and women so differently so that we can learn patience and being merciful and selfless.
Not only the TV show I recently started to watch (the show cracks me up, no joke, cause it’s SO TRUE) but also the real life parenthood stories from ours to all of our friends’. From all the tricks that I come up with to feed my child vegetables to little things that make me happy like pee pee in the potty (who would’ve thought!) to praying for the well-being of Elmo, Abbey, Barney, Foofa, Dorothy the Dinosaur, etc. day after day to trying to squeeze my “big” body into Bella’s tiny little “big” girl’s bed cause she wants me to lie down next to her to asking my husband or other adults to say “yes, Mommy,” forgetting that I’m not talking to my child any more . They are all precious and all but they do make me chuckle and laugh (laugh at myself most of the time!).
