One of my favorite things about being a mother is that my kids find the humor in just about anything. From prancing around the living room in my heels, to a dog in the park wearing a jacket, it doesn't take much for them to crack themselves up. As a person who is anything but funny, I often wonder what my husband and I did to create these little comic geniuses. Without even knowing it, you may be raising a little Jerry Seinfeld of your own. There are clues you're raising a humorous child.
A good belly laugh can do wonders for the entire family. Not only can it lift your spirits, but laughter is a healthy and positive way to deal with stressful situations. Disappointment is a fact of life, and a kid who can laugh rather than throw a tantrum will be much happier overall.
If your kids display any of the qualities on this list, you may have the makings of someone pretty funny on your hands. As parents, try to encourage the stand-up comedian in your kids. Even though they may not make it to Saturday Night Live, they will be much better equipped to deal with the situations life throws at them — and have a lot of fun while they're at it.
