How Does Your Child Make You Smile?

child smile

Kids have a natural tendency to make people smile.

And I think we have the tendency to smile even more if it’s our own kid doing something adorable.Β Every morning, I look forward to my son waking up and cuddling next to me. I know that there’s something about the warmth of a parent’s body that makes a child feel secure. That thought makes me smile.

Whenever I see him do something for the first time — like when he first started rolling over on his own, started crawling, and started walking — those moments make me smile.

I love seeing him solve a problem on his own. Like when he puts his toys back into his toy bin, when he tries to open the door to our room using the car keys (LOL) and when he knocks on the door and doesn’t come in until we say “come in”.

My son made me smile yesterday when he was playing with the tablet. He just kept on laughing every time he hears the buzzer in one of the installed games.

I hope this video of my son makes you smile too. πŸ™‚

  2. My children are grown, but my grand daughter lives with us and I guess I would have to say just hearing her voice from the time I wake up when she says, “Good Morning, Grandma!” Just gotta love her! πŸ™‚

  3. My daughter is a teenager who has a very goofy side. Every time she lets that side show, I have no choice but to smile. Sometimes she does it when I catch her taking silly self-portrait photos, other times I catch her chuckling to herself when she’s posting on Facebook with her friends. She never ceases to make me smile. πŸ™‚

  4. Your video(which was very cute) reminded me of when my kids had a laughing Elmo. As with your child laughing when he heard the buzzer, my kids cracked up when Elmo started laughing. It was so funny that it made who ever was watching to start laughing along with them. Thanks for the memories.

  5. My cousin’s son, Charlie, is the cutest, smartest kid ever. Just looking at him makes me smile, and when he opens his mouth, I’m in awe. I never have a conversation with him without feeling just a little bit happier afterwards…

  6. I do not have children but I have a little 9lb dog that makes me smile all the time…just thinking about him while I’m at work makes me smile and anxious to see him.

  13. My three-year-old does not articulate his blends properly. So he is constantly saying words, that should start with a blend, as a different word. He came out the other day, tattling on his older sister, saying, “Tell her top.” I asked what it was about her top he was mad at and he yelled that she would not STOP mocking him. Very funny.
