Big People Never Laugh

We had soup today for lunch, and Isaac was trying to teach Meagan how to say ZOOOOP - it's from 'Today is Monday,' and Eric Carle book. We started talking about how hard Sebastian laughed at that silly word the first time we read that book. Then Isaac says, "But, Mom, big people never laugh, do they?" An honest observation of a 4-year-old...

Yikes!!! Are we really all a bunch of sour pusses? Is it really so far gone that we can't find humor in the silly little day-to-day stuff? Why is it that kids have an amazing gift of laughter that seems to be totally lost on adults? And as it sunk in, it started to feel like a punch in the gut...I am his main example of 'big people.' Wow...looks like it's time to lighten up!
