One of my daily goals is to make my husband laugh. This is today’s success story:
We were eating supper–steak and German potato salad. My little two-year-old boy was happily eating his potato salad. Evidently he and I were the only two that cared for it. My daughter Joy was impressed that he would eat it.
“He’s going to be like Mama and love potatoes,” I said.
“Eww, he likes vegetables!” Joy exclaimed.
“Well then, maybe he’ll be like his daddy and love vegetables,” I said.
“No, he won’t. Remember when he threw his peas all over?” (Peals of laughter.)
Having thought about it for a minute, I said, “No, the truth is Daddy likes the IDEA of vegetables. He doesn’t actually like to eat them all that much.”
Jason didn’t say anything for a few minutes. Then he started laughing.
“What’s funny?” I wanted to know.
“What you said about the vegetables. It’s true!”
He really likes to be healthy, but I guess he’d never thought of it this way. I love to hear him laugh. My day is complete!

Laughter is so important in any relationship. I’m glad that you and your husband can share a giggle over such simple things. It makes the daily routine so much more enjoyable, I think. 🙂
I know what you mean. I Love to make my husband laugh! When he really gets laughing he has a great laugh. I think it’s so cute!

I love the inside jokes between my husband and me. The laughter that only he and I get is the best and the sweetest gift! Cute post!

I’m kind of like your husband. I know the vegetables are good for me, and I like to raise them (and they are better fresh from the garden), but I don’t eat nearly as much as I should. Meat, yes. Just froze about 14 pounds of deer burger.

Haha That’s really cute! <3
I wish I can make my bf laugh everyday, too!
I am a boring person w/ a serious personality so it’s a big challenge for me. He’s the one who always make goofy faces and childish sounds to cheer me up. I really hope I can do the same for him.
Btw, the man in our life shares the same name, my bf is also Jason. =)
