Since my daughter was born my inner child has come out more often than it should. Being a single parent and raising a child on my own, it pays to act silly now and then. Okay, I don’t act silly now and then, it’s more or less an every day thing. I do it to make my little girl laugh. The sound of her laughter, the presence of her smile helps me to relieve stress. Isn’t there a saying that laughter is the best medicine?
Not to mention I think my acting silly pays off. Sometimes I would run into the room when I hear her favorite cartoon’s theme song playing and sing and dance too it. She would sit on the couch smiling at me. I know I look goofy doing it, but I’ve recently caught her doing the same thing.
Yesterday I was working on a few important things that involves my college and getting my tuition paid, that I didn’t want to be interrupted. The look on my daughter’s face could break a thousand hearts when I told her I was a little busy and would play with her in a few minutes. Finally after getting nowhere with the other party on the phone or a response through the email, I decided my daughter was more important and I could deal with this matter later.
