Flashback Friday: Spark of Genius
It’s no secret that humor is kind of a big deal to me. My kids learned early on that if they were in trouble but could make me laugh, their punishment would be 17% less severe.
And I love the fact that all of my kids have a very unique slice of their own humor personalities. Jacob is the unsuspecting dry wit. Jase is the 11 year old, still-feeling-out-his-humor-roots-so-lets-just-make-up-weird-stuff guy. Haven is three. Everything she does is either infuriating or hilarious.
And then there’s Austin: the kid who has kept us laughing from day one. Today we flashback to one of my favorite Austin stories.
Austin [running out of his room at bedtime]: My short are making SPARKS!
Merriem: They’re what?
Austin: SPARKS! They’re making SPARKS! When I got in bed and pulled the covers up, there were blue sparks everywhere!
Merriem: That’s just static. It’s fine. Go to bed.
Austin: But it’s SPARKS!
