Comedic Children Have Truthful Thoughts We Probably Don’t Want To Know
Have you ever wondered what comedic children are really thinking?
I know I have! I especially wonder what my son is thinking. I can tell him something and he will begin to give me the hint of a smile. I generally know he is thinking something I might not like. Children take things a person says very literal. I will tell my son that I am “old as dirt.” I wonder what that phrase “old as dirt” really means to him? I am beginning to have my suspicions that I might not want to know!
Life blessed me with a comedic child. He is practicing being the center of attention and wants noticed for his humor. Having a son that enjoys funny things is challenging and enjoyable.The enjoyment comes in the ability to laugh. He can laugh at himself and laugh at others easily. I try to manage the laughter and explain what is acceptable and isn’t acceptable to laugh about. I know that if a person has comedic children they could become not so funny adults if we don’t teach them about humor.
Comedic children are challenging to anyone. Most parents of a future class clown understand exactly what I am talking about without having to write another word. My son is the type of child that will run around the room with a toy bucket on his head and fall on purpose to make others laugh. He is always watching others to gauge reactions and see what he can do to improve his comedic skills.
Recently he was playing with some cars in the floor. Playing with cars in the floor is something that most children do. As soon as I walked into the room he decided to bring his toys to life. He started making them laugh and running over one another. He would even say an occasional “I make you laugh!” as he was playing with the cars.
I watched, smiled and laughed as he played and I finally said to him, “Your cars are filled with humor.” He never a missed beat and looked at me and said, “No, my cars filled with gas! That’s humorous not humor!” He then looked away from me and laughed out loud.
If we only knew what they were thinking……we probably wouldn’t really want to know!
