“The fact is: almost everything is funny. You just have to have a way of looking at it”- Jerry Seinfeld
This philosophy is one that serves working parents well. We can so easily get trapped in the sad story, the this is hard story, the when will this get better story. In doing so we are missing the in the moment opportunities for laughter and joy.
Look for the ridiculous in every day life. It is always funnier when you look back on it, so imagine how you will view these scenarios in a few years time and try them on for size right now.
