Laughter is the best medicine!

So much of what we read on here is stressful so this post is for those moments when you just gotta laugh! :D

Today, before lunch my mom was in the bathroom and I went in to help her. I asked her if she "had a poop." She said "do I want some soup?" When I told her what I said, we both started laughing so hard I thought I was going to wet MY pants!

When she tells me she can't walk to the bathroom with her walker, I start singing "Over hill, over dale as we hit the dusty trail" and she chimes in "as the cassons (spelling?) go rolling along." We spend a lot of the day having impromptu sing alongs.

I put out some bird feeders outside the dining room window and so far no birds but we enjoy watching the squirrel's antics. He's a hoot!

Why not post something fun, funny or kooky that made you laugh. I know there must be something...:)

Thanks for the atta girl...I get most of these forwarded from my good friend in South Carolina. Good for you to cheer on your dad. Sometimes humor can take away our fears and stress. So here are a few more for your enjoyment!

JulieQ, does the Q stand for cutie? You're a doll! Where'd you get the joke book? I need a copy. Or are these all original? We need to publish you! Thank you for a little lightness in our otherwise dreary, weary, bleary day. Joy! Thank you for bringing some joy to a few tired and hurting hearts.

Last night the nursing home called. I hate to see their number on my caller ID. Dad fell again, they think. Housekeeping went by and saw him on his knees. I told them I didn't think he was praying. They asked him if he fell and how. He said yes but didn't know the rest of the answer. An hour later he couldn't even remember having fallen. I visited and asked him, "What were you doing? Trying out for the circus? Do you want to be an acrobat? Would you like us to bring you a trampoline or a flying trapeze?" I love to tease the Dad who used to tease me. He responded, "What's a circus? Acrobat?" Not only can't he remember being on the floor, he can't even remember my name! Still, sometimes it's funny. Just hope he never forgets how to laugh.

Mia, Isn't it great when we can get them to smile for us :) As difficult as caregiving is for us, it's equally tough to grow older and more dependent for them.

My mother likes to sing so we devise a lot of songs to get things done. She's religious and when she says she can't stand up, I start singing "Stand Up Stand Up for Jesus"...that gets her going. When she can't get out of bed it's "Wake up, Wake up you sleepy head, get up get up get outta bed" from When the Red Red Robin Comes Bob Bob Bobbin Along." When we walk to the bathroom we sing "Over the River and Through the Woods to Grandmother's House We Go." She always joins in singing. It's surprising how many songs work in these situations. She has even started singing some songs herself that fit the situations.

I find that when we laugh or sing, we distract them and ourselves away from the pain or something they don't want to do and it makes us happier.

If you want to watch a fun DVD, get Mamma Mia and you'll be dancing around the room!

My father moves VERY SLOWLY through the house, so sometimes when I see he is getting frustrated I will tell him, "Hey Joe, slow it down. This isn't a race, you know!" He will usually give me a smile, which is so rare for him, but we both have a laugh.

Children Writing About The Ocean....

1) - This is a picture of an octopus. It has eight testicles. (Kelly, age 6)

2) - Oysters' balls are called pearls. (Jerry, age 6)

3) - If you are surrounded by ocean you are an island. If you don't have ocean

their shiny tails, but how on earth do mermaids get pregnant? Like, really?

my Dad keeps yelling at my Mom, and my big sister has just got pregnant, so I
can't think what to write. (Amy, age 8)

doesn't know is why he quit being a sailor and married my mom. (James, age 7)

Today we watched the film "Batteries Not Included" and my mom loved it! She laughed at the Jessica Tandy's character (who probably has Alzheimers). The old couple dance in their restaurant to 40's music so she could relate to that. It's a nice little film that anyone can enjoy.
