PARENTS NEED TO LAUGH

           Here's an example: The other day, I told a restaurant worker I see often, that he looked tired. He laughed and said, "Last night I woke up because I heard running water. When I got to the bathroom, my two-year-old was standing in the sink, with the water running full blast, brushing his teeth. It took me two hours to clean up all the water. Yes, I'm tired." But he was still laughing. 
            Long time funny paper cartoon, Family Circus, gets children. And the quotation "A day without laughter is a day wasted," offers what parents need to remember when they want to rip their hair out by the roots. Life as a parent is more fun with a sense of humor.  
            The quote commonly attributed to Charlie Chaplin and Groucho Marx, was actually created much earlier by French author, Nicolas Chamfort, famous for his wit, And to think, he didn't even have children.
