This morning my 5+ year daughter slipped in to my bed for a snuggle.
She looked at my face and said, ‘mum, you’ve got wrinkles’.
‘I know!’ I said with enthusiasm. ‘Isn’t it great? It means I’ve been laughing alot’.
I went on to explain that wrinkles were a sign that you’ve had a good life and that you’ve had lots of laughter.
She promptly laughed and asked; ‘Mum? Have I got wrinkles yet?’ Laughed again. ‘How about now?’
I told her she would have to laugh many more times in her life to earn her own wrinkles.
Not a bad ambition to have.
