Laughing Babies

posted by Jennifer E. Jones

There is truly nothing better than the sound of a baby laughing. I don’t even have kids, and I chuckle every time I see something like this. I saw this YouTube video making the rounds on Facebook a few days ago, and now the national media has picked up on it. It’s been a hit ever since with millions and millions of views.Oh, the simple joys of ripping paper. I hope that this child always stays amused by small wonders.Read More:10 Spiritual Lessons from My Daughter Welcome to the World!

When I was a young child, my mother used to say to me: do not make your brother (or sister) laught to much, because it may have hiccups. But when I a father, about 30 years ago, I loved to make him laughting because it is one of the most interesting things of this world. Today I also think: we start our lives crying, then, we discover the laught and we grew happy until one day we are introduced to sadness. Then, our lives becomes very serious. Perhaps may be this the reason we like to hear that wonderful sound. I beg your pardon for my poor english.

This baby can teach us something, that we should laugh as easy as this baby does, even with ripped paper. This is a life lesson.

Well, I must admit that this laughing baby is a hoot. Now for the
serious part of this trick. Baby is being taught that ripping paper is funny. Now let’s talk about the tearing of pages from their baby books and Mom and Dad’s books, also.
FUNNY, I THINK NOT. I still love a baby laughing.

It made me laugh. What I noticed is that he loved the sound and was trying to tear it himself. I think he is probably bright. Dad could hold his hands in his and together rip the paper. I wonder whatit is that is funny? The sound or the action. He sure loves it.I wonder how it all started? Send it to Aol as a deterent to Charlie Sheens problems.

Bev Y. get a life! Are you kidding you watched that video and all you got out of it is it might teach the kid to tear up books! This wasn’t a book. It looked like junk mail and are you saying that you don’t tear up junk mail. Get real!!! The video was the perfect medicine as I watched from my sick bed yesterday when ELLEN showed the clip on her show.

Laughter is so important to those of us suffering from chronic pain. If we can do it in the face of everything pulling us in another direction, we can stay young and healthy for a very long time. I expect this is a very intelligent baby who has mastered the woes of the universive with one piece of paper!
