Witnessing a child’s language development is an amazing piece of the parenting journey and we have been blown away by Laurel’s sense of humor and all of the jokes she has been making lately. I was interested to read a toddler humor article citing that research suggests that humor is learned, not inherited; this can only spell trouble for our future given that dry sarcasm is one of the foundations of our household (click here to learn more about how to encourage a child’s sense of humor.)
Meanwhile, more evidence for the case file regarding nurture over nature in the humor department. As we walked by Kotobukiya in Porter Square yesterday, the whole family started giggling madly when we saw this homage to the Red Sox’s recent acquisition, Daisuke Matsuzaka.
Let’s just hope that Matsuzaka doesn’t show up to spring training with no pants on.
