How to make your toddler laugh.

I wish I had a dash cam.

I was dropping my lad to band rehearsal at 7 am when we saw a classic ‘Dad’ moment…..

Toddler in a stroller, Dad behind on skateboard, both tearing down a hill in Glebe, a city fringe suburb of Sydney. Dad loses it. He falls from the skateboard at speed, never letting go of the stroller. The board goes flying, the stroller tips back, Dad hangs on and faceplants next to the toddler – head and knees on the pavement stopping their momentum.

The Dad & toddler start laughing in hysterics. So did we! Wish we’d recorded it. Kids just love seeing their parents hurt themselves in some slapstick way! I unintentionally specialise in it…..Dadosity at work.

How do you make your toddler laugh? Preferably without losing any skin!
