Laughing through Life

August 1, 2012


Written by Marykate Wurster, mother of 3 wonderful children, Gladwyne, PA

My children keep me laughing. It’s hard to take life too seriously when you are surrounded by things like “egg people”.

Meet Mr. and Mrs. Egg

Other times they are “bunny people”.

Sometimes my brother gets in on the fun.

Even when serious, they are funny.

Take me to your people.


My youngest daughter likes to draw on herself in marker sometimes. This is not funny. If she happened to use a sharpie, it would really not be funny. She likes to apply large amounts of sunscreen on herself, yesterday coating the black leather interior of the car in a white film. Also not funny. But then she will come running at me with her arms wide, and give me a huge hug squealing “sneak attack”!  And I forget about the marker, and sunscreen. Give me some egg people and sneak attack hugs, and I can handle anything.

    Sooooooooo cute!!!! These egg people are adorable. Children do change your perspective on life. I read a quote that read a child’s smile can heal the soul(which of course made me cry) and it is true. My black car hasn’t yet been coated in white but I would definitly reccomend earthworm carpet cleaner. I use it everywhere for two little guys who seem to love dirt… I would pee my pants laughing if Amanda ever got a hold of a sharpie. I too would be mortified though if Jack and Sean did the same. They love my pens. I maybe should start hiding the sharpies. 😉 I loved; thanks! :)

    I do hide the sharpies, and they all know – off limits! And I have to say I would never let her know – but when she does ‘illustrate herself’ I cant help but laugh sometimes. XXOO
