Each morning during the week I get up between 5 and 6 a.m. (Closer to 6, or after, if I'm running late.) After I eat my breakfast, take my medicine and get dressed - if I'm on time - I wake up one of the middle children.

Usually I choose my 3-year-old daughter because she's normally pleasant and sweet in the morning. The other day I tapped her a little, sat her up and put her feet on the floor. I stood her up and gave her a hug as she continued to wake up. Normally I hold onto her shoulders to guide her or hold her hand, and I think she has gotten used to that because she keeps her eyes closed.

For some reason, a couple of days ago, I wasn't guiding her or holding her hand. I turned my head to the left because a toy on the floor caught my attention and before I could turn back around she had ran into the door jam.

I grabbed her and kissed her head while moving her in the right direction and trying to hold in my laughter. It was so funny because she didn't make a sound. There was just the thump of her head against the door jam.

I guess it didn't really wake her up all the way. Later I thought, 'What a bad mommy to laugh at my baby.' However, that didn't keep me from chuckling at the memory.

Has anyone close to you done something where you have to hide your laughter or smile?
