Smile like a Baby

smile like a baby

Evidently kids smile 400 times a day and adults only 20 — something along those lines isn’t hard to believe.

My baby recently learned how to smile and that’s all he wants to do.  It’s so strange to have someone stare happily at you for ages and want nothing in return but a smile back.  I feel like I’m the sun in his sky and wonder what I have done to deserve such special treatment.

But when I think about my husband and I, we never smile that frequently and we’re both very happy people.  It seems natural and I think it could be helpful to smile more.  It can help attract the perfect mate, move up the ladder at work or make a new friend.  Plus, it’s so simple to do:  just take  the corners of your mouth and move them up.  Then repeat. :)

  1. I found myself smiling as I read this post, and you know what? I actually felt my mood improve! Not that it needed improving, since I tend to be a pretty easygoing and happy guy in general, but it’s cool that the simple act of smiling can have such a profound effect. Thanks!

    • Hopefully you can remember to smile even when you aren’t reading our blog… that will be the real test :)
