When I’m not feeling in the best of moods, nothing can cheer me up like a smiling, laughing baby. Nobody ever wants to make a laughing baby settle down. After all, what are you going to do? Tell him to act his age?
I didn’t think it was possible for a baby to be too happy. Then I found this article from the 2010 Psychology Today that reported covered Angelman Syndrome. This is a rare, neurological disorder that has continual laughter as one of its symptoms. My first thought was:
- Mom was right. No matter what it is, you CAN have too much of a good thing.
- Now parents have another thing to worry about.
Has someone told you to stop worrying about your child, only to discover later your suspicions were right? Or have you worried about something your child did only to find out everything was fine?
