The boy! He is hilarious. It's so great to see a child develope their personalities.
The Boy has from somewhere (maybe preschool) learned about telling jokes. But it's still a little mixed up in his brain. He GETS simple jokes. But has a little problem pulling them off. Last night in the car on our way to a foster parent meeting, he said,"Daddy, I'm gonna tell you a joke." Daddy said, "OK, tell me". He said,"Why does grass grow?" I'm thinking, boy, this should be good. Daddy said," I don't know, D@vid, why DOES grass grow? The Boy said, "I don't know, I thought you knew."
OK, maybe you had to be there.
But it was hilarious. The Boy laughed and laughed, he thought he'd just told the greatest joke ever.
He's at the age where he loves knock, knock jokes. But comes up with some pretty outragous "things" behind the door like:
who's there?
a monkey
a monkey who?
a monkey in a tree with a banana!
He thinks he's so clever.
Then we all laugh and laugh like fools :)

If he was any cuter, I'd have to eat him up.

Hows the foster presidency thing going?

Oh, dear I remember the joke phase. Why did the chicken cross the road? Because he was hungry-because he was going to the store, etc. Pretty soon every sentence turns into a joke.

Ella is doing this right now too. I always forget about this stage between kids. For some reason Ella thinks all jokes start with "knock, knock" so she keeps saying "knock, knock" and when you say "who's there" she says "why did the chicken cross the road?" I'm sure you have to be there but it cracks me up every time.
