A little something to make you smile

My 5-year-old granddaughter, is full of life, and likes to “do and say” funny things to make me smile.

Yesterday, she presented me with another one of her amazing jokes.

Are you ready for this?

Her: Why did the duck cross the playground?

Me: To play with the other ducks?

Her: No….to get to the other slide! ย Get it?! ๐Ÿ™‚

And then she starts laughing at herself, and I can’t help but laugh with her, because, well, she just makes me smile

And you must admit, this really was a pretty good one, now wasn’t it?

She then attempts to tell me another one, but by then she was being very silly, and it just wasn’t as successful, even to her!

In fact, it was so bad she couldn’t even bring herself to laugh at her own joke!

But that didn’t slow her down, she just moved on to some other form of silliness.

Ahhh,… the joy of the life and times of a 5-year-old. Savor the moments, each and every one of them.

I have a joke for you!

I’m sitting at the table with my 5-year-old granddaughter watching her paint a picture, when my mind takes a leave of absence, and I decide I’m going to tell her a joke!

Now for anyone who has ever told a kid a joke before, you know that you must be prepared for, well…failure.

So in my absent state of mind, I proceed to tell her the only joke I can remember the punch line for.

Me: Knock, knock

Her: Who’s there

Me: Boo

Her: Boo who

Me: Boo who!! Why are you crying? ๐Ÿ™‚

Her: That’s not funny grandma. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Hmmm. I guess I won’t be telling that one again!

But before you leave disappointed with the bad joke as well….she let me know that she had a “good joke” for me!

Are you ready for this?

Her: So Grandma, what do you call a princess that takes all day long to clean her room?

Me: I don’t know. What do you call her?

Her: You call her “Slow White“! Get it Grandma? I changed “Snow” to “Slow” to make it funny!! (at which she begins to laugh uproariously!)

Me: Oh I get it! ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s a good one! You are soooo funny!

Because that’s what Grandma’s do. ย They laugh at their grandkids jokes.

All of them!
