Out of the mouths of babes...

We have a new Hooters in town. The other night, we were all in the car and drove by Hooters. They have some fake palm trees outside the building, and Brendan (my 5-yr-old) looked over and very excitedly exclaimed, "Look Mommy, COCONUTS!!!" Joe & I died laughing, but we couldn't tell him why it was so funny. I finally just said, "yep, lots of coconuts over there".

Brendan has also become quite the joke teller lately. He always wants to tell jokes to me in the car. Thing is...they don't make any sense! lol He doesn't quite understand the concept of a punch line. It's still cute though. Jokes such as:

"Why did the frog go to the doctor?"
"Because he had a lily pad!"
(insert fake laugh here)
"Why did the sign have legs?"
"Because it fell on an elephant!"
(Get it?! No, me neither)

"Knock, Knock"
"Who's There?"
"Me Who?"
"Mommy, say Brendan who?"
"Brendan, who?"
(silence, as I'm totally confused at this point)
"Mommy, say Door who?"
"Door who?"
(and on and on making no sense whatsoever)

"Why did the chicken cross the road?"
"Because he has a nest"

And they go on & on like that, he can belt them out one right after the other for the entire 25 minute drive home every evening! LOL

Knock Knock jokes are about the same with Nathan- but they do get better! As long as you can hear the same ones over, and over, and over...
