Knock-Knock Joke of the Day

On the way to a doctor's appointment for Ms. Dimples, the boys were having fun telling knock-knock jokes to each other. They still don't get it - but anyway....after a stretch of silence this came along:

5YO- "Mom, say 'knock-knock' to me"
Me - "Knock-knock"
5YO- "Who's there?"
Me - "The problem is I don't have a knock-knock joke"
5YO- "The problem is I don't have a knock-knock joke, who?"
Me - (hysterical laughing in the van)....

...then again, maybe they DO get it.

You Can Lead an Elephant to Water, But You Can't Make it Drink

I heard some banging in the kitchen and when I went to investigate, this is what I found. Ms. Dimples first pointed to the elephant and said, "Dis a fant," and then pointed to the water and said, "dis a wato," and "dis a wato an a fant."

Made in China

As a child I don't remember having any awareness of where my toys came from, as far as country of origin. So it struck me as particularly funny today when our 5 year old (#2 boy) said, "Mom, I think most of our toys were made in China!" and he then proceeded to bring out example, after example that proved his point.
