We tried again at dinner time.

Scott: Why did the chicken cross the road?

Jonah: What chicken?

(I dissolve into giggles.)

Me: Right, we have chickens, and we don’t want them to cross the road?

Jonah: Yeah, unless they are holding our hands! (He demonstrates, wings outstretched.)

    It’s always so cute when they first start learning about jokes. My boys love this one.

    B: Where to fish keep there money?
    M: ?
    B: In a riverBANK.

    Then they dissolve into giggles.
