It's hard not to laugh


Mo was re-enacting a scene for Cars last night with his toys. In his 2 year old voice I heard, "Mack, Mack." Then the truck said, "I'm not a Mack, I'm a refrigerator truck. Get it right you moron!" It was hard not to laugh while telling him that it was not nice to say "moron." I'd never thought there was anything in the movie he shouldn't repeat, but last night I heard it.


Mo also has some funny new games. Mo says, "huh?" and then tells you to say, "huh?" This game will go on as long as someone will play it with him. He likes to play the same game, with the variation of one person saying "no" and the other saying "yes." And then there's the Knock Knock jokes. Except Mo doesn't understand the process, so it generally ends up like this: Mo says, "I say Knock Knock, you say Who's There?" "Knock Knock" "Who's There?" "Knock Knock" "Knock Knock Who?" "No, you say Who's There."


It's funny how easily entertained they are at 2. Kaia wants to play elaborate games that involve the alphabet or counting or stories, and I only occasionally understand her rules. So for now, let me just say, "Huh?"

Huh? We had a similar experience with knock-knock jokes when our kids were little. And you're right, they are so easily amused at that age. Too bad they grow out of that! :)

Mo must be an older 2. Mine's not that advanced yet. But, it is so hard to discipline them when they are doing something funny. Sometimes, while doing nothing around the house, my husband will immitate Eric Cartman from southpark and blurt out, "Monkey balls". Well, last night, Annalise went around saying, "Monkey balls, monkey balls."

You can't tell them no if they got it from you.

I've had almost the same thing happen to me when my youngest
was 4.......


Only it involved a car and sign language............



I think they get that from their dad.

That's cute. He and Red Chief should get together; he keeps quoting Cars too.

I LOVED this post! It made me think about my kiddos doing the same thing (with the knock knock jokes) when they were little!

That is a fabulous picture of Mo.
