Knock Knock

So we still have a week of summer left before school starts for the Barrett household. We are doing our best to enjoy it despite most of our friends being back at school already and the pools closing during the week.

To keep ourselves entertained, we like to tell jokes. Jack is getting pretty good at remembering a number of knock knock jokes. He loves the Owl's who, cow's moo one. He's also a big fan of the banana, banana, orange one. (Although he sometimes forgets the rule of threes).

And we've learned in the past week or so, Reid is getting the joke-telling bug too.

Reid started retelling this joke after hearing Jack and Dad tell it a lot.

Knock Knock
Who's there?
Interrupting Chicken
Interrupting Chicken who?
Bawk! (or in Reid's case... No!)

He told it to Aunt Susie when she and the boys came to play on Sunday. He tells me, Steve, and Jack any time we'll listen. And tonight at bedtime, he got on a roll. He told me the joke about half a dozen times, cracking me up each time since he is now making the chicken noise instead of saying no. I finally had to cut him off.

Our boys definitely like to be funny and to make others laugh. I love it when I'm the one giggling with them.
