Our 5-year-old (almost 6) niece, Ashlynn, tells a lot of jokes.  I think it must be the age, because most kids that age seem to be trying their hand in joke telling. However the jokes usually go something like this:

“knock-knock”
“Who’s there?”
“Chair?”
“Chair Who?”
giggle giggle giggle…no answer

They usually make absolutely no sense and the humor is in the attempt at the kiddo to crack a joke.  This is why we laugh and then that is why they keep trying!

I totally expect Cooper to be a class clown. He loves to be the center of attention and has been telling random stories for over a year now. They are usually pretty fantastical stories too. (Hmmm…I’m noticing a “like Daddy” trend here….) This fall when Cooper starts preschool, well, I can already guess what the teacher will tell me about him and his struggles in class (and his strengths)!

So when Cooper told us his first joke the other day-and did it flawlessly-we were pretty surprised! I figured he would start that next year or so and that he would mess up a lot before he understood how to deliver a joke.  Here’s the joke Cooper told us:

“Knock-knock”
“Who’s there?”
“Ivan”
“Ivan who?”
“I’ve been working on the railroad, all the live long day!”

ha ha ha ha ha! I am pretty sure he repeated this off of a cartoon. I doubt he has figured out all that goes in to a joke. But it is only a matter of time before he’s driving everyone crazy with his corny, cheesy jokes! My own comedian!

  1. LOL, yes watch out! Will tells jokes ALL the time!! He tells the bee one too. Luckily he’s got Olivia to laugh at all his jokes, and everytime she cracks up like it’s the first time she’s heard it! 🙂 Will’s got a couple of Pirate jokes that are pretty funny too.
