Tiny Talk

My kiddos are still in the "knock, knock" phase. Their favorite one goes like this:

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Interrupting cow.

There are lots of variations, such as:
Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Interrupting donkey.

My favorite is one Punkin made up:
Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Interrupting nose.

Does this dinner conversation have a familiar ring to it?

Little Man: I'm eating my chicken.
WeaverDad: It's not chicken, it's fish.
Little Man: (pause) You mean this swimmed in the water? (Complete with hand motions of a fish swimming.)
Punkin: Well, it did swimmed, but now it's dead.

I really wish writing could do the dead comment justice. It was so matter-of-fact, it just cracked us up.

And, by the way, why isn't it swimmed?

For more funny things kids say, check out Mary's site at Not Before 7.

You're right, why isn't it swimmed? :-) I did crack up about the dead comment. I can totally see her doing that.

I love the matter of fact way they say things some times. YOu can't quite capture it on "paper", but I know EXACTLY what you mean.

Oh, the knock knock jokes...
