Monday Moment

Content Warning: I am not sure if this crosses some kind of line. I have been debating posting this humorous story for a couple of weeks. If you are easily offended or if you are not a mom of boys, please stop reading now.

My boys love to tell jokes. They tell all kinds of jokes, most of which don't make any sense. A few months ago, David cleverly came up with a Nut joke. He said, "Guess what is the only kind of nut I can touch?" The answer was: "Doughnuts."

We were really caught off guard recently when his brother changed the punch line.

5 year-old David: What is the only kind of nut I can touch?
7 year-old Jonathan: I know, I know- YOUR nuts!!

David got this funny look on his face. Seth and I tried not to laugh. It was hysterical as it dawned on David what Jonathan meant. (And, yes, we moved on from that joke rather quickly.)

Life with boys- always entertaining!

You know I am really beginning to think it must take more than one boy to come up with this stuff. Gabe says some of the funniest things but nothing quite like this. It is too funny the things your boys come up with. I love it! I guess as Gabe gets older and has more friends he will begin this as well.

Ha! That's great!

Don't you always wonder how these things translate at school?

Teacher: We need to not open that snack - it has nuts, and David can't touch nuts.

David: Yeah, I can only touch MY nuts!
